WISCONSIN — The general election campaign in Wisconsin to beat Donald Trump’s agenda kicked off a new phase today, with a coalition of labor unions, progressive organizations and state elected officials announcing the launch of Wisconsin Organizing Together. The organization will be heavily focused on digital organizing, work around the upcoming Supreme Court election and key school funding referenda on the April 7, 2020 ballot. 

The campaign is community-based and volunteer-driven, designed to get the Democratic infrastructure running earlier than ever before, and to energize the grassroots in battleground states prior to a nominee being chosen. The campaign is a federally-independent organizing effort to beat Donald Trump’s agenda, and will hire organizers and recruit volunteers across six battleground states — Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
