Dear Wisconsin Green friends,
Wisconsin is a special place - home to a proud progressive tradition that earned it the nickname "the laboratory of democracy".
And we saw that that progressive tradition is alive and well, after hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites took to the streets to defend your state from a ruthless corporate-backed assault on your workers' rights, environment and schools.
What does Wisconsin need now? A fearless progressive movement to continue the fight and reclaim the promise of democracy - from the grassroots up. Wisconsin needs the Green Party as the vehicle for this fight.
And the Green Party needs Wisconsin. Your struggles are the struggles of the nation. The spirit of "Fighting Bob" La Follette lives on in your work. Your courage is a model for the nation.
That's why I'm excited to join you for the Wisconsin Green Party Summer Gathering in Oshkosh on Saturday, June 29th.
