MADISON, WI—Member organizations of Wisconsin’s Fair Maps Coalition will join State Senator Jeff Smith and State Representative Deb Andraca to re-introduce nonpartisan redistricting reform at a rally on Monday, May 17, at 12 noon, on the State Street side of the State Capitol. Other speakers include former Republican State Senator Dan Theno, Devin Anderson from the African-American Roundtable, and other leaders in the redistricting reform movement.
“The keyword for redistricting is transparency,” said Sachin Chheda, Chair of the WI Fair Maps Coalition and Director of the Fair Elections Project. “We look forward to reintroduction of the ‘Iowa-model’ legislation to take map-drawing out of the hands of politicians and return it to the people.”
