Tell Congress to defund ICE and CBP now - ACLU

The ACLU of Texas recently obtained documents from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) – the nation's largest federal law enforcement agency – that reveal it deployed federal agents and authorized the use of deadly force at George Floyd's burial.  This breaking news follows further disturbing reports of forced sterilizations, total disregard for COVID-19 precautions, and other abuses against people within ICE detention centers during the pandemic.

Safe Skies Clean Water is sponsoring an F-16 fighter jet noise survey

Your survey responses will be compiled and shared with you, the public, and officials from Madison, Dane County Board, County Airport and Truax Field. We hope the survey will have a high participation rate so that we can conclusively show to our community leaders, the Air Force and the Air National Guard that existing fighter jet noise is already undesirable and disruptive.

Voters Guide for Every Working Person - Dignity at Work Coalition

Wisconsin is in need of people to serve as paid poll workers for the Nov. 3 election.

If you're looking for a way to make an impact this election year, becoming a poll worker is one of the most vital roles you can play. Being a poll worker means helping people vote safely and ensuring as many people as possible can cast their ballot. Together, we will help the voices of our community be heard!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many veteran poll workers have to sit this one out, so we need younger citizens to step up! This is a great opportunity for high school and college students to get involved with the democratic process. 

COVID19 Mutual Aid Support, Offers and Resources

UPDATED OFTEN:  Times that are potentially scary require us to better support one another. In the same way that we bring casseroles to grieving families and baby clothes to celebrate newborns, we can come together as a community to help each other through this difficult time as well. An essential part of stopping the spread of coronavirus from overwhelming our hospital systems is voluntary self-isolation. However, isolation can be difficult without the support of your neighbors. This information will help us provide support to each other!

Our democracy is imperiled by the growing influence of money in politics, greatly compounded by voter suppression and partisan gerrymandering. For our democracy to work, it is essential for citizens to be registered, engaged, know that their vote counts, and have the information they need to vote and make informed decisions.
