#WeAreAllIn

In Wisconsin, it’s in our nature to do right by our friends and neighbors. Our health and our economy have never been more connected than they are today. We’re All In is an initiative based on the idea that to move forward, we need to have each other’s backs. Adjusting our behavior isn’t just the surest way to slow the spread of COVID-19, but the smartest way to get our economy back on track. So as we navigate through these times, let’s remember that the actions of one can affect many. Let’s continue to do good for the greater good. And let’s never forget that in Wisconsin we’re all in this together.
