Wisconsin is facing unprecedented threats to its drinking water and its public lands. Lead contaminates drinking water systems across the state – children are being poisoned in their own schools and homes. Manure pollution is forcing residents to haul water from miles away in order to drink and bathe. Our state parks – economic engines and our primary point of entry to the outdoors – are threatened by lack of support and privatization.
WHEN: Wednesday, March 29th, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
WHERE: Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center, Exhibition Hall A, 1 John Nolen Drive; and the State Capitol
Morning: The Monona Terrace with beautiful Lake Monona as a backdrop. At 9 a.m. attendees will be registering for the event. Buses from western and northeastern Wisconsin will be unloading about 9:15 a.m. Presentation and keynote speakers begin at 10 a.m. Afternoon: citizens meeting with legislators, staging area in the Capitol rotunda.
