The Resistance

"The Resistance" was articulated by Mike Basford, the Chair of the Dane County Democratic Party at the Party's general membership meeting on Wednesday February 9, 2017. The stated purpose is to channel the energy of other resistance movements into political action to elect progressive candidates at all levels of government in Dane County. Mr. Basford did indicate in a meeting of Progressive Partners that he did seek to increase the paying membership of the Democratic Party, so since the Wisconsin Grassroots Network is OFFICIALLY non-partisan, we are not endorsing this avenue.

However, if someone has been voting Democratic for years, and wishes to influence the selection of future candidates or planks in the platforms they run on, it is impossible to do that from outside of the Party structure.
