Wisconsin Active Legislation Support Letter:
Here is a pre-written support page for the end of the 2019-2020 session and the start of the 2021-22 Wisconsin legislation session that you can print out, sign, and mail to your legislators.
Want to make a even bigger impact? Please engage your elected official directly via email, phone, or office visit. In this case, we really need you to contact your Wisconsin State Senator and Wisconsin State Assembly Representative. It is not always easy, fun or exciting, but it is activism…and well, part of democracy and some would say our civic duty.
Open the google doc we created to bring up some quick information to educate yourself before you call. Talking points are included in the support letter. The new legislative session for 2021-2022 will begin early in January after the November 2020 election.
Elections? What…. are you prepared? Do you know who represents you? Do you know your elected officials stance on marijuana reform? We have worked with NORML to develop a comprehensive database of our Wisconsin State Senators. We have assigned a letter grade from A to F to them and provided information on their stance on marijuana reform. We will be adding candidates to the database up through the primary in August. Visit https://vote.norml.org/ for the legislative scorecards and voting information. Our chapter has begun to highlight State Senate and Assembly Races here.
If your elected official indicates they are a past sponsor or supports marijuana reform, please thank them and send us a quick email for our files. Most likely if you call you will speak with a staffer and not the elected official. If the staffer does not know or indicates a negative stance from the official …here comes the hard part….talk to them about hemp cannabis and why reform is important to you, as well as hit some of the bullet points in the PDF/Google Doc. There is some education to be done to our elected officials and you are just the one to do it.
If you want to speak with NORML representative before you contact an elected official do not hesitate to call, but please know who your elected officials are. If you are not sure who your Senator and Assembly Representatives are, please use the follow link: http://maps.legis.wisconsin.gov/
Or you can sign it the form and return it to any NORML board member and we will collect them and make copies for both of your legislators and then present it to them along with a stack of other signed letters of support.
Also, please feel free to print multiple copies and collect signed letters from friends, family, and strangers alike. The more support we can show our legislators, the more likely it is we can achieve marijuana reform in Wisconsin!
You can also snail mail completed signature support letters to us at Northern Wisconsin NORML, PO Box 542, Ripon, Wisconsin 54971 or contact us directly at anytime to become active in collecting.
