Madison NOW's LGBTQ Ally Training, Conducted by Outreach

Madison Public Library: Hawthorne Branch • Madison, WI

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 6:00pm

This training builds upon one’s capacity to provide inclusive environments for the LGBTQ community. Using our natural ally behaviors, we will learn how to establish sustainable change in our communities by being proactive allies, recognizing homophobia in our own lives, and reflecting on our power and privilege.

As a result of this training, participants will:

**Gain familiarity with commonly used terms.

**Understand the developmental needs for those coming out as LGBTQ.

**Engage in dialogue about how to be an effective, proactive ally to the LGBTQ community.

**Receive information on local, regional and national resources about Allyhood and the LGBTQ community.

**Gain context about the relationships between trans and non-binary politics and feminist politics.

**Learn how attacks on women's reproductive healthcare hurt the transgender community.

**Leave with a toolkit of how to make their spaces more inclusive of a variety of gender identities and expressions.

Madison NOW January Meeting w/Special Guest Rep. Lisa Subeck

Madison Public Library - room tbd • Madison, WI

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 6:00pm

Join us for our January meeting with Rep. Lisa Subeck! She'll share legislative updates with a focus on her Healthy Babies, Working Mothers bill, which ensures nursing mothers do not face unnecessary barriers in the workplace. The bill would bring Wisconsin law in line with federal employment regulations regarding breastfeeding and ensure that women who are taking unpaid break time to breastfeed or express breast milk do not lose eligibility for employer sponsored health insurance.

Following Rep. Subeck's talk, we'll discuss current and upcoming actions.

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.
