Spring Ahead to Democracy-Saving-Time

in Wisconsin

There are just 3 weeks left until the April 4 election for Wisconsin Supreme Court and State Senate. With your help, we can flip the WI Supreme Court toward democracy AND help protect Democratic Governor Evers' veto power.

Judge Janet Protasiewicz stands for reproductive rights and fair electoral maps. Her opponent for the WI Supreme Court is an election denier who supports the state's draconian abortion ban.

Democratic State Senate candidate Jodi Habush Sinykin is a consensus builder and community advocate. If she wins on April 4, Republicans will lose the  supermajority in the WI State Senate!

Mondays @ 5 pm - 7 pm EDT

Thursdays @ 5 pm EDT (Swing Blue Partner)

Sundays @ 4 pm - 6 pm EDT

What's Next for 2023 and Beyond

At the Frontline Update on Sun, March 26, you'll hear the lowdown on our efforts to save democracy in Wisconsin and get a preview of the actions we have planned for the rest of 2023. We want your feedback on our plans!

Sun, Mar 26 @ 5 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

New Leadership for NC Dem Party

The North Carolina Democratic Party just elected an exciting new team to leadership positions – the youngest state party leaders in the country.

Learn more about the future of Democratic organizing in NC at the next All In for NC meeting on March 27. NC Activist Jessica Laurenz will speak about "Understanding the NC Political Landscape." 

Mon, Mar 27 @ 2:30 pm - 4 pm EDT

Diamond Staton-Williams is one of just two Democrats who flipped a seat in the North Carolina state legislature in November. She won by just 639 votes, so you can be sure activists' calls to increase turnout in NC helped her to get elected.

Diamond has lost no time getting to work for the people of NC. She has already sponsored 8 bills: to codify Roe, to expand Medicaid, to modernize nursing regulations and more, and she is the primary sponsor of bills to require fair redistricting maps and to prohibit discrimination against natural hairstyles.

Thanks to every volunteer who made calls to NC, Diamond Staton-Williams is making a real difference.
