MADISON- On Friday, September 14th at 6:45 pm DNC Convention speaker Kal Penn will speak with students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

With just over 50 days until November 6th, students are organizing on campuses across Wisconsin, building a strong grassroots organization to speak with voters one-on-one about the important choice they face in this election and communicating President Obama’s policies to make college affordable for middle-class families.

In Wisconsin, the Obama Administration’s education achievements have already helped thousands of families ensure their sons and daughters get the education they need for good jobs in the future. In 2010, 127,650 Wisconsin students received Pell Grants. The American Opportunity Tax Credit provided an estimated 159,000 Wisconsin students and their families an average $2,100 tax credit towards their tuition expenses in 2011. The Recovery Act supported about 7,981 education jobs in Wisconsin during the 2009-2010 school year.
