Oct. 26 - Matt Rothschild speaks

The La Crosse Dems are holding a fundraiser dinner on Saturday, October 26 at the Concordia. Social hour starts at 5. Dinner is served at 6. Funds will be used to help pay for space, materials, and equipment to educate, canvass, and GOTV in 2020. The Coulee Region's Dem state electeds will be under attack as Rs have vowed to "win" a veto-proof majority. And, of course, consider *resident trump.

So, the catered lasagna dinner is for a good cause and worth your time even before you consider the great and wonderful speaker, Matt Rothschild.

Matt Rothschild was a leader (writer, editor, publisher) at The Progressive magazine for decades. In 2015, when Mike McCabe stepped away from the great public resource he founded, the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, Rothschild took over as its Executive Director. Both organizations have been instrumental in holding and protecting Wisconsin's progressive seeds as the Walker/Vos/Fitzgerald wildfire continues to burn decades' worth of people-centered policies and priorities.

The latest WisDC initiative has been educating about fair voting maps.

Their Five Things You Can Do list includes:
1 HELP OVERTURN CITIZENS UNITED
2 SUPPORT NONPARTISAN REDISTRICTING FOR WISCONSIN
3 SUPPORT THE CAMPAIGN INTEGRITY PACKAGE
4 MAKE IT EASIER, NOT HARDER, TO VOTE
5 REENFRANCHISE FELONS

Join fellow progressives on October 26 to plan, listen, and learn how we can be more effective in 2020. You need not be a party member to participate. If cost is an issue, email treasurer@laxdems.com.
