WHAT WE DO
StageW brings WisconsinAlive by bridging the political divide. We are a grassroots section 501(c)(4) non-profit that activates the best ideas no matter where they come from. We bring courage and fresh thinking to complicated social issues that divide our state and set a new tone so people can come together around plans that make living here better for everyone.
StageW provides courageous leadership by first rejecting political divisiveness and then advancing fresh ideas to activate the best solutions to the complex social issues dividing Wisconsin.
1. Hearing people from all political perspectives, belief systems and walks of life
- Meetings and events
- Conversations at StageW.org
- Social media conversations
2. Creating innovative solutions for the complex social issues dividing Wisconsin
We’ve made job creation and world-class education our top priorities because Wisconsinites have made these issues their top priorities. We’ll expand our thinking to identify holistic solutions for other important priorities in Wisconsin as soon as we see progress advancing these initiatives.
3. Building consensus around the best ideas and activating them no matter where they come from.
- Allowing the best ideas to compete for the resources available
- Activating the winning ideas and moving forward as friends and neighbors
In these activities we are…
- Modeling fruitful conversations
- Rediscovering our love and respect for one another
- Hearing people who feel unheard
- Considering all political perspectives, belief systems and walks of life
- Honoring strong opposing beliefs
- Learning from the feedback received
