Wisconsin Legalization Coalition
The Wisconsin Legalization Coalition was founded in 2000 at the initiation of Voces de la Frontera. It aims to build statewide support, and coordinate with other national efforts, to secure just and comprehensive legalization for undocumented workers and their families living in the United States. It also seeks to provide accessible education regarding the existing rights of undocumented workers and current immigration law reform legislation, and to expose those entities that attempt to obtain monetary gain through fraudulent promises of securing legal status for undocumented immigrants.
WLC is affiliated with the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM).
Organizations which support the aims of the Wisconsin Legalization Coalition are invited to give a public endorsement.
Coalition for Safe Roads
The Coalition for Safe Roads is a broad coalition of law enforcement, dairy farmers, labor unions, faith leaders, and advocacy groups urging the Wisconsin State Legislature to introduce driver's cards for undocumented and legal immigrants who are currently unable to provide documentary proof of their status. The Coalition argues that only by testing and certifying all drivers can the safety of our roads and communities be maximised.
This campaign was relaunched by Voces de la Frontera in February 2009.
One Wisconsin Now
One Wisconsin Now, Inc. (OWN) is the beginning of a long-term effort to re-light the flame of Wisconsin's proud progressive tradition on public policy with a state-based plan to modernize and strengthen our state's progressive infrastructure, to build the common good, and to win the ideas and values debate in Wisconsin.
