LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) --- Leader Ethics-Wisconsin executive director Lee Rasch announced on Wednesday the release of their new guide, "The 2020 Citizens Guide for Ethical Leadership Among Elected Officials."

The nonprofit, which has nearly 200 members, dedicates its time to promoting ethical principles in politics and their leaders at the local, state, and federal level.

The guide addresses a variety of topics where political messages from leaders will appear, like social media. It is in its first stage, and Rasch can see it expanding as the 2020 election approaches.

"We want to show you there are things you can do, and we're going to give you examples and suggestions," said Rasch. "It's not all encompassing. We know we're going to add to the list as we go forward."

The guide features background information and practices that citizens can use to promote ethical leadership in their communities.

"We want to get people thinking about not feeling empty and not able to have an impact but really give them a chance to think about what they could do that could make difference when the opportunities arise," said Rasch.

Leader Ethics-Wisconsin is a 501(C)(4) with two state chapters in La Crosse and Madison. To get a copy of the guide, reach out to Leader Ethics-Wisconsin by visiting their website
