Wisconsin residents to call on state and federal elected officials to move past partisan sparring and move forward together on critical issues facing their communities

MADISON, Wis.— TONIGHT, November 18, 2020 at 7:00 PM CT, a day after the county canvass has been completed and the recount petition period has passed, Opportunity Wisconsin, SEIU Healthcare Wisconsin, Progress North, BLOC, and A Better Wisconsin Together will be joined by U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin, Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes, and Wisconsinites across the state for a virtual town hall to discuss what’s at stake right now during the pandemic and call on lawmakers to focus on COVID relief and moving forward together, not partisan sparring.

This election season, despite the pandemic, an economic crisis, and deliberate barriers to silence the voices of marginalized communities, voters did their job and turned out in record numbers. Non-partisan election officials and community members did their jobs too by ensuring every step of the election process was transparent and secure.

Now, Badger State residents are pushing to ensure that their newly elected leaders care and govern for all Wisconsinites, and that starts by putting politics and the campaign behind us. Wisconsin faces its biggest coronavirus surge yet and we need our state and federal lawmakers to put the health and wellbeing of their constituents first. The voters decided and we need economic relief now.
