Progressive women, gender nonbinary folks and male allies fighting back against Trump in Madison, WI, through activism, advocacy and volunteering

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.
