In WI, Republicans—who lost in Nov—are trying to undermine democracy by stripping power from the incoming Dem governor & AG (see thread). Time is SHORT. Here's what you can do...

Want to fight the Republican power grab in Wisconsin? No matter where you are, you can call WI voters in key areas to tell them what's going on and urge them to call their state senators, 9am-10pm CT. Volunteers needed!
If you're in Milwaukee, head to the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO at 6333 W Bluemound Rd on Mon 10/3 & Tue 10/4 from 10a to 7p to join the in-person phone bank & call voters in key districts. When people hear what's happening, they're outraged. Go! Go!
If you're in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin legislative hotline is open 8:15a-4:45p at 608-266-9960. Call and tell your state Senators to OPPOSE the lame duck legislation. Reports suggest multiple R senators feel conflicted already. Light up their phone lines!
If it's after 4:45pm, the legislative hotline is closed (thanks for that, Republicans)—but you can still call your state legislators directly. Use Or @resistbot: just text "state" to 50409 (or DM or Facebook Message "state" to @resistbot), supply your address, and boom.
If you're near Madison, go to the Capitol at 12:30pm today—through the afternoon, likely into the night—for the Joint Finance Committee hearing. You can get in line to give your own testimony. Let's fill the room, folks. I'll see you there.
Tonight in Madison at 5:30pm: #RespectMyVote rally on the State Street steps of the Wisconsin State Capitol. Terrific speaker lineup (I'm proud to be part of it)—the key moment to show that WI rejects the undermining of our democracy. Invite friends on FB!…
Journalists: at 10:30am CT/11:30am ET, join the press call hosted by @onewisconsinnow—which sued and defeated previous GOP attempts to curtail early voting in Wisconsin. Everyone else: follow them on Twitter, and @rossacrosswi & @analieseeicher, to stay updated.
Another way to help stop the #WIpowergrab: chip in a few bucks for @onewisconsinnow, which is right at the forefront of the fight here.…
