bernie-sandersGroup inspired by Bernie campaign success hopes to build a progressive political revolution and take power back from the establishment and the billionaire class.

GREEN BAY - Senator Bernie Sanders won the Wisconsin Democratic Presidential Primary last year, thanks in part to a huge turnout by Progressives who believed his message "that change happens from the bottom up." The campaign launched a political revolution, and now a group of his supporters are trying to turn it into a movement.

The national group, "Our Revolution", a 501(c)(4) organization based in Washington, is helping to carry out the legacy of Bernie's campaign. They hope to start "Our Wisconsin Revolution" by kicking off a series of organizing meetings across the state during the next several weeks.

According to group spokesperson Maxwell Love, the plan is to hold regional meetings all across Wisconsin to engage people who want to build the political revolution, putting forward the vision, hearing what people have to say to strengthen the approach, and to develop their program. Afterword, they plan to build local chapters and hold a founding convening in early spring to formally launch Our Wisconsin Revolution.

The goals of the group include;

  1. To build the political revolution and take power back from the establishment and the billionaire class. Fundamental change starts from the grassroots — that means all of us.
  2. Build a powerful organization, Our Wisconsin Revolution. Elect our own to office and fight for Bernie’s agenda at the local, state and federal levels.

Wisconsin deserves a grassroots group created by the people, for the people. Join now and commit for the long haul.
