FAIR MAPS NOW!
On Friday, June 7, 2021, at 6 pm, Oregon Area Progressives’ Open Mic will give residents a chance to participate in redistributing. Participants will help draft a political map of our community.
Anyone can view the Open Mic, but to participate you must register at http://bit.ly/OAP_Maps
The event will be broadcast on Facebook live, at https://www.facebook.com/oregonareaprogressives/
Redistricting happens every 10 years after the decennial census. That's when electoral maps are redrawn to reflect changes in population. In 2011, maps were created that federal court judges later found "to be an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander." This time, we, the People of Wisconsin, have an opportunity to create and submit community maps to the People's Maps Commission - a nonpartisan group of nine Wisconsin citizens that is creating maps through a transparent process with public input.
Make your voice heard. Join the Oregon Area Progressives on Friday, June 7th at 6pm to help create a map of our community.
