Wauwatosa Fair Maps Town Hall

Wauwatosa Public Library
7635 W North Ave,
Wauwatosa, WI 53213

Does your vote count in Wisconsin? Maybe not.

Wisconsin’s voting maps are so skewed to benefit one political party that a federal court ordered lawmakers to redraw the maps. But instead of complying, certain lawmakers are spending TAXPAYER MONEY—with NO cap on expenditures—to defend the unconstitutional maps. 

What can you DO?! Come find out in this town hall meeting. Experts will fill us in on gerrymandering (unfair voting maps) and share specific actions we can take to stop it. Bring friends! 

Sponsored by the Citizen Action Organizing Cooperative of Greater Milwaukee, Grassroots North Shore, Fair Elections Project and OFA
