Grassroots Waukesha County was founded in the summer of 2013 as a partnership with United Wisconsin and Move to Amend. Together we obtained 4200 signatures in 54 days to a 'move to amend' referendum on the ballot in the City of Waukesha. The referendum passed with an overwhelming margin in 2014.
Today the mission of Grassroots Waukesha is to advocate for Democracy, Social Justice and the Environment within Waukesha County.
To fulfill our mission, we sponsor activities such as educational events to raise awareness of important issues, participate in public demonstrations, write letters to the editor, attend town halls, testify at public hearings, and contact our local officials.
To be more effective, we partner with other grassroots and advocacy groups whenever possible.
