Welcome to the Grassroots Citizens of Wisconsin
We are a network of engaged people in southwest Wisconsin who through constructive dialogue and education foster informed, positive change in our communities.
Since our founding in 2003, Grassroots has made a significant impact. More and more of our members are getting involved in local community action -- and having fun doing it! They're meeting their neighbors, attending forums, writing letters to the editor, participating in task forces and working for positive community change. A volunteer organization, we think globally and act locally through collective action. Below you'll see a number of ways to get involved.
