Here’s the difference YOU can make…

This campaign is unique and innovative because it is capable of changing public discourse to a more progressive direction. Here’s how it works:

  • People will be empowered through teaching and organizing a new system of messaging and communications.
  • This unifying system will spread around the state at the local level, connecting people through shared values.
  • The Forward Institute (501c3) has collaborated with Dr. George Lakoff, one of the world’s leading cognitive neural scientists in developing this program.
  • Your contribution will make the critical difference towards effectively changing public discourse in Wisconsin and the entire nation.
