Million Person Unity March Sheboygan County

Here is a little information on today’s (Saturday, January 21st) Sheboygan march which will start at 11 a.m at Fountain Park in Sheboygan and also in Plymouth which will start at 1 p.m. at Veterans Park.

Sheboygan

This march is in unity with the other Million Woman Marches, and it is not just about women. It is about everyone: women, men, girls, boys, people of all ages, races, ethnicities, and backgrounds. We want to join together to stand up for the rights of women, workers, seniors, and youth; public education, environmental protection, and peace and justice for all.

At 11 a.m. we’ll meet at the northeast corner of Fountain Park, at 8th Street and Erie Ave. There is a 40% chance it will be raining. Dress accordingly! See you soon as we come together to march FOR education, the environment, the rights of ALL people, decent and affordable healthcare, peace, justice, and sustainability.

Plymouth

In Plymouth, our peaceful march, starting at 1 p.m., will begin at Veterans Memorial Park (603 E Mill St.), travel east to Fairview Ave, continue on the south side of Eastern to the intersection with North Ave, and then circle back to Veterans Park. The same rules apply in Plymouth as Sheboygan where we must follow all pedestrian rules including no blocking of car or other foot traffic and staying two abreast. Looking forward to marching with you for justice and equity for all!

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Statement on Election Results

The following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning in light of Tuesday’s election results:

“Like so many of you, I am disappointed by Tuesday’s results.  However, while these were not the results we hoped for, the people have spoken, and now it is up to us to come together to move our state and our nation forward.

“Despite our disappointment, we must not get discouraged and walk away from the process. We must unite and work for the American dream we all believe in.

“As Democrats, we will forge onward and continue to fight for hard-working men and women who want a fair shot to get ahead. We will continue to advocate for future generations of Americans who deserve the opportunity to live the American dream. And, in an election year marked by divisiveness and hate, we will continue to stand up for inclusiveness and respect for all Americans no matter their race, color, or creed.

“We will also work to hold President-Elect Trump accountable to the people who elected him. Like many, we are deeply concerned that his policies will be harmful to the millions of hardworking Americans who most need help in these challenging times.

“I want to thank all of the fantastic Democratic candidates who had the courage and vision to run for office in this election: From Hillary Clinton, to Russ Feingold, to our amazing candidates up and down the ballot.  Their passion and dedication was an inspiration to so many around this state.  Win or lose, we were proud to stand with each and every one of you. As Secretary Clinton said only moments ago, this loss hurts, but we must all continue to fight for what we believe in.  As Democrats, that’s exactly what we intend to do.”

You can Help Get Out The Vote on Tuesday

…and we need your help to make sure that Hillary Clinton, Russ Feingold, Sarah Lloyd, Rebecca Clarke, and Nanette Bulebosh win on November 8th!

In the words of Kyle Whelton, “We have one shot and I know that I don’t want to wake up on November 9th to a President-elect Trump wondering if there was anything more I could have done to win this election.”

We need your help for our GOTV efforts this weekend through November 8th, especially volunteers to canvass on the most important day of all, Election Day.

It’s not enough just to vote this year – we have to make sure every Democrat votes because there is just too much at stake. The last 4 days of the election is the most critical time for us to talk with voters. We will be talking to people who support Democrats, but typically do not vote.

We need to knock on every targeted door at least twice to make sure they go out and vote and we can’t do it without you. This is the easiest and most fun canvassing there is. All we are doing is telling people where their polling location is and what they need to vote.

Sign up to get out the vote at https://www.hillaryclinton.com/gotv/ or by contacting Kyle Whelton at [email protected] or (920) 627-9082 and let’s get Democrats elected!

Or if you find you have free time, just stop in at the Campaign Headquarters at 816 Erie Ave. in Sheboygan and volunteer!
