Grassroots Citizens of Wisconsin - About Us

Our Vision and Shared Values

Grassroots Citizens of Wisconsin is a network of engaged people in Southwest Wisconsin who through constructive dialogue and education foster informed, positive change at the local, regional and national levels.

Our work is rooted in the basic values of opportunity, fairness, tolerance and respect for each other.

  • We value our freedom to communicate ideas, just as we value the tolerance and respect which is given to others who speak, write, and take action.
  • We value universal access to excellence in education, to economically sustainable jobs, and to quality health care.
  • We seek security through global cooperation.
  • We value honesty, integrity, and financial responsibility in governments and in business, as we do in our homes and in our communities.
  • We value respect for the resources of our planet.
  • We value fairness in bearing the burdens of citizenship.
  • We value common good over self-interest.
  • We value the arts which delight, inspire and enliven our shared community life.

Our e-mail Grassroots Gazette alerts citizens to local events that inform and motivate them to act -- by contacting their legislators, writing letters to the editor or getting involved in local citizen action efforts. Our Interest Groups study and advocate positions on issues such as the environment and climate change, health care reform and peace and justice issues. We enjoy good debates and the friendship of those who might not always agree with us.  Email Shirley Barnes at [email protected] if you would like to receive a copy.
