Maureen Freedland has been an advocate for a variety of community causes including anti-poverty and civil rights work. She has served on the La Crosse County Board since 2005 and is the chair of the committee which includes roads, public parks, and the environmental disposal of solid waste. 

She is a founding member of Citizens Acting for Rail Safety - a grassroots advocacy group in Wisconsin and Minnesota to improve train safety for the benefit of people, wildlife and the environment - and she is also active in local environmental initiatives.

Maureen grew up alongside the Mississippi River in New Orleans and now lives in La Crosse, near the largest and highest quality urban wetlands in Wisconsin, with her husband Robert.
