We organize a free public forum, generally monthly. Join us to listen and discuss current issues with our knowledgeable speakers.

Wednesday, July 8th

Rock County Progressives Present an Educational Forum

 

 

Matt Rothschild

on the

Wisconsin

Democracy

Campaign

 

 

FYI:

  • The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign website
  • This is the first time we've had Matt since he's was named director of the WDC, a position formerly held by Mike McCabe
  • The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign is a homegrown network of citizens fighting government corruption and working for fair elections, judicial integrity, media democracy, and open and transparent government. The Democracy Campaign pursues these objectives through research, citizen education, community outreach, coalition building and direct advocacy.
  • WDC was founded in 1995 as a nonprofit, independent coalition of individuals and groups responding to the growing dominance of special interest money in the campaigns of state lawmakers. The Democracy Campaign is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and gifts to WDC are fully tax deductible.
  • “Rothschild was the longtime editor and publisher of The Progressive magazine, where campaign finance reform, clean elections and real democracy have been priorities since the days of the publication’s founder Fighting Bob La Follette.”

This mural is located in Beloit, near 500 Pleasent St., on the side of the old Ironworks building facing the Rock River.
It is a great tribute to the laborers of the 20th century.
