The SouthWest Wisconsin Area Progressives (SWWAP) is a local democracy-in-action group advocating progressive government policies that work for a sustainable future. The group is committed to educating the public, as well as itself, in current events. It feels that such an ongoing education, in this warp speed world, is necessary in order to participate in our democracy as informed citizens. SWWAP is open to discussing a broad range of issues, and future topics may include: the occupation in Iraq; voting registration; education; the economy; trade policies; health care current USA alienation and unilateralism in the world; our eroding democracy; and environmental concerns. Topics will be discussed as they are relevant.
This progressive group also feels that when American citizens remain uninformed and apathetic, they do not vote, and their democratic government is then weakened. The group is concerned that this apathetic attitude is growing in America and wants to challenge that apathetic way of being. Hence, SWWAP has been formed.
