The Wisconsin Green Party will hold our 2023 Spring Gathering state membership meeting on Saturday May 20, 2023.
The theme of this gathering will be "Housing is a human right" and we will have discussions on the critical issue of housing and its many dimensions, including affordability, sustainability, homelessness, and more.
The "Housing is a Human Right" discussion will feature guests including Madison Common Council members Marsha Rummel, Juliana Bennett, and John W. Duncan, as well as Shorewood Trustee candidate Sam Harshner.
This gathering will be held virtually via Zoom. Members will be sent information about how to join the gathering online after they RSVP on this webpage.
In addition to our discussion on housing and updates from WIGP officers, committees, and local chapters, we will discuss proposed changes to WIGP bylaws. A summary of these proposed changes is that in situations where the party membership votes on decisions, voting would be conducted online and would be open to all dues-paying members in good standing, as opposed to just those members present at a particular meeting. You can read the full text of the proposed bylaws changes in the WIGP Spring 2023 newsletter.
As a WIGP membership meeting, all dues-paying WIGP members in good standing will be eligible to participate.
You can become a dues-paying member of the WIGP or renew your membership at https://www.wisconsingreenparty.org/contribute
