Wisconsin has historically been pretty purple with the same number of democrats and republicans winning the state in presidential elections. One reason we’re encouraging so many folks to move to Milwaukee is to attract more progressives to put us on equal footing with our Chicago city neighbors Chicago and Minneapolis.
We want progressive voters in our city both to turn our state blue(r) and to bring in professionals who can help our workforce cater better to different marginalized folks. We are looking for folks to help desegregate our city, to advocate for POCs who have long been treated as political pawns and bartering tokens, and to broaden our civic services to offer more seats at the decision making tables.
Not all of Wisconsin is under the thumb of Scott Walker. Come help us prove it!
