This Week's Action

Scott Walker's hypocrisy has hit an all-time high, and we’re calling him out on it!
Call Out Scott Walker On His Hypocrisy

We all know Scott Walker is the kind of career politician who is willing to do or say anything to advance his political ambitions. But this guy’s hypocrisy has hit an all-time high, and we’re calling him out on it.

At a press conference this week, we revealed that Scott Walker, as head of the Republican Governor’s Association, took a $25,000 contribution from a marijuana industry trade group. At the same time, he was working to impose a drug testing scheme that would take away help with food, healthcare and job training for low income individuals if they used marijuana!

If you’re as outraged as we are by this, then CONTACT GOV. SCOTT WALKER and tell him he can’t have it both ways.

Scott Walker with his drug testing scheme is trying to to make Wisconsin a national leader in cruel, unnecessary and damaging policies for some of our most vulnerable populations for his own political benefit.

Taking campaign cash from a group that supports legally using marijuana at the same time as working to take critical services away from people in Wisconsin if they use it is just wrong.

Contact Gov. Scott Walker and tell him to knock it off.

Does your vote count in Wisconsin? Maybe not.

Wisconsin’s voting maps are so skewed to benefit one political party that a federal court ordered lawmakers to redraw the maps.

What can you do?! Come find out in this town hall meeting. Former State Senator Dale Schultz (R) and Former State Senator Tim Cullen (D) will fill us in on
- “gerrymandering” (creation of unfair voting maps),
- the Wisconsin case now in the U.S. Supreme Court,
- pending Wisconsin legislation to change the redistricting process, and
- what we can do as Wisconsin citizens to oppose unfair maps.

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.
