Oregon Area Progressives supports passage of legislation to establish a nonpartisan process for creating voting district maps. People should pick their representatives. Politicians should not be allowed to choose their voters.

Mission Statement of the Wisconsin Fair Maps Coalition:
The mission of the Wisconsin Fair Maps Coalition is to ensure representative government for all, by advocating for and enacting (in law and practice) an independent and nonpartisan redistricting process, building a truly fair and accountable judiciary, and securing the rights of the populace to fair and equal access to voting, by educating and engaging the people of Wisconsin.
Law Forward exists to protect and strengthen our democracy. Law Forward stands for a commitment to fair, transparent, and representative government; where Wisconsinites can participate in free, fair elections where their votes count.
Law Forward is a pro-voter, pro-democracy nonprofit that was created because Wisconsin needed a legal organization that could strategically develop the law in the progressive tradition Wisconsin is known for. Law Forward builds cases and identify opportunities to protect the right to vote and strengthen free and fair elections. Their work engages policymakers, the legal community, and the public on legal issues, expanding both opportunities and demand for progressive change.
