Budgets are how organizations demonstrate their real values. Our state budget will determine how vigorous will be our response to the increasing climate crisis, institutional racism, the increasing wealth gap, food insecurity, the increasing clean water issues, transportation equity, criminal justice reform, and more.
Getting involved in budget advocacy is a way to change things at the most fundamental level. If the question is whom do you love, the answer is in the budget.
Forward Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Sierra Club are actively working to make a difference. If you can, sign up to help make a difference.
Forward Wisconsin is a project of the Wisconsin Assembly Democrats aimed at lifting the voices of Wisconsinites who believe our budget should work for working families. Throughout the budget process, we’ll share ways for each and every Wisconsinite to engage, so we can move Governor Tony Evers’ budget forward and build a state that works for workers and families.
Throughout the month of March, we’re hosting virtual “Budget Action Meetings” that will provide opportunities to learn about the proposed budget and take concrete action.
Here’s the meeting schedule:
- March 3 at 7pm: Criminal Justice Reform and Democracy
- March 10 at 7pm: Education, Childcare, and Higher Education
- March 17 at 7pm: Climate, Environment and Equal Rights
- March 24 at 7pm: Healthcare
- March 31 at 7pm: Economy and Infrastructure
You can find more information and sign up to join us at ForwardWisc.com.
Registration for each budget action meeting will open at least one week before the meeting. Follow along and find content to share with your friends at Facebook.com/ForwardWisc and Twitter.com/Forward_Wisc.
