Action Kit: Transportation Organizing

Posted on January 25, 2017 at 7:05 PM
Bypass opponent, please look these materials over and consider signing the petition. There are many groups fighting wasteful and environmentally destructive highway projects. We can and should work together. This is a good time to call your legislators and ask them to stop building new highways like the West Waukesha Bypass. In the mean time, our Bypass Federal Lawsuit continues. Our lawyers have filed our Opening Brief and the court just received the DOT's Brief. It's more of the same and simply repeats all of the DOT's previous claims. Our case is very strong. We will be asking for your help soon. The Judge will be hearing our case and we will want to get as many people to attend to support our cause. THIS WILL BE VERY IMPORTANT! I will e-mail you the date and time as soon as we hear. The case will be heard in Milwaukee. Allen Stasiewski, Coalition Opposed to the West Waukesha Bypass and WEAL Hello Transportation Organizers, and happy New Year! As you heard at the Arrive Together summit on December 3rd, transportation is about to take center stage in Wisconsin politics. This month, the state legislature will begin debating the two-year transportation budget �?? a ripe opportunity for change. If we want a transportation system that works for everyone in Wisconsin, we all have to speak up. To show grassroots support across the state, we need your help. That�??s why we're excited to share with you an action kit that will let you help push for change �?? no matter how much time you have. Whether all you can do is sign our online petition and forward it to a friend, or you�??d like to build a coalition in your hometown and build far-reaching support, this action kit has everything you need. · Petitions o There�??s no better way to show widespread support than through many, many petition signatures. Please take a moment to complete our online petition ( so we can tell your elected officials you care about a responsible transportation budget that works for everyone. And please forward it to your family and friends! o If you�??d like to hold a petition drive to gather written petition signatures from your friends, family, neighbors, church congregation or organizations you know, send us a message to [email protected] and we�??ll mail you postcard petitions. Alternatively, you can use the paper petition form attached. · Talking Points for Contacting to Your Legislator o Calling your legislators takes no more than a minute, but it�??s one of the most effective ways to show them that their constituents care about an issue and are watching.

What works well and what doesn�??t? Please take a moment to fill out this personal transportation survey either online ( or on paper �?? and please get as many people you know to complete it as well, either by forwarding the survey link or giving them a printed copy! o Wisconsin�??s economy depends on people being able to get to work �?? but without good public transit connections, too many workers are being left behind, and employers�?? positions aren�??t being filled.
