Dane County LWV presents this forum to discuss clean energy.
Wisconsin’s aging energy systems send approximately $14.4 billion out of our state each year to purchase fossil fuels. That money can be redirected for instate use when WI shifts to renewable energy sources and efficiency upgrades. But WI taxpayers will benefit most if the multi-pronged transition is designed to ensure a win-win outcome for all rather than a “winner take all.” Guest speakers will sketch out our energy transformation from a full palette of possibilities, addressing key questions: What are the barriers to progress? Who is training the workforce for clean energy jobs? What’s in it for rural communities? How can we ensure benefits are shared evenhandedly by all and protect our natural world? And how do system-wide energy efficiencies get buy-in from local governments and consumers?

With the recent unprecedented violent attempt to overturn the results of a presidential election, this topic takes on a new sense of urgency. What can be done to convince the 40% of Americans who believe the election was stolen from President Trump that our elections are secure? Professor David Canon, Ph.D. of UW Madison will talk about the myth of systemic voter fraud and the reality of the integrity of the voting process. It is free, with a suggested donation of $10 in lieu of a registration fee. Next year we plan an in-person luncheon. As always, elected public officials and candidates for public office are encouraged to take the opportunity to introduce themselves if they register by January 30.

The foundational principle of our democracy is the notion of "one person, one vote," however achieving this vision is no simple feat. At least once every 10 years, states use data gathered during the Census to revisit (and usually redraw) their district maps to meet strict requirements for population equality and voting rights protections. This process is called redistricting and it impacts where and who falls within a district. While the process can be complex and the ramifications tremendous, there are simple engagement strategies nonprofit organizations like yours can adopt to ensure the fair representation of the community you serve.
Join us on Thursday February 18, at 2pm ET/11am PT for our webinar ‘Redistricting: What it means and the role of Nonprofits,‘ as we aim to demystify redistricting, and share some of those engagement strategies. Joining us will be guest speakers, Professor Justin Levitt of Loyola Law School, whose website ‘All About Redistricting‘ is an indispensable resource for understanding how the process works in each state; and Mariana Martinez, Director of Civic Engagement Initiatives, at the Michigan Nonprofits Association.
Following this webinar, all RSVPs will receive the slides and recording in an email.
