MILWAUKEE – The ACLU of Wisconsin and the ACLU today announced the launch of a joint campaign to engage Wisconsin voters ahead of the state supreme court general election on April 4.

The organizations are running a series of advertisements on radio stations across the state – and on digital radio – highlighting the candidates’ record on abortion rights. The ACLU and ACLU of Wisconsin also plan to reach voters through direct mail, door-to-door canvassing, texting and phone banking, hiring organizers and recruiting volunteers to engage with the community and mobilize people to vote.

“We're engaging in the race because of the intense debate in Wisconsin on the legal issues surrounding abortion,” said Dr. Melinda Brennan, executive director of the ACLU of Wisconsin. “We want everyone to understand the significance of the state supreme court in this debate and recognize just how much influence the judges we elect have on issues like abortion and voting rights. Wisconsinites have an incredible opportunity in this election to shape the trajectory of our state for years to come, and we want to make sure that everyone knows it.”
