Description

Power To The Polls Wisconsin: VOTE!

Women's March is bringing Power to the Polls to Wisconsin! Power to the Polls (P2P) is a campaign to fight voter suppression and build electoral power for women, people of color and impacted communities. We are engaging 10 priority states on a national tour to register, educate and mobilize voters to take action in the 2018 midterm elections.

Two weeks ahead of the Wisconsin Primary the tour will come to Milwaukee to increase the progressive VOTE!

Wisconsin’s marginalized and progressive communities have been attacked by voter suppression efforts which also impacted the 2016 election results. There’s too much at stake in this election to sit on the sidelines. We have a real chance to turn things around and build a progressive majority. This year, we won special elections in Wisconsin Senate Districts 1 and 10, and we elected Rebecca Dalletto the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Voters are saying to the racist, sexist, xenophobic, ableist, and transphobic policies of the Trump administration and majority in Congress.

We can win by working to amplify the women’s narrative in the electoral space, support local grassroots leaders and elect more women and people of color to public office. The P2P tour is only going to 10 priority states and Wisconsin is one of them, be a part of the movement for victory by registering today!
