URGENT: Protect Wisconsin’s statewide mask mandate



The Wisconsin Legislature is moving quickly to overturn our statewide mask mandate, an egregiously irresponsible move as the pandemic continues to claim lives and threaten the health care system in our state. Please take a few moments to join FFRF in telling our lawmakers to “listen to the science” and uphold the life-saving mask mandate.

Public policy must be based on science, reason, data, compassion and expertise, especially during a pandemic. In the absence of any legislative leadership on the Covid-19 pandemic, Gov. Tony Evers recently extended Wisconsin’s statewide mask mandate through March 20, 2021. As he pointed out in his emergency order, there are new, highly contagious Covid-19 variants that pose a significant risk to Wisconsinites, our health care system and our essential workers.

Read FFRF’s full letter to the Wisconsin state Assembly.

Shockingly, the state Senate has voted to overturn this order. The Assembly will vote tomorrow, Thursday, Jan. 28, on a similar measure. Please click on the red “Take Action” link below to contact your assemblyperson and urge them NOT to overturn Wisconsin’s statewide mask mandate and to defend public health policy driven by science and data. Feel free to use or adapt the talking points provided. Personalized messages are always the most impactful.
