Who We Are.
What We Stand For.
The mission of Forward Kenosha is to act in solidarity to promote peace and to ensure the dignity, inclusion, equality, safety and respect of every person in our community through education, advocacy and political engagement.
We believe we can be stronger by working together to defend the rights of citizens and by advocating for progressive policies that support the prosperity of all Americans.
We believe that democracy requires us to be active participants, voters, and engaged in our government.
We will continue to educate ourselves on current issues and relevant history so that we may inspire ways to advocate and improve laws and policies so that they fairly represent and protect the rights of all people.
We believe that politicians who answer to big money do not have the interest of their constituents in mind, but the interest of their donors. This no longer is acceptable.
We will serve as a reminder to our elected officials that they represent us and insist that our representatives answer for their actions and acknowledge our concerns.
We believe that in order to work together, we must model values of inclusion, tolerance, and fairness.
We will be an ally to those in our community who face discrimination and harassment based on gender, race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, gender identity and/or sexual orientation.
We will advocate for the community that reflects our values.
One that is welcoming, safe, diverse, inclusive, and presents opportunities for all.
We will stand up to those who seek to disenfranchise, abuse, or take advantage of members of our community,
especially those who are most vulnerable.
We will seek to provide continued education for ourselves and our community aided by facilitating opportunities to communicate with our elected officials and our community.
We will seek to increase local interest and participation in elections by helping residents attain the information needed to make an informed decision, assisting with voter registration access, and promoting candidates whose beliefs align with our principles.
