This is an excellent piece on why we do what we do. We’re disappointed we can’t knock on doors because it’s long been the most effective way to reach voters, and we’ve always been good at it! But like political organizations around the country, we’re adjusting to the new reality, and that’s why scaling up our virtual phone banking operation is so important. If you want to help make a difference and elect Democrats this year, sign up to volunteer today!
This debate is an excellent encapsulation of the reasons we support Tricia Zunker for WI-07. In the midst of a global pandemic, it’s a no-brainer to support the candidate who believes healthcare is a right and that voters shouldn’t be forced to risk their safety in person at the polls. Watch the whole debate here for more!
We have another important election in Wisconsin on May 12! Tricia Zunker is an amazing candidate who is running for the open seat in the 7th Congressional District, and we need your help to make phone calls from the comfort of your own home to get out the vote in WI-07 to get her elected!
If you haven’t yet been trained on virtual phone banking and the autodialer, don’t worry! We’re holding four different training sessions to help folks get up to speed. We’ll be using these tools for the general election as well so now is a great time to learn them if you’re not already familiar. Sign up for the time that works best for you, and you’ll get an email with details on how to access the training session remotely:
- Saturday, May 2, 10AM – 12PM
- Sunday, May 3, 12PM – 2PM
- Saturday, May 9, 10AM – 12PM
- Sunday, May 10, 12PM – 2PM
Already a Team Gold phone banking veteran? You’re awesome! You can sign up directly for any of the following days using the sign-up links below. You should plan to make at least 40 calls at your convenience between 9AM and 9PM on each day you’re volunteering:
This weekend we had 14 volunteers working from home make over 2000 phone calls in 3 days to remind everyone how important casting a mail-in ballot for Jill Karofsky for the Wisconsin Supreme Court is for the future of our state! Way to go Team Gold!
You still have until 4/2 to request an absentee ballot at myvote.wi.gov, and if you want to help get the word out, you can always sign up to volunteer here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdSa8mB5UHejwryXh-AYSRDln94Rf20f_-7dCxAqLdbTfLfTg/viewform?fbclid=IwAR1580PLdStxUwMscmkaNkoEZfFcUW8wtcFJwSklVOCgqQKUFxkuGVvzU80

You can still fulfill your civic duty and vote in the April 7 Wisconsin Supreme Court election while practicing social distancing if you request a mail-in absentee ballot from the city clerk’s office! It’s super easy to do, just click that link, fill out your information, and make sure you have a picture of your photo ID ready to upload. The deadline to request one is Thursday, April 2.
In accordance with public health guidelines and following the example of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, we are canceling all in-person events leading up to the April 7 election. Keep an eye on this space for opportunities to get involved in the virtual effort to elect Jill Karofsky to the state Supreme Court!
Enough is enough. 72% of Wisconsinites, including majorities of Democrats and Republicans, want fair and nonpartisan district maps in order to hold our elected representatives accountable to their voters, but Speaker Vos and Leader Fitzgerald have no interest in the will of the people.
On April 7, you can fight back. Vote for Jill Karofsky for Justice, who will support fair maps on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. And if you live in one of the 9 counties where a fair maps referendum is on the ballot, you can vote “yes” on that too!
From DPW Chair Ben Wikler: “It shouldn’t be a political fight to make sure our children get the nutrition they need to pay attention in class, run around with their friends and not have to focus on hunger pains or the worry of when they’ll get their next meal. But that’s exactly what Trump is trying to do as he threatens the basic food security 315,000 of our state’s children get through SNAP. His cruelty is endless.”
