Want To Reverse Citizens United? Here How You Can Help!

As the rest of the nation is passing referendum after referendum calling for the
Constitution to be amended so that Citizens United can no longer harm our country, we in Milwaukee County have not been so lucky.

We have a county executive emperor who thinks that referendums are like Facebook polls.  Unless they are red herring referendums to distract from his overreaching power grab.

Despite Abele's corruption, United Wisconsin, along with the Grassroots Tosa and Move to Amend, is still working to reverse Citizens United:
Across the state, the grassroots campaign to restore our democracy and reverse Citizens United is heating up, and United Wisconsin is leading the charge!  
United Wisconsin is kicking off petition drives to pass local referendums in cities and towns across Wisconsin, and is launching petition drives right now in Southeastern Wisconsin – starting with the City of Wauwatosa, followed by Shorewood and Whitefish Bay this July – and many more to come.  (Click here to email our organizer if you are interested in getting involved in the Shorewood/Whitefish Bay campaign.)
Each Saturday, United Wisconsin’s volunteer office located at 7028 W North Ave in Wauwatosa (Right next to Tosa Nails and Spa) is open from 10am to 4pm, and will be hosting door-to-door canvasses and petition signature gathering at stationary locations along with our partners Grassroots Tosa and Move To Amend-Milwaukee to collect the signatures needed to put the referendum on the ballot! 
We need people like you who care about stopping the takeover of our democracy by special interests to help us put Wauwatosa on record calling for the reversal of theCitizens United ruling, which gave corporations the same rights as people, and said that unlimited spending on elections is “free speech.”

The only way we can put an end to corporate rule is for YOU to take action. 
Sign up with us below at a day and time that works for you to meet at our volunteer office at 7028 W North Ave in Wauwatosa (Right next to Tosa Nails and Spa). We have all the supplies you need, and after a brief training, you will be out making the difference!

Be sure you stop by the Wauwatosa Public Library between 9:30am-4:30 Monday through Friday to sign the petition!
