Dear ACLU Supporter,

Pop quiz: If you participate in an act of civil disobedience where no one was harmed, could you spend six years in prison and be forced to pay a $10,000 fine?

If an aggressive anti-protest bill becomes law in Wisconsin, the answer very well could be yes. AB 426, which recently passed through the state legislature, seeks to silence activists with the threat of felony charges for protesting at "critical infrastructure" facilities.

While advertised as an effort to protect Wisconsin's infrastructure, the real impact of the bill would be to criminalize peaceful protesters and suppress the freedom of speech.

The bill is now on Governor Tony Evers' desk, and it's up to us to make our voices heard and protect all Wisconsinites' right to protest. Rush a message to Governor Evers' office, and join us in demanding he vetoes AB 426.

In Wisconsin and across the country, climate protesters – who are often members of Native tribes – have been exercising their constitutional right to protest the impending damage to their lands, homes, and livelihoods.

If passed into law, AB 426 would put these demonstrators at risk of being criminally prosecuted for engaging in peaceful, nonviolent civil disobedience – like staging a march that interferes with a tanker truck delivery or blocking a roadway into a refinery.

Here at the ACLU, we believe dissent is a form of patriotism. We believe all people have the right to free speech and the freedom to stand up for what they believe in. And we believe that when people are able to speak out against injustice, it strengthens our democracy for everyone.

So please, join us in demanding Governor Evers vetoes AB 426 – rush a message to his office now.
