Our Wisconsin Revolution, Wisconsin’s chapter of the national organization formed to continue the energy from the Bernie Sanders for President campaign, announced Monday, November 27th that 6,000 members voted overwhelmingly in favor of endorsing Tim Burns for Wisconsin Supreme Court.

“We are excited to make our first state-wide endorsement. Our Wisconsin Revolution (OWR) is a people-powered, member-driven organization. We believe it is time to make sure that the Wisconsin Supreme Court is truly acting in the interest of the people. This is why we support Tim Burns for Supreme Court Justice,” said Sarah Lloyd, OWR Co-Chair. “Tim Burns is running for this important position to make sure that the judicial system and especially the highest court in the state is acting to ensure a level playing field for everyone and not corporate interests. This focus aligns with the values OWR is fighting for in Wisconsin. Our members know Tim will bring an experienced, authentic voice of reason to the Supreme Court, a voice that sides with the people of this state. We are eager to mobilize 6,000 members across the state in support of Tim through the Primary and General Election in April.”

OWR will be running canvasses and contacting voters in support of endorsed candidates up and down the ticket for the Spring and Fall elections in 2018.

2017 in review

While 2017 wasn’t a great year for America (it really kinda sucked, right?), it was a great year for launching Our Wisconsin Revolution. While Washington, DC and Madison, WI were hijacked by the special interests (Foxconn anyone?), our people-powered movement grew and thrived throughout Wisconsin.

Check out what we, as a unified community managed to accomplish in 2017.

If you didn’t become a member of OWR in 2017, consider doing so today. It doesn’t cost any money and it will only take a few moments of your time.

Our average contribution in 2017 was $16. Consider kicking in $16, or whatever you can afford today, and help keep this important movement thriving.

Together, we’re going to take back our great state.
