Fair Maps for Wisconsin Summit
Organizer: Fair Maps for Wisconsin
The Fair Maps for Wisconsin Summit is a non-partisan statewide event with the goal of educating and empowering activists to inform voters about gerrymandering and get legislators and candidates for the legislature on the record for supporting fair maps legislation - an independent process to draw legislative district maps. The focus for the summit is to create regional grassroots groups with the skills, relationships, resources and coordination needed to accomplish this goal. Gerrymandering is destructive to our democracy, and Wisconsin is now at the epicenter of some of the worst gerrymandering in the country. Gerrymandering threatens every aspect of our lives, from funding for education and roads to healthcare, the environment and all the things that affect our quality of life. Most importantly, gerrymandering undermines fair legislative representation in our state and national governments.
