“Every Voter, Every Election: Supermarket Legends in the Fight for Voter Empowerment”

September 13, 2020 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Categories:

Presenter: Linea Sundstrom, Co-founder, Supermarket Legends.

Over the last decade, Wisconsin voters have faced nearly 40 changes to voting laws. Most of these changes served to make voting more difficult, especially for low-income, disabled, elderly, and student voters. All of them served to confuse voters.

Supermarket Legends of Milwaukee emerged as an all-volunteer grassroots action group with the motto and mission: every voter, every election. We go to the people–supermarkets, farmers markets, community events, marches—to register voters and provide them the tools they need to empower themselves at the ballot box. Learn about the history and current strategies of the Legends and bring your voting and elections questions.

Through her leadership, Linea Sundstrom has learned the hard way how to harness people power. Linea is an independent consultant in archaeology and historic preservation for federal and state agencies.
