Weekend of Action: Aug 8-9

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin continues to build up its field program and we've got a new organizer whose whole job is turning Barron County blue! Everybody, meet Will Zolecki...

Hey Barron County Democrats,
My name is Will Zolecki and I am the new field organizer for the Coordinated Presidential & State Campaign with the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. We are officially 3 months away from the general election on November 3rd - I think we can all agree that it could not come soon enough!
Even more pressing, Wisconsin's Primary election takes place next Tues 8/11. I'm organizing a group of volunteers to phonebank from home calling folks right here in Barron County this Sat 8/8 & Sun 8/9, to ensure that we all have safe plans to vote for John Ellenson and Tricia Zunker on August 11th. With the COVID-19 spike over this last week, I think we can all agree that keeping our community safe is more important than ever! Below are links to sign up for a shift next weekend.
Sign up to help:
Sat, Aug 8 (9am-8pm) or Sun, Aug 9 (Noon-8pm)

Feel free to email me at william.zolecki@2020victory.com if you have any questions or concerns!

Exactly 155 years ago on June 19, 1865 nearly two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued the last group of enslaved people learned of their freedom. This day marked the ultimate freedom of the last slaves. June 19th, (Juneteenth) is now celebrated as "Freedom Day". Our country has come a long way since 1865 but there is clearly far more to be done. It may be a difficult road ahead, but we are confident that we can make a difference by standing together.

If you go... please wear a mask and maintain social distancing and hand hygiene.

All are welcome and encouraged to come and please invite your All friends and family members!

Tues 6/16 - Trevor Noah on Institutional Racism

Tuesday Conversations: Trevor Noah on Institutional Racism

Please join us by Zoom for the second of our informal “socially distanced” conversations. We’ll have two sessions on Tuesday, June 16, at 10am and a repeat at 5pm. Click here to RSVP.
(We’ll send out an invite to ZOOM a few minutes before the events.)

Trevor Noah has an online statement about Institutional racism that we’ll use for our focus for our discussion. It’s well worth the 15 minutes to watch it in preparation for the conversation. Watch it here or on YouTube:

We'll also have more of a regular party meeting on Thurs 6/18 at 7:00pm (also via Zoom).

We'll be joined by guest speakers Tricia Zunker and John Ellenson.

Like our Tuesday Conversations, please RSVP ahead of time here and we'll send you an invite shortly before the meeting starts. (Yes, it's the same RSVP form we're using for Tuesdays.)
