re:TH!NK encourages all members of the community to stand up for what they believe. It could be an issue that has personally impacted you or your family, a social injustice you've witnessed in your community, or an idea to make the world a better place to live and grow up healthy. Whatever the issue is, YOU have the ability to make a difference. We've provided some resources and outlets here to help you achieve change.

Write a Letter to the Editor

The best way to gain support for you issue is by telling others your opinion. That way, others who fell the same way you do can join together and do something about it. 

Contact your Policymakers

Whether its your local village board, city council, state legislators, or US congressperson, these are the people that have the power to make change happen. Find out who represents you at the state and federal level on the Wisconsin State Legislature website or find out who represents you locally in Winnebago County.
