WI Interfaith Leaders for Fair Maps - sign-on letter!


 

On November 30, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court decided to take a 'least change' approach to deciding the state's legislative districts for the next ten years.  The Court also decided that they would not take partisan gerrymandering into account when deciding what map to adopt. This decision will result in enshrining hyper-partisan gerrymandering in our maps for at least the next ten years, disenfranchising thousands of voters. On December 15, interested parties submitted new maps, adhering to the 'least change' criterion.  On January 18, the Court will begin to hear arguments in the case.



Please help raise the faith voice and call for an end to partisan gerrymandering. Democracy depends on voters choosing their representatives, rather than the other way around.  Otherwise, our elected officials have no reason to listen to our concerns or address the very real needs in our state.

To join your voice with other faith leaders across the state, please sign on to this letter, sponsored by Represent.Us.
