ACTION ALERTS from Building Unity - working toward a Just Budget in Wisconsin

Sign the ACLU petition to cancel student debt

Over 44 million Americans carry more than $1.7 trillion of student debt – preventing people from buying homes, starting businesses, saving for retirement, or even starting families. And no one is as burdened by student loan debt as Black people, Black women in particular. This is a direct result of systemic racism.

Tell the PSC to extend the utility shutoff moratorium - deadline April 2

On March 18, the Public Service Commission voted to allow the utility shutoff moratorium to expire on April 15. While the PSC assumes that the worst of the pandemic is over and those who have utility debt can find support to pay it off, a team of partners has been talking to residents in Milwaukee -- and hearing a very different story.

Sign the petition calling on Biden to restore and rejoin the Iran deal.

Two months into the Biden administration, the fate of the Iran deal remains uncertain. Rather than abide by his campaign promise to return the U.S. to the Iran nuclear deal, the Biden administration has done little to reverse Trump's failed "maximum pressure" policy that imposed crushing sanctions on a nation of 83 million people amidst a global pandemic. The longer Iran and the U.S. remain in a political deadlock, the greater the risk of escalating tensions in the Middle East, and irreparable harm to the road to diplomacy.

Sign On! Support Sustainable Ag and a Real Climate Solutions: Oppose Growing Climate Solutions Act

Letters and phone calls needed now to withdraw Wisconsin’s Chequamegon-Nicolet Forest from metallic sulfide mining

Members of the House Natural Resources Committee and the Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources are working on legislation to withdraw portions of the forests and wilderness areas in states they represent from potential mining activity. The forests and wilderness areas in Wisconsin are not included in any of the eight or more Bills going through Congress – they should be.

We Stand with Meriter Nurse - Worker Justice WI

As you may have seen in the news, SEIU nurses at Meriter Hospital in Madison may be going on strike beginning March 24 if Meriter refuses to come to an agreement that allows nurses heal and better serve their patients. Their requests are more than reasonable: sufficient time off to rest and recover, just compensation when they pick up extra shifts during their days off, fair across the board raises, and a meaningful voice in decisions during this pandemic and any future public health emergencies.
