Who We Are
In 1919, Wisconsin became the first state to ratify the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote.
Almost a century later, we're banding together to channel that same pioneering spirit in the fight against racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia and fascism.
Who is Team 19?
We're more than 300 progressive women, gender nonbinary folks and male allies advocating for our values. While our activism tackles national issues, we're primarily focused on Wisconsin, and specifically on Dane County and the city of Madison. Want to know more? Get in touch!
What are our values?
We focus primarily on women's rights, economic empowerment, racial justice and the environment, but we also advocate for a variety of progressive causes.
Do what you can, when you can, and know you're not alone.
Feel like you don't have time to make a difference, or don't know how?
Team 19 is here for you. Pick and choose how you're best able to lend your support, whether it's sending emails, attending rallies, volunteering for campaigns or spreading awareness through social media.
Team 19 supports your activism in the following ways:
- Group events (including workshops and social activism events)
- Participation in rallies and protests
- Volunteer opportunities with local organizations and nonprofits
You'll find us sharing weekly calls-to-action, urgent news, tips and last-minute events, as well as providing a forum for members to coordinate their activism.
We vet new members to help ensure safety and civility, and we monitor posts to avoid duplication or overload (meaning you don't have to worry about an onslaught of pings flooding your notification feed).
Team 19-sponsored workshops, social events, presentations and more.
