Close MSDF
Milwaukee DSA is a member of the #CLOSEmsdf coalition, led by Ex-Prisoners Organizing (EXPO). The campaign aims not only to close the Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility and end crimeless revocation, but to reimagine how we invest in people caught in the penal system.

Get the Lead Out
As a member of the Get the Lead Out coalition, DSA Milwaukee is fighting for the right of all people to have access to safe, clean drinking water. Along with a variety of other groups in the city, we are demanding that lead infrastructure is removed from our pipes and our homes.
