MADISON - Instead of acting to reduce gun violence, Republicans want to give guns to teachers. As a lifelong educator, I can say without any hesitation that I’d rather go to jail than arm teachers in our schools.

More guns will increase the danger for our kids, not reduce it.

That’s why I’m demanding Governor Walker reject more guns in schools and invest $50 million to provide training to reduce school violence and hire both qualified school counselors and security guards.

I can’t do it alone, though, Friends. I need you to click here and join me to demand that Walker reject arming teachers.


We need to follow the lead of young people in Florida and across America. Their inspiring call to action for commonsense gun safety measures represents a change in the American conscience. We need to continue to push for reform that gets to the root of the problem.

Conducting universal background checks, eliminating bump stocks and reinstating waiting periods are measures both gun owners and non-gun owners widely support.

Add your name here to join me in demanding Walker invest in real school security, not the arming of teachers.

Every classroom should be safe. Every teacher should feel safe. Every student should feel safe.

voter-us-electionsMADISON - The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin is looking for dedicated volunteers to observe what is happening on the ground on Election Day, so we can improve the election process and empower more voters.

We're already coordinating our efforts to observe the Spring Election on April 3, 2018.

We would love it if you or someone you know would consider volunteering with us this year as an Election Observer.

Our focus for the Spring Election will be on:

  1. Ensuring there is no disenfranchisement
  2. Monitoring the voter experience - including registration and showing ID
  3. Tracking any problems that can be fixed for the fall elections

If you're interested in volunteering for the April election, let us know by filling out our volunteer form. That'll make sure we have the most up to date information to get in contact with you and to use when assigning polling places.

If you have any questions about volunteering, please do not hesitate to reach out. You can contact Eileen Newcomer, Voter Education Coordinator at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or at (608)256-0827.
