March from Milwaukee to Madison!

7 Mar

P.O.W.E.R. – People Organizing Wisconsin for Education and workers’ Rights

People Organizing Wisconsin for Education and workers’ Rights (P.O.W.E.R.) are Wisconsinites who support public education and collective bargaining rights for all workers. Inspired by the ideals of “Fighting Bob” La Follette, we are walking from Milwaukee to Madison to support the “Wisconsin Idea”. The century old “Wisconsin Idea” promotes equality by:

  • Building our collective economy
  • Advancing healthcare and medicine
  • Educating young and old and
  • Enhancing quality of life for all

The walk will begin on Friday, March 11 at 6AM at Riverside University High School (1615 E Locust St) in Milwaukee. The walk will be divided into three shifts:

  • Friday-Milwaukee to Concord  (est. 13 hours),
  • Saturday leaving at 8AM-Concord to Deerfield (est. 9 hours) and
  • Sunday leaving at 8AM-Deerfield to the Capitol building (est. 6 hours).

If you want to donate to POWER send us an email at power.wisconsin@gmail.com and tell us how much you want to donate and we will send you a request via PayPal.
