Wisconsin - Move to Amend

Home | News | Events

Wisconsin has been home to several advocates and affiliates mobilizing over 5.8 million people across the Badger State.

Move to Amend has partnered with Wisconsin United to Amend -- a non-partisan, trans-ideological volunteer-based organization. It has succeeded in passing local resolutions and ballot initiatives across Wisconsin. In total, 3.3 million people (58% of Wisconsinites) live in jurisdictions that have called for the We the People Amendment, and the referenda pass with an average approval of 80%!

Communities in Support

Alongside hundreds of thousands of individuals have signed our Motion to Amend petition, there have been over 700 communities and states that have passed public resolutions, ordinances, and ballot initiatives supporting the We the People Amendment. Below is a list of resolutions that were passed by elected political bodies (i.e. state legislatures, or county/city/town/village councils), residents who voted at Town Hall meetings, or by voters following organized campaigns by Move to Amend supporters in Wisconsin.

Passing local resolutions in support of amending the constitution is a great way to educate the public and to send a strong signal to legislators that people care about these issues. Click here for information on how to organize a resolution campaign in your community!
