Together with the WI Public Education Network and other partners, we set our sights on impacting the 2017-19 WI Biennial Budget. The campaign resulted in 282 people trained from 84 cities, 6 budget hearings attended by 754 people that garnered $639 million increase in K-12 public education funding. According to former Joint Finance Committee Member, Rep. Katrina Shankland, “They were the most organized and most powerful group in the room.”
