Describing the tour’s purpose as “to help people all over Wisconsin to find each other and come together to build a united movement in support of democracy,” the Building Wisconsin organization will bring its 34-foot UnityMobile vehicle to sites throughout the city to inspire and encourage people to vote in the November general election. Each stop will include inspirational speakers, music, banners and voter registration information.
