Event description

Description

Wisconsin United to Amend is proud to host the first 21st Century Political Reform Chautauqua – and you are invited.

This is a statewide event for folks who understand that our Republic is lost to the big money that controls our elections and a majority of our politicians.

We The People have to Restore our Republic from this corrupt, big-money political system.

On September 7th and 8th, 2019, we will hold the Chautauqua at the Dunn County Historical Society, in Menomonie Wisconsin. We hope this will be in the nature of the many Chautauquas around the nation in the 1800s and early 1900s - held to educate citizen about political conditions and actions needed – before the time of mass communications.

We will have presentations by leaders of organizations that are currently involved in building the movement needed to create reforms necessary to Restore our Republic. But it won’t all be business – we will have good food, entertainment, and opportunities for you do network with Wisconsin’s busy reformers.

Wisconsin is currently leading the nation in building the political reform movement. And we are determined to Restore our Republic from the dysfunctional political system that has stolen it. This is your chance to become part of history – much like Wisconsin is well known for its prowess for the Gilded Age reform movement lead by Fighting Bob Lafollette. Wisconsin can, nay must, lead the nation again.

Will you become part of this historic event? We need you to both join us at the event, and then to become active reformers who will move Wisconsin, and the nation, to have politicians who once again represent We the People. See you there!
