Want to help Recall the Republican 8? Want to stand up for worker’s rights and stop Governor Walker’s extreme agenda? Want to meet like-minded folks committed to fight for what’s right and move Wisconsin forward? Then it’s time for a road trip!
Here is some information on a great opportunity to get out and help with the grassroots efforts to Recall the Republican 8.
What we witnessed from the Senate Republicans last night was truly heinous. Seven decades of labor peace annihilated in less than five minutes, all to cement Scott Walker's divisive political overreach that has nothing to do with fixing Wisconsin's fiscal problems and everything to do with power-grabbing at the expense of working Wisconsin families. Today the Assembly will take up the so-called "budget repair" bill, stripped of fiscal provisions, that denies hard-working teachers, nurses and corrections workers the right to bargain collectively.

I am doing my job in representing the citizens of northern Wisconsin who have overwhelmingly expressed opposition to Governor Walker's plan to eliminate collective bargaining. Thousands of citizens have contacted my office to oppose Governor Walker's plan and they have asked me to seek a solution. Statewide public opinion polls indicate that over 67% of the public strongly disapprove of his proposal.
Today marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, a holiday rooted in the American Women’s Suffrage Movement and intended to raise awareness and celebrate the economic, social and political achievements of women across the globe.
Citizens from around the state have taken the first steps by filing recall papers against key Republican Senators who stood with Scott Walker and pushed his partisan power grab that will strip thousands of middle class teachers, nurses, librarians and other workers of their right to collective bargaining. And we have now learned that their disastrous budget that will cut hundreds of millions from our schools and universities.
Wisconsinites have already turned out in record numbers, tens of thousands from all over the state, to stand up for working families and to tell Scott Walker that his divisive power grab is just not the Wisconsin way.
