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 progressive women and male allies fighting for our values during Trump's administration. While our activism tackles national issues, we're also focused on Wisconsin, and specifically on Dane County and the city of Madison. Want to know more? Get in touch.
What are our values?
As a group, we voted to focus primarily on women's rights, economic empowerment, racial justice and the environment, but we also advocate for a variety of progressive, liberal causes.
How do we seek change?
We send a thorough, organized and user-friendly email every Monday or Tuesday, featuring a curated set of the most effective actions, resources and events, so you can stay on top of local, state and national activism. See an example below, and subscribe here.
We run a Facebook group for more rapid-fire response and sharing updated information, and to serve as a forum for Team 19 members.
Team 19's executive committee also:
- arranges group events (including workshops and social activism events)
- organizes participation in rallies and protests
- coordinates volunteer opportunities with local organizations and nonprofits
Do what you can, when you can, and know you're not alone.
Team 19 supports activism in three primary ways: our weekly newsletter, our Facebook group, and public events.
Our main vehicle for communication is our weekly newsletter, which includes:
- Volunteer opportunities
- Information about activist and community events in Dane County, WI
- Weekly drafts for calling or emailing local and national government representatives
- and more.
We couldn't do what we do without our growing Facebook community. You'll find us sharing weekly calls-to-action and phone scripts, urgent news, tips and last-minute events.
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.
