Register Now for AFSCME's Road to Recall Victory Conference

You’ve stood up. You’ve spoken up. You’ve walked the walk. You’ve made history.

The largest public uprising ever seen in this state – you made it happen.

The only successful double-recall ever won – wouldn’t have happened without you.

More than one million signatures to recall Scott Walker! Thanks for all that slogging through the snow and cold.

You’ve done it all since Walker dropped the bomb on worker rights. Of course, we aren’t done yet.

We’ve got recalls to win and much more to do to win back our rights.

And to make sure we get it right, we’re putting our heads together at AFSCME’s Tri-Council Political Action Conference in Madison on March 9, 10 and 11.

If you can make it, you’ll get an up-to-the-minute lay of the land from our top political experts.

You’ll get to huddle with the experts for small-group breakout sessions. You’ll get a chance to exchange ideas with AFSCME International Secretary-Treasurer Lee Saunders.

And you’ll also be at ground zero for the other events taking place that weekend, including a special Friday night candlelight vigil at the Capitol. We’ll be mourning the one-year anniversary of the Legislature passing Walker’s Act 10.

After the vigil, conference attendees will gather at a nearby theater for a special screening of We Are Wisconsin, a documentary movie about our historic struggle. Conference participation includes a ticket to the movie.

If you can’t make it to the conference but want to see the movie, you can buy an advance ticket here.

On Saturday morning, March 10, the conference will feature a full morning of action and then break for a mass rally at the Capitol.

We’ll commemorate the one-year mark and to send a strong signal that we are not going to fade away – we are going to keep fighting to get our state headed back in the right direction.

Even if you aren’t coming to the conference, please come to the rally.

We are so proud of the way AFSCME brothers and sisters have come together to fight for each other and for the basic rights that should be guaranteed all workers.

We have learned a lot and accomplished a lot in this past year. Thanks for all you have contributed to the cause.

Please come to the Political Conference and/or join us on March 9-10 as we celebrate our historic fightback -- and then dig in for the fight of our lives in the coming months.

Then, next year, we’ll really have something to celebrate!
