In the News

Our earned media success includes dozens of national television appearances, a regular spot on a weekly political talk show, and tens of thousands of media hits generated from our in-house research and communication programs.

According to a study from One Wisconsin Institute, it takes an average of 19.7 years to pay off a 4-year degree.

One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Analiese Eicher appeared on WRRD-AM to discuss the student loan debt crisis.

In one of the suits, filed by One Wisconsin Institute [a judge] blocked early-voting limits contained in the lame-duck bills.

[One Wisconsin Institute] persuaded U.S. District Judge James Peterson ... to strike down the limits on early in-person voting.

Indeed Walker himself apparently faced this problem, as Analiese Eicher, Executive Director of ... One Wisconsin Now, points out.

Tony Evers says Foxconn's promise to employ 13,000 people is "unrealistic," meanwhile the company insists it will uphold its promises.

One Wisconsin Now, a progressive non-profit advocacy group, called him “one of, if not the, worst politician in America for women.”

In 2016, a federal court in Wisconsin struck down the requirement that college or university IDs be unexpired.

Analiese Eicher, executive director of One Wisconsin Now, said Tuesday's disclosure made Republican lawmakers look bad.

The ruling echoed Judge Peterson’s previous 2016 injunction he handed down after One Wisconsin Institute sued ... over voting laws.

However, while Republicans were decrying Evers’ remarks, the progressive state group One Wisconsin Now welcomed them.

One Wisconsin Now said WILL isn't an organization producing unbiased information because they're ... a lobbying organization.

One Wisconsin Now revealed that Hagedorn founded a school that prohibits anyone working there from being in a same-sex relationship.

One Wisconsin Institute... asked U.S. District Judge James Peterson to enforce his earlier [early voting] decision.

"Whatever the outcome is, the electorate is going to be older, whiter and more conservative. That's just who shows up to these races."
