In early 2019, WiLD partnered with the ACLU of WI and WI Public Education Network to train over 300 people in four regions on: the budget process, telling your story as a way of giving testimony, and developing local organizing tactics. Action teams were formed by legislative district to advocate for a WI Biennial Budget that divests in mass incarceration and invests in K-12 public education. Half the participants were doing this for the first time, and went on to testify at the public budget hearings.
