About Wisconsin Grassroots Network

and Its Task Force



The Wisconsin Grassroots Network is a coalition of autonomous grassroots groups, their regional  affiliates, allied organizations, and Wisconsin Grassroots Network Associate Members. 

All these individuals, groups and organizations are connected by the Core Values of fairness, honesty, responsibility, and compassion.  They are also connected through the Principles for All Americans.  These values and principles are implemented in communities by individuals and groups who learn and work on issues and projects of mutual interest.



The WGN Task Force (WGNTF) meets weekly in person and/or by conference call. We are a grassroots group, whose mission, with the help of our partners, nurtures the statewide grassroots movement.

To develop and maintain the link between groups, WGNTF:

  • Facilitates periodic statewide symposiums to bring together grassroots group members from around the state.

  • Facilitates networking through fostering regional meetings of grassroots group members.

  • Grows the "connective tissue" between the grassroots groups by providing:

    • This website.

    • Work Groups that coordinate related projects and activities by group members from around the state.

    • Blogs to facilitate communication between WGN members.

    • Dissemination of information regarding various organizations’ events through an email network.  This is accomplished by the website's calendar.  Also, organizations can get a message out by the use of a centralized email broadcast that is sent to the affiliated WGN groups and or allies.  The advantage to this approach is that people are more likely to pay attention to an email that is generated by a group they are affiliated with.

  • Presents an annual Grassroots Festival that is attended by more than 250 progressives and features breakout sessions dealing with numerous issues, political dialog, and group development.
