Sept UPDATE: Tuesday Sept 5th UW Oshkosh Campus Petitioning starting at 11am. Here is the facebook event link: Sept 5th UW Oshkosh Decriminalize Petition
Oshkosh Wisconsin will see an influx of activism this fall. Campaign organizers are getting ready to collect signatures in the city of Oshkosh this fall during a decriminalization initiative. With attorney fees paid and additional resources committed, we expect a highly organized campaign staffed with high energy volunteers. Our chapter is going to help again in coordinating volunteer efforts and locating petitioning hubs. In addition Northern Wisconsin NORML has pledged to help with additional fundraising and committed to a goal of $1000 to directly aide this campaign. We are also calling all Northern Wisconsin NORML volunteers to plan on spending some time in Oshkosh this Fall as the signature drive is expected to begin in early September 2017.
But this signature drive should not be conducted alone, almost anyone can help. What we do feel will be the greatest impact is City of Oshkosh residents to step forward and help with this effort in a number of ways including:
- Attend City of Oshkosh Council Meetings (2nd and 4th Tuesday, 6:00 pm, Room 406)
- Volunteer to collect signatures and staff booths at events.
- Business Locations to be petitioning hubs locations.
We need the critical part, your commitment to volunteer today. Please take a moment and email your name and phone number to us directly at email@example.com should you wish to volunteer. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly via phone at 920-931-4207. If you wish to donate to the campaign, please use the PayPal button below. Language and timelines will be available upon campaign kick off and always watch the “Decriminalize Oshkosh” and “420 Oshkosh” Facebook pages for additional information.
