Who We Are

What is Grassroots South Shore?

Grassroots South Shore is a progressive political organization supporting candidates, policy proposals and initiatives that share our values. Our goal is to organize people in the south shore of Milwaukee County to establish a unified approach to making our society more equal, tolerant and engaged. We are a volunteer group that believes in representing the views of our members and supporters. Regular membership meetings are 6pm to 8pm on the first Wednesday of each month at the Cudahy Family Library, 3500 Library Ave, Cudahy, WI 53110. The committee is open to anyone to join who shares our values.
Here are a few principle beliefs:
• Equal opportunity in education, housing, transportation, health care, and employment and for all citizens to share in our nation’s prosperity.
• Fair and progressive taxes on individuals and corporations.
• Ensuring that all citizens can vote without needless restrictive rules such as Voter ID.
• Limits to campaign spending.
• Ensuring every woman’s right to choose and maintain control of her reproductive freedom.
• Maintaining a livable environment that recognizes the threat of man-made global warming.
• Ensuring that workers have the right to organize and form unions and thus have a voice in their workplace.
• The importance of respecting the rights of all citizens and ensure that they are not discriminated against due to their race, religion, sexual preference or national origin.

The recent election is a wake up call on the challenges America, Wisconsin and Milwaukee faces to provide a livable world. We now face a minority president who feigns a majority to turn back the social progress Americans made over the past 70 years and ignore the very real environmental and economic challenges of our time. Together, we can come to represent the local voice of local progressives.
