As part of the Recall Walker Kick Off Rally on November 19 at the State Capitol, We Are Wisconsin has announced that it will participate in the Can Walker Food Drive sponsored by Teamsters Joint Council 39.
“With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we felt it was especially important to remember our fellow Wisconsinites in need,” said Beth Kirchman of Teamsters Local 662. “From supporting our local food pantries to recalling a governor who attacks our rights, our jobs, and our quality of life, the members of Teamsters Joint Council 39 are doing our best to make Wisconsin a better place to live.”
“Caring for our friends and neighbors in need is the Wisconsin Way,” added Kristen Crowell, Executive Director of We Are Wisconsin. “By increasing taxes on low-income families, giving tax breaks to the wealthy, kicking tens of thousands off BadgerCare, and dozens of other mean-spirited policies, the governor shows us every day that the Walker Way is not the Wisconsin Way.”
Crowell indicated that her organization was proud to help sponsor the food drive. “We are confident that the thousands of Wisconsinites expected at the Recall Walker Kick Off Rally on November 19 will show the charity that we in the Badger State are famous for. Helping to feed families in need is just one more way that we are standing up for our Wisconsin.”
