What is Bake the Vote?
The sale is a local effort of the Bakers Against Racism (BAR) initiative, a virtual worldwide movement through which kitchens are being transformed into bases for activism. Local bakers, business owners, entrepreneurs and citizens are aiming to come together over a love of sweet treats and citizenship to get the word out about registering to vote and supporting efforts to make voting accessible to everyone.
All items are donated by area bakers with 100% of sales donated directly to Wisconsin Voices, a nonprofit nonpartisan organization which envisions and works toward a Wisconsin where every person has the means, motivation, and freedom to fully participate in a just democracy.
