One Wisconsin Now is the beginning of a long-term effort to re-light the flame of Wisconsin's proud progressive tradition on public policy, to modernize and strengthen our state's progressive infrastructure, to build the common good, and to win the ideas and values debate in Wisconsin.
A Common Good Agenda for WisconsinWe are a new, citizen-based, grassroots effort that will empower the people of Wisconsin by creating a new and genuine dialogue that gives them a voice on the direction of our state’s public policy and access to the organizing and activism tools to affect real change. Our new website, onewisconsinnow.org has also launched a new blog, One Blog, a daily Forward Report on the news of the day, and a daily issue and public policy focus to advance citizen discussion, advocacy, and activism by building a bottom-up, progressive Echo Chamber.

Your engagement and support will help us find solutions to the challenges our state citizen’s face everyday and develop public policy proposals that reflect our shared Wisconsin values – Community, Opportunity, Shared Responsibility, Fairness and Freedom.
