Progressive women 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 equality, racial equality and the environment, but we also advocate for a variety of progressive, liberal causes.

How do we seek change?

Facebook Group

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).

While it doesn't replace the wealth of information in the Team 19 digital newsletter, it's a great place to get your daily dose of activism. Join us!

Events

Team 19-hosted workshops, social events, presentations and more.
