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 now provides many high school students with voices in politics and opportunities to make a difference in their communities, state, and country. 

We are high school students committed to making Wisconsin better for ourselves and future generations. We believe that healthcare is a basic human right. We believe that no student should go to school and have to worry about being shot. We believe that immediate climate justice is necessary to provide an inhabitable planet for ourselves and future generations. We believe that love is love and that people have the right to make their own choices for their own bodies. We believe that America is better when America is truly united. We believe that when Wisconsin is Democratic, and Wisconsin thrives on progressive legislation, values, and leadership.

We are working every day to elect Democrats up and down the ballot, pass progressive legislation, provide aid to our communities, and we hope you'll join us in our fight to make Wisconsin blue.
