Common Ground’s Education Initiative Kicks Off

On Monday February 28th, over 500 Common Ground members, concerned about looming budget cuts to school funding, gathered to call for a meeting Governor Walker and Senator Alberta Darling to discuss how we can work together to deal with these cuts in a way that won’t sacrifice the quality education of our children.

Hundreds of members committed to meeting over the next 3 weeks in small groups – called Listening Sessions – to put together ideas about how to deal with these cuts.

We will gather again on Monday March 21st to bring our ideas and talk about next steps.

If you are interested in attending one of these Listening Sessions, please join us. We also encourage you to hold your own listening sessions at your organizations. We’ll provide training on how to conduct these sessions. See below for details.

If you have questions, please feel free to send us an email
