SEIU Local 1 Celebrates Joe Biden’s Victory as Wisconsin Flips Back to Blue


By - Nov 7th, 2020 11:02 am

MILWAUKEE  –  The following is a statement from SEIU Local 1 member Felicia Hailstock, a Milwaukee Security Officer regarding Joe Biden’s election victory in Wisconsin. Local 1 members, organizing leaders, and our partners sent 80 million texts, made 39 million phone calls, and knocked on more than 2 million doors over the cycle to turn out voters in key races:

“Essential workers like me turned out in record numbers to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. I took the ballot myself to the post office to ensure my vote was counted. My vote was for Joe Biden, my neighborhood and my four grandsons. I voted for them because we need racial justice rooted in our communities.

“Essential workers voted for an inclusive, resilient America. We showed that nothing—not this pandemic or this president—will stand in our way of building a multiracial democracy and the most inclusive middle class in history.”
