Kelda Roys touted a vision for Wisconsin that includes free two-year college and 12 weeks of paid universal family leave.

It’s part of a prescription for the state she argues will lead to fairness and opportunity for Wisconsin’s future generations.

“Every election is about the future, this year so much hangs in the balance,” Roys said. “[It’s] time to build the world our kids deserve.”

Roys, who opened her speech with an account of her three-year-old daughter rehearsing an active shooter drill, called for responsible gun control laws to create a world where children may thrive in. 

On education, Roys demanded an end to the state’s private voucher program, underscoring that public money belongs in public schools.

She also called for reinvesting in the UW System, allowing for refinancing of student loans and bringing back collective bargaining.
