Milwaukee County Democrats meet on the third Monday each month to discuss party business, hear speakers on current topics, pass resolutions, and network with other progressives.
Join us this month as we welcome Scot Ross, Executive Director of One Wisconsin Now.
In July, Judge Peterson issued a ruling in One Wisconsin Institute et. al. v. Thomsen et. al. that invalidated numerous restrictions on voting, including prohibiting municipalities from offering evening and weekend voting and imposing severe limits on the number of days for early voting.
Peterson also found the state was unconstitutionally administering the voter ID law but was precluded from overturning it by higher court rulings. He wrote that “The evidence in this case casts doubt on the notion that voter ID laws foster integrity and confidence” and that the “… voter ID law is a cure worse than the disease.” Peterson further singled out the ID petition process for legal voters with extenuating circumstances to get an ID necessary to vote as discriminating against minorities.
We will also be announcing the launch of our new program, MKE Dems Care. Each month we will be highlighting different non-profits for our members and friends to engage with. Beginning March 1st, the first organization we will highlight will be Diaconia Connections.
