This Week In #WIRebellion






Support Higher Ed, Lower Debt


Urge Legislators to Support This Common Sense Plan and Include It in the State Budget

The 2017 state budget as proposed by Gov. Scott Walker and currently being debated by the state legislature spends over $76 BILLION DOLLARS..

So what’s in it to help the one million student loan borrowers of Wisconsin? Nothing. Nada. Zip. $0.0

Let’s change that, starting today.

The Higher Ed,Lower Debt Act could help hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites by helping them refinance their student loans, just like you can with a mortgage.

We’re asking you to call, write or email your state legislators and urge them to support this common sense plan and include it in the state budget.

Rebellions are built on hope...


They are.

And with what is going on with the madness and recklessness of Donald Trump.

And with what is going on with the lapdog Congress led by Trump allies Paul Ryan in the House and Ron Johnson in the Senate.

And with what is going on in our beloved Wisconsin and the pathological failure and incompetence of Scott Walker.

We must rebel. We must build it on hope.

But most importantly, we must build it together.

Are you as fed up as we are with pundits, Republicans, know-it-alls and do-nothings who keep trying to say the diversity of progressives is our biggest weakness, as they try to divide us?

We are.

Our diversity is our greatest strength. Our diversity is our power.

We know you’re ready for the nonsense to end. It’s not going to happen over night. It’s going to happen one day at a time, one week at a time, one action at a time.

Here is our plan and we hope you will join with us.

As you know, at One Wisconsin Now, we are fighting every day for our shared progressive values, ideas and policies. With your help, we have built a non-stop communications factory, not only being among the state’s strongest progressive voices in the media, but also fighting back against those who threaten our state and our allies.

We want to fight back with a weekly campaign. We want your help in finding a critical action everyone can take on a weekly basis to build upon the protests, marches and dedicated progressive across Wisconsin and across the country who are standing up against this tyranny we face.

This is #YourOWNRebellion. Here’s how it will work.

With your help and working with our partners in every corner of the state, we will offer up a way in which you can fight back that week. It may be writing a letter to the editor, or attending a local hearing going on in your community, sharing information on social media, calling a specific and targeted elected official, to name just a handful of these parts of the rebellion we can do to start today in taking back our state and our nation.

We will be soliciting your advice and counsel, but we need to know if you are ready to join us.

We need you to affirmatively agree to receive this information from us, by clicking here and agreeing to be a part of #YourOWNRebellion.

We want results and we won’t waste your time.

Are you in?

It’s up to all of us.

Above all we must have hope. Together.
