The issues we stand for.
Electing Democratic candidates for local, state, and national office makes a big impact for small businesses and working families in Dunn County Wisconsin, and beyond.
Middle Class Economic Security
We believe in restoring the American middle class. People who work hard and play by the rules should get ahead and stay ahead. The system is not working for ordinary Americans who work long hours for low wages, while new income and wealth goes to the top one percent. Democrats believe that the current minimum wage must be increased to a living wage. No one who works full time should have to raise a family in poverty.
Creating New High-paying Jobs
Our priority is creating good-paying jobs for middle-class workers—nurses, construction workers, teachers, and small business owners. That is why Democrats are committed to building a full-employment economy, we believe everyone should have a job that pays enough to raise a family and live with dignity and purpose. We understand the vital importance of small businesses as engines of opportunity.
Climate Change & Clean Energy Policy
Climate change is both an urgent threat and a defining challenge. While Donald Trump has called climate change a “hoax,” 2020 is breaking global temperature records. Farmers struggle to manage unpredictable weather, both floods and droughts. California and the Western US suffer drought and are scorched by wildfire. We do not want to leave our children a planet that has been profoundly damaged by climate change.
High-Quality Education For all
Democrats believe that every child should have access to a high-quality education. We support high-quality, universal preschool programs to help kids get a strong educational start. Democrats combat racial and socio-economic disparities in educational outcomes. We believe every student should have access to a debt-free college education, and working families should attend public colleges and universities tuition-free.
CIVIL RIGHTS & RACIAL JUSTICE
Democrats are committed to standing up to racism in our laws, culture, politics, and society. We recognize that race-neutral policies are insufficient and we take a comprehensive approach to promote racial justice in employment, criminal justice reform, environmental justice, and voting rights. We believe Black lives matter, and will fight to change racially discriminatory policies and promote racial healing.
UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE AS A RIGHT
Democrats believe in access to secure, affordable, high-quality health insurance for all Americans — we believe health care is a right, not a privilege. President Trump downplays the threat of coronavirus and left our frontline health care heroes without the equipment they need. We will work to ensure Americans’ access to doctor visits, prescription medicines, and preventive testing and treatments through universal health care.
