FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Forward Together Wisconsin coalition will Stand Together to Challenge Injustice and Regressive Public Policies during a Moral Week of Action at the Wisconsin State Capitol  

Other States Are Holding Similar Campaigns across Nation

Madison, WI –The statewide coalition of religious, social justice and labor organizations, Forward Together Wisconsin, is mobilizing for a Moral Week of Action at the Wisconsin State Capitol from August 21–28 to stand up against the flood of regressive social policies pushed and passed by legislators in the past two years.

Across the nation, coalitions in other states will stand in solidarity with the Moral Week of Action by undertaking similar campaigns at their legislative houses to protest extremist lawmakers who champion laws that devastate the country’s most vulnerable communities.

“The policies and actions undertaken by the Wisconsin state legislature have set the stage for a path of pain and destruction that will be felt by the people of Wisconsin for years to come. Wisconsin, once a national leader in political reform and improving the human condition, has fallen short of the virtues of the Wisconsin Idea,” said Gregory Jones – NAACP Wisconsin State Political Action Chair.

Uppity Wisconsin and Drinking Liberally Eau Claire invite you to a special one-night showing of Citizen Koch in Eau Claire.

In this searing exposé on the state of democracy in America and the fracturing of the Republican Party, Academy Award®-nominated directors Carl Deal and Tia Lessin (Trouble the Water; co-producers of Fahrenheit 9/11 & Bowling for Columbine) follow the money behind the rise of the Tea Party. CITIZEN KOCH investigates the impact of unlimited, anonymous spending by corporations and billionaires on the electoral process, featuring stories of life-long Republicans whose loyalty is tested when their families become collateral damage in the GOP fight to take organized labor out at the knees. Alternately terrifying and funny, CITIZEN KOCH is an essential and powerful portrait of our political times.

Q&A after the showing with Mike McCabe and others.

This is a showing in association with Tugg Inc. We will need to sell a minimum number of tickets to the film in advance for the showing to take place.  You must buy your ticket in advance on-line to attend. Tickets are now on sale at Tugg.
