About Building Unity and the Democracy Tour:
Humanity is facing challenging times. The realities of war, widespread violence, extreme polarization, social unrest, racism, severe economic disparities, pandemics, environmental degradation, resource depletion, the erosion of freedom and democracy, and the climate emergency loom before us with no clear signs of improvement. Too many people are suffering and our youth are living with the knowledge that a safe and livable future for them is uncertain.
Building Unity is a nonpartisan, multi-organizational project working to build the unity needed for a movement that will boldly address these existential threats. We are doing all that we can to help elect leaders who will act for a just and livable future. Today, the “top 1%” – own more of our nation’s wealth than the “bottom 90%!” The influence of big money in our political system is alarming and unacceptable. These facts and the realities of the climate emergency require us to make changes to counter the influence of big money that the resource extraction, fossil fuel, weapons industries and large corporations have on our political and economic systems. The Democracy Tour seeks to engage and inspire voters around Wisconsin to unite and participate in the process of forming a more perfect union and a government that is truly representative of and responsive to the priorities and the needs of the people.
Time is running out. We must act swiftly. In this extremely important election year, we must make sure that everyone who shares our hopes and dreams, votes! Towards this goal the Democracy Tour will help Wisconsin communities to mobilize and activate voters, and share information about important issues and opportunities to make a difference.
Each of the Democracy Tour Tour Stop Events will be as unique as the communities and partners that are hosting them. You can find information about each of the Tour Stop Event as it becomes available at www.facebook.com/buildingunitywi/events
