New Richmond resident Heidi Herron founded WIvoices.org in May 2011.

“WIvoices.org sprang out of frustration at not being able to hear how regular people were affected by policy choices,” Herron said. “This felt like something that I could do to help add to the public discussion about what was going on.”

Herron’s organization has applied for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status but in the meantime has benefited from the fiscal sponsorship of the St. Croix Valley Foundation.
