WELCOME TO THE NEXT GENERATION OF DEMOCRATS
WHO ARE WE?
The High School Democrats of Wisconsin was founded in January 2017 following the surge of progressive activism that took place after November 8, 2016. Initially starting with just one chapter, the statewide organization soon grew to encompass multiple counties throughout Wisconsin and provided many high school students with voices and opportunities in politics.
2020 is a critical year for America, and for Wisconsin. While Biden was not the first choice for many young people, he is the only option to reinstate decency in the White House. On a state level, Wisconsinites face intense gerrymandering and voter suppression. Amidst a pandemic that has claimed almost 200,000 lives, demands for racial justice and fairness in policing, and the constant threat of climate change, our state legislature has not passed a bill in months. We need to rally behind candidates up and down the ballot, and demand action from our elected officials.
We want to mobilize as many high school students as we can across the state in our fight to flip Wisconsin blue. You can join an existing chapter or start your own through resources on this website and with the help of our Executive Board. Contact us if you have any questions or concerns about getting involved!
