One Wisconsin Now Unveils Online Activist Calendar

Another Tool to Help People Across Wisconsin Get Out, Speak Up and Fight Back Against Right-Wing Agenda of Donald Trump, Paul Ryan and Scott Walker

MADISON, Wis. — All across Wisconsin people are energized and pushing back against Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, Scott Walker and the rest of the right wing cabal whose policies hurt our communities and tilt the system against hardworking people, in favor of the wealthy and well connected special interests. To help people speak up and make their voices heard, One Wisconsin Now this week rolled out an online calendar for activists to post events and to find out what’s happening all across the state.

“There’s incredible energy and determination by the hardworking people of Wisconsin to fight back and to have their voices heard,” commented One Wisconsin Now Program Director Analiese Eicher. “What we’ve put together is a great tool for people to use to publicize their events and to connect with other activists and work together.”

The calendar is available online at http://onewisconsinnow.org/rebellion/.

Using a simple online form, organizers can post information on the page hosted on One Wisconsin Now’s website about what, when and where they’ll be holding events and actions on national, state and community issues. Events will be listed chronologically and users can also access information about events that may be going on near them from a map of the state. The calendar also allows users to sign up to attend actions and a notice will be sent to the event organizer.

Eicher noted activists in Wisconsin have been making extensive and effective use of social media to publicize events and connect with others. One Wisconsin Now’s online reach, including over 95,000 online subscribers, 9,200 plus Twitter followers and in excess of 22,400 Facebook likes is another tool to reach even more people.

She concluded, “Our calendar is one more way to help people get out, speak up and fight back for our country, our state and our communities. The special interests may be getting their way with the Republicans in charge today with their lobbyists and their campaign cash. But that only works if we let them get away with it by staying home and staying quiet.”
