It’s the 11th hour in Wisconsin, and we need your help. Earlier this year, Tea Party Governor Scott Walker and his Republican legislature adopted anti-worker legislation that strips away fundamental rights for teachers and other public employees.
Over the past six months, many Young Democrats responded by taking part in historic demonstrations at the state capitol in Madison. Others assisted with gathering 150,000 signatures to recall Republican lawmakers who supported Governor Walker’s extreme agenda.
If you were waiting for the right moment to help out, it’s now. Tomorrow is Election Day in Wisconsin and we need volunteers from across the country to call voters and remind them to support Democrats in two key districts.
Help us call Wisconsin voters tonight and tomorrow
Thirty year-old State Senator Chris Larson (D), one of the members of the “Wisconsin 14” who left the state in an attempt to stop Governor Walker’s proposal, spoke at the YDA National Convention last month in Louisville. He asked our generation to stand as the last line of defense against Republican officials who have made it their mission to dismantle the middle class.
If you can spend just 60 minutes on the phone, it will make a huge difference. It’s easy to sign up. You will need to create a user name and password, and a call script will be provided for you.

One thing is clear. The struggle in Wisconsin has motivated young people across the country to take action. Let’s prove to the Republican establishment that their overreach has consequences. Thanks for your help.
