Affordable health care. Well-funded public schools. Clean drinking water. A living wage. Affordable higher education. These are all things that most, if not all, Wisconsinites want. Yet ultra-conservatives in our state legislature continue to do little or nothing to address these issues, and repeatedly tell us that our state is broke – that there just isn't enough money to invest in the things that help our communities thrive. As you will discover in our presentation of A Wisconsin Budget for All, they are lying.
Wisconsin is richer than it ever has been, and we actually have enough revenue to make major investments in education, health and jobs for our communities. Join us for A Wisconsin Budget for All to find out how we can allocate state funds to put Wisconsin's progressive values in action and what you can do to make that happen.
A Wisconsin Budget for All is a collaborative alternative budget document created by a coalition of community and policy nonprofit organizations in order to change the way Wisconsinites look at state budgets and to find the funding needed to ensure that our communities thrive. Partner organizations include Citizen Action of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families, WISDOM, the Brico Fund, Feeding Wisconsin and more.
