Wisconsin Is Under Assault

Conservative interests have captured our courts, trying to take away freedoms from anyone who does not look like them.

They are attempting to dismantle the values Wisconsinites hold dear.

Together, we can fight

their litigation agenda by:

N

protecting voting rights, access to the polls, and the fair administration of elections.

N

enforcing state constitutional requirements and separation of powers.

N

advancing fair legislative districts and resisting efforts to gerrymander Wisconsin again.

N

resisting current efforts to revive long-discredited legal doctrines.
