Nobody is Above the Law Rally in Viroqua tonight!

Show your support for impeachment and make your voices heard.

Be part of a massive, grassroots effort to ensure Congress holds Donald Trump accountable for using military aid to pressure Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 elections. Demand that the House of Representatives fulfills its constitutional duty by impeaching Donald Trump and that the Senate remove him from office for attempting to rig the 2020 elections. Congress must show that no one—including the criminal in the White House—is above the law.

Join in a nationwide mobilization on the eve of this historic vote. For more info, visit https://act.moveon.org/event/impeach-and-remove-attend/search/

Where: Corner of Jefferson and Main streets, Viroqua.

When: 4:30-6pm TODAY.

Bring a sign and a thermos with a hot beverage! Free signs are available to print here: https://www.impeach.org/survey/impeach-and-remove-materials/?logo=

Sunday Nov. 3rd

Vernon County Dems are looking for volunteers to get involved with our Canvassing Days of Action on November 2nd and 3rd. It's a great opportunity to talk to your neighbors and find out what issues are important to them, and what they would like to see fixed on the local, state and federal level.

This canvass program is NOT to endorse a candidate or campaign. The purpose is to find out how people in our community are feeling. We want to make sure that people in our area know that their voice matters, and most importantly, we want them to be heard.

Canvass shifts are available from 9AM-12PM and 12PM-3PM on Saturday November 2 and Sunday November 3. (Don't worry - shifts will be done before the Packers game starts on Sunday!) Saturday Viroqua shifts will meet at the LINK at the listed time (between McIntosh Memorial Library and WTC). Sunday Viroqua shifts will meet in the dining area at the Viroqua Food Coop, 609 N. Main St. Please be on time!!!

Sign up to help here:

Sat. Nov. 2

Sun. Nov. 3

Training will be provided, as well as coffee and snacks. If you're not comfortable going door to door, you can still get involved by being a driver, doing data entry, or by simply walking along with another canvasser.

Canvassing is one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to get involved in your community. You might even call it fun! We hope you can join us to help make sure community voices are heard, and to take action towards 2020! #1Year2Win #WisDems
