Western Wisconsin Votes inspires reciprocal conversations through active listening and storytelling to empower community members and mobilize voters to create a community that is equitable, fair, and just.

Through community building and organizing, we are laying the groundwork for lasting political change in Wisconsin.

Dunn County is one of 206 counties nationwide identified as key to Democratic victory. There were 15,600 eligible voters in Dunn County and 16,467 eligible voters in St. Croix County who did not vote in 2016. Our project focused on new and infrequent voters.

Community Building

Our focus on community building at Western Wisconsin Votes will help infrequent voters become committed voters who will turn out each year.

Voter Support

By following up with voter support we help community members safely overcome barriers to voting and have access to vote by mail.

Story Telling

Our storytelling approach helps increase empathy and allows people who may be new or infrequent voters to realize that voting is a gift to people they love.

The stories we tell about our lives shape what we’re able to imagine, and what we can imagine determines what we can do. My job is to change the stories we tell and help us imagine a world where greed has no power, the earth is cherished and all people get to live safe and satisfying lives. Because once we truly imagine it, the pull to create it becomes irresistible.
