Burlington, VT – Over this past weekend, Democracy for America (DFA), continued to exceed organizational expectations for the Get Out The Vote efforts in Wisconsin’s recall campaign. This weekend alone, DFA was able to knock on over 38,000 doors to recall Governor Scott Walker.


“I’m on the ground in Wisconsin and people are fired up and are ready for recall,” said Jim Dean, Chair of Democracy for America.  “While the Koch brothers and big business continue to try and buy the vote, everyday people like you and me are getting out and getting active in their communities.  This is grassroots activism at its finest.”


In the 15-month long campaign Democracy for America has already:

Knocked on over 233,500 doors to identify Wisconsin voters who support the recall efforts;


Made over 411,500 phone calls in over 36 counties across the state; and
Over 4000 DFA members have volunteered their time to help in the recall efforts.
“The assault on working families has continued for far too long in this country,” Jim Dean continued. “When Scott Walker made it a priority to balance the budget on the backs of hard working people in Wisconsin – the people stood up and said ‘enough’.  The determination and tenacity of Wisconsinites to demand fair pay sent shockwaves through our nation. GOP cronies like Gov. Walker may try to break our spirits and diminish our pay, but democracy wasn’t created for only the richest 1 percent – it was created for everyone.  Wisconsinites are taking democracy and their state back.”
Democracy for America has been on the ground in Wisconsin fighting back and protecting working families for the past 15 months.  DFA organizers are leading three major get out the vote efforts in Racine, Madison and Eau Claire.
