WATCH NOW: Advocacy Day 2019 Highlight Video

July 23, 2019

WHA’s Advocacy Day on April 17 drew nearly 1,000 attendees from across the state. Whether you were there or you missed it this year, all the highlights can be seen in this video.

This year’s program featured two Wisconsin Governors—current Governor Tony Evers and former Governor Tommy G. Thompson. Also, the bipartisan legislative panel included members of the Legislature’s powerful budget writing committee, the Joint Committee on Finance—Sen. LaTonya Johnson (D-Milwaukee), Sen. Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green), Rep. John Nygren (R-Marinette), and Rep. Evan Goyke (D-Milwaukee).

Following the program, more than 500 advocates went to the Capitol to meet with 130 legislators to discuss policy areas impacting high-quality, affordable, and accessible health care.
