From Press Release

WAUSAU, Wisc. — In response to guidance from health officials, WI-07 Democratic candidate Tricia Zunker is canceling or postponing all public campaign events for the next two weeks.

She will instead spend those two weeks meeting in small groups with medical professionals to talk about what more needs to be done in Washington to protect the most vulnerable among us, increasing awareness about best practices to prevent infection, and continuing to reach out to voters through virtual events to talk about the important issues facing Wisconsin and the nation.

"I will spend the next two weeks focusing on what more can be done to protect our most vulnerable communities and reaching voters online to talk about the important issues facing Wisconsin," said Democratic candidate Tricia Zunker. "Wisconsin-07 deserves representation in Washington that will ensure free Coronavirus testing and advocate for paid medical leave, better protections for health care workers, and food assistance for those in need."

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.  Most often, our donors make a one-time gift of $20 or more, while many choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10.  Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
