This Week's Action

Call, write or email your representatives in the U.S. House and Senate
Defend DACA

“Heartless evil.” That was our reaction to the announcement from Donald Trump that he would undo the actions of President Obama to protect more than 800,000 undocumented children through the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

Donald Trump and his congressional enablers shouldn’t be able to threaten children with deportation just because these Republicans don’t like Barack Obama.

This week we’re asking you to call, write or email your representatives in the U.S. House and Senate and tell them to defend DACA and the children who benefit from it.

Children covered by DACA have been able to go to college, get good jobs and have access to things like a driver’s license that so many of us take for granted.

They shouldn’t have their lives thrown into chaos by racism and resentment run amok.

Some of Wisconsin’s federal representatives have come out strongly against Trump’s actions on DACA, and they deserve our thanks. Others have not, and they need to hear from us right now that we support DACA and they should too.

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.
