A blog by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration about justice and peace issues

Wisconsin will hold elections on Tuesday to recall six Republican seats from the state legislature. These recall elections were a strong and pointed reaction to the attacks on unions made by Walker this past winter.

Wisconsin is popping up all over the news as the site of the most important elections of the year. What message will be sent to conservative lawmakers looking to disenfranchise workers, immigrants, and the economically poor? Will the message be that if you take on the working class with unfair and extreme politics you can expect to lose your seat? Or will it be a green light – after some protest politicians can expect to be able to push through their extreme agendas?

Check out the Rachel Maddow clip below (includes a mention of La Crosse) and go and vote on Tuesday! Then come back and let us know on the post which way will Wisconsin go.
