Fight for Fair Maps in Eau Claire

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case on Gerrymandering in Wisconsin, and the latest news is that the case will be heard in early October. A meeting was held in Eau Claire last week in which Sachin Cheda (heading up the lawsuit) and Wendy Sue Johnson (one of the plaintiffs) did a presentation about fair maps in Wisconsin, the lawsuit, and what people can do to promote fair maps in the state. 

This is crucial. Many of our state legislators no longer feel they need to listen to constituents because their party willl hold their seat due to the way that the districts were rearranged after the 2010 census. This lawsuit could be crucial not only for fair maps in Wisconsin, but for all of the other states as well.
