Defend Democracy! Register & Vote!
All Hands On Deck! Starting the weekend of March 8th (International Women’s Day), Building Unity groups and partners will launch a 35-weekend tour calling on Wisconsin citizens to Defend Democracy – Register & Vote! The Building Unity Tour is a non-partisan family-friendly project to engage, inform, inspire and empower voters in the run-up to the 2020 elections. Plans are being made for stops in more than 70 communities around Wisconsin to encourage voters to register and vote in their local, State and national elections.
In a democracy, power doesn’t reside in Madison, Washington or in our institutions, but in the people. Reaching out across Wisconsin, for eight full months, we will listen, learn, share, and help each other fulfill our civic duty to vote. Most legs of our tour will be completed in one weekend day. It is time to rise up and vote our values of democracy, peace, sustainability, and justice for all. We are building unity and facing our global and local challenges – together.
We Need You!
