Eau Claire Fair Maps Rally | WisCommunity

Fair Maps Rally Eau Claire

WisCommunity will live-stream the Fair Maps Rally in Eau Claire this Friday, Jan 21 at noon. The rally will be held at the County Courthouse at 712 Oxford Avenue Eau Claire. The rally is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the Greater Chippewa Valley and will also be streamed on their Facebook Page, The WisCommunity Facebook Page, and our YouTube channel. 

According to the League of Women Voters:

The WI Supreme Court will decide our district lines for the decade to come, as the legislature and the governor did not come to an agreement.

These districts will determine whether our votes have equal weight, and whether each of our communities will have equal access to the decision-making processes that determine funds for schools, hospitals, and other essential services that our communities need.

We are rallying to show the WI Supreme Court that we are paying attention and that we want fair maps.

Speakers include:  
- Jeff Smith, Wisconsin State Senator, introduced fair maps legislation
- Wendy Sue Johnson, plaintiff in Whitford case
- Annemarie McClellan, People's Maps Commissioner
- Ellen Ochs, LWV- GCV Co-president and moderator

It will be cold.  We expect to be done within 45 minutes. Hot beverages and hand warmers, while supplies last, will be provided. Signs will also be available or bring your own!

Please join us to send a strong message through the media to the court!
