Citizen Action of Wisconsin

Citizen Action of Wisconsin organizes people to make Wisconsin a better place to live and work. Citizen Action employs an integrated strategy of grassroots organizing, public education, earned media, professional research, voter engagement, and political lobbying to advance progressive values and shape the public and political debate around health care, economic development, and consumer protection. Every year, Citizen Action generates hundreds of media stories, mobilizes thousands of citizens to participate in political advocacy, and engages hundreds of thousands of voters.

Citizen Action has over 42,000 individual members and 123,000 supporters. They come from all over Wisconsin, from each of our 99 state assembly districts and from all walks of life. They are rural and urban, young and old, lower, middle and upper income, male and female, multi-racial and have different faiths and political persuasions. Approximately 45% are Democrats, 34% Republicans and 17% independents.

  • Our members hear from us. We regularly communicate with our members, including newsletters, quarterly phone calls, and monthly email alerts to over 20,000 activists in our electronic, "e-activist" network.

  • Our members take action. In an average year, Citizen Action members generate over 6,000 letters, postcards, and telewires on our issues from our members to their elected officials.
