Listed are the locations that have or will launch volunteer action teams.
If there is a place in your county that doesn't yet have a team in the works, just reach out to me, and I’ll help you get organized! Alex Pond: firstname.lastname@example.org

FROM THE DESK
OF Alex Pond:
Hello everybody! We are in the middle of our #Fight4Medicaid Week of Action (June 8th - June 15th). During this week of action, we are looking to support Governor Evers & our legislators by mobilizing our grassroots network to pressure legislators who may potentially be pressured to vote for our legislative priorities. We are knocking on doors, making phone calls, writing letters to the editor & hosting community events to make sure our voices are heard by our Representatives as we fight for the People's Budget & Medicaid Expansion.
We need all the help we can get to make sure we let our representatives know the importance of the People’s Budget, Healthcare & Medicaid Expansion for our communities. We’ll be doing events all week so sign up to #Fight4Medicaid here!
We strongly encourage you to share your personal stories on social media about how Medicaid Expansion will help you or a loved one using the hashtag #Fight4Medicaid. Attached is a one-pager on posting digital content for this effort!
We need your help!! We are currently recruiting for our Organizing Fellowship program across the state.This is a great program for anyone who is interested in learning and developing their own organizing skills. Fellows will work in communities across the state to help build and support our local neighborhood teams and help to lay the groundwork for a successful 2020! Please send this link to anyone you know who may be interested: http://bit.ly/BlueWI2019.
I look forward to working with you through the summer to help build up our grassroots infrastructure across Wisconsin!
The Wisconsin Leader Development (WILD) project is holding a 2.5-day workshop for organizers, activists, and movement leaders in Wausau from July 25-27. Workshop website is here.
Bill Hogseth is recruiting a team comprised of interested folks from the different county parties in this region to attend the workshop together and bring some of the organizing skills back to our teams in the Chippewa Valley.
The workshop is designed for groups of 5-8 to attend together and sharpen their skills to build relationships, structure effective teams, develop strategy, launch campaigns, recruit volunteers, and use stories to communicate shared values. It is an excellent experience and those from Eau Claire who have taken it, recommend the workshop highly.

Please Join Our Membership Survey
Help Us Improve Our Activities and Outreach
In any given general election, there are a minimum of approximately 10,000 Chippewa County voters who tend to vote Democratic. Yet only a fraction of our neighbors are active in their local county Democratic Party. We would like to engage in more outreach, increase participation beyond elections, and grow our membership. But before we do that, we'd like to start by asking our current and recent members about your preferences and ideas for strengthening your local party.
Please take about 2 minutes and click through an anonymous online survey that can help us design public outreach around the issues and activities most in line with Chippewa County progressives.
The survey can be found at this link.
Thank you very much.
