In case you didn’t get the email from our field director Kristen this morning, here’s an update on all that We Are Wisconsin members have achieved together:
Across the state, We Are Wisconsin volunteers are hitting the streets having one on one conversations with their neighbors. As of today, six days from our first primary election day, We Are Wisconsin volunteers have knocked on over 100,000 doors across the state — 102,791 to be exact!
We Are Wisconsin by the numbers:
- In 23 offices across the state
- 4,276 energetic and inspiring volunteers have made
- 147,488 phone calls, and knocked on…
- 102,791 doors! (and counting)
We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved together, but we can’t let up now.
I’m continually inspired to hear stories like that of Dan Mitchell, a mail carrier from Ripon, Wisconsin, as he headed out the door for a canvass:
I’m not a fan of politics. I don’t consider myself a Republican or Democrat, but I’m a citizen and I’m concerned. If we don’t stand up and fight for what’s right, who will?
Like many, Dan comes in every week to knock on doors and talk to voters about how important the upcoming elections are. I want to share with you what we’re hearing through volunteers like Dan.
We’re hearing how our elected officials have failed to represent the people of their districts, instead supporting Walker and corporations that have more interest in lining their own pockets than investing in Wisconsin’s future. We’re hearing stories about the sacrifices families have had to make.
But we’re also hearing about communities coming together to support each other and make sure that attacks like these on hard-working families never happen again.
We’re approaching our first primary elections on July 12th. Can we count on you to join us this weekend to help support our work on behalf of Jessica King, Jennifer Shilling, Shelly Moore, Fred Clark, Sandy Pasch, and Nancy Nusbaum?
Can’t volunteer with us this weekend? Help us by donating $6 — one for each candidate on the ballot July 12th.
Thank you for your inspiring support and commitment to taking back our state!

We hope you can join us!
