Indivisible Madison: Stop the Wisconsin GOP power grab

Indivisible Madison calls for people statewide to  ”Pack the Capitol” for the JFC Hearing on Mon., Dec. 3 at 12:30 pm – and the #RESPECTMYVOTE rally on Mon., Dec. 3 at 5:30pm

Wisconsin Republican leaders will not #RESPECTMYVOTE. These elected officials refuse to accept election results that saw Democrats take every statewide office.

A 141-page bill introduced in extraordinary session would consolidate power with the GOP-controlled legislature. It virtually overturns Wisconsin voters’ call for new leadership. This is nothing less than
a coup.

Indivisible Madison is leading the resistance to the GOP leaders’ proposals. They have called for voters from all over the state to pack the Capitol for the Joint Finance Committee (JFC) hearing on Monday, December 3, at 12:30pm. They also have organized the #RESPECTMYVOTE rally at 5:30pm the same day for voters to voice their objections to this power grab.

The Facebook rally event (https://www.facebook.com/events/2491983410817496/) has been shared 800 times as of this writing. 1.2K are going or interested. And a notice to pack the Capitol for the JFC hearing has been shared more than 400 times.

Twitter has been alive with the help of Ben Wikler – DC Director for MoveOn and a Madison, WI native. He has attracted a lot of national attention and he’s been invaluable advisor to Indivisible Madison. He’s heading from DC to Wisconsin to be at the hearing and rally.
