The Building Unity Democracy Tour
In 2020, social distancing and wearing masks, Building Unity drove a 34’ Motorhome, dubbed the “Votemobile”, over 3,000 miles around Wisconsin, to engage and register voters.
Sadly, we are witnessing the steady erosion of our democracy as gerrymandering, voter suppression, partisanship and misinformation threaten to undermine our institutions and the very foundation of our democracy. The Vote.
This Summer, Building Unity will be taking the Votemobile back on the road with the message that Your Democracy Needs YOU. The Tour will feature a traveling exhibit of artwork, photographs and videos inspired by the struggles for women’s suffrage, Peace, Civil Rights, Justice and environmental movements and, more recently, what has been happening in Ukraine.
We will be interviewing and recording comments by ordinary people in communities around Wisconsin, to share their thoughts about what preserving our democracy means to them. Their comments, along with some related documentaries, and films will be shown on a large flat-screen TV mounted on the side of the Building Unity Votemobile.
Interviews and comments will be shared on Building Unity’s social media accounts and local TV stations on the tour and we hope to serve as a catalyst for local engagement and action. FYI, Building Unity is a non-partisan, non-profit project of the PC Foundation.
