The Remarkable Nettie McGee




Mid-August we lost Nettie McGee, one of the most dedicated and passionate activists in Wisconsin. Nettie’s was a longtime OWR (Our Wisconsin Revolution) member and a dedicated volunteer that fought for environmental, social, and economic justice her entire life. When I first met Nettie she was at a rally fighting for increased wages for low wage workers at an event put on by the Poor People’s Campaign. She was someone who was willing to put herself on line to fight for the rights of others. It was that quality that made Nettie a special and caring individual. In her passing we must continue her fight for justice in the state of Wisconsin. We ask that you join us in making a donation to Nettie funeral services. Rest in power Nettie, you were one fierce warrior.
