The spring election is only 32 days away and that means the Our Wisconsin Revolution endorsement process is OPEN! We have endorsed candidates in local races all over the state and we’ll continue to process endorsements requests for the next week or so.
Check out a few of our endorsements:
This election cycle we are encouraging all our chapters to endorse at least one local candidate. Whether it’s School Board, County Board or City Council, these local races have ability to transform communities. At the grassroots level we have the opportunity to seat people-powered candidates in cities, towns and villages all over Wisconsin this April, so get your endorsements requests in!
An Our Wisconsin Revolution endorsement comes with one of our most valuable resources, the power of our members. If you are a candidate running for office (or you know of one) you can request to participate in the OWR Endorsement process by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We are accepting endorsement inquiry’s until March 9th.
All over the state, our members and their chapters are busy working to transform their communities. Here are some write ups from the last month:
Plans are in the works for the 3rd Annual Our Wisconsin Revolution Convention. Make sure to Save the date – Friday, June 21st and Saturday, June 22nd.
This year we are hosting our 3rd Annual Convention at UW-Stevens Point! The Our Wisconsin Revolution Annual Convention creates a rare opportunity for members throughout the state to converge in Stevens Point for the weekend. Trainings will be held on a variety of topics and members from our chapters will reflect and share what they have learned this past year. The OWR Annual Convention is a valuable learning experience, creates member camaraderie and cultivates valuable partnerships throughout Wisconsin.
Just like last years convention, we will have single and double occupancy dorms as well as linen packages available at a very affordable rate. *If you would prefer hotel accommodations you must book them yourself, OWR is not responsible for accommodations outside of the UWSP dorms. Please note that there are multiple events happening in Central Wisconsin the weekend of the June 21st so if hotel accommodations are a must – book them soon.
Sign up here, to be updated first on convention details like speakers and breakout sessions! We are also starting to accept submission for breakout session proposals, so if you are interested in helping plan this years convention, consider joining the Events Committee. Email Grace Wagner at email@example.com to join!
Our structure consists of these committees: Bylaws, Communications, Chapter Development, Elections & Advocacy, Events (Ad Hoc), Executive, Membership & Fundraising, Platform & Policy, Popular Education.
Joining a committee is a great way to stay up to date on issues that you value and meet members from around the state. These committees would flourish with more member involvement.
