Madison strikers are demanding that Governor Evers, our county, and our city government declare a climate emergency. Our private sector demands to MG&E are that it divest and transition completely to 100% renewable energy by 2030 by closing the Columbia & Elm Road Coal Plants still in use.

🗺 Ending Gerrymandering

When: Sunday, September 22, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Hosted by Grass Roots Organization of Waunakee and Middleton Action Team

"$5 donation at the door covers room charge. Potluck dinner at 5:30 pm is on us. Cash bar. Doug Poland will speak at 6:30 pm.

Support to end partisan gerrymandering is widespread in Wisconsin. A recent Marquette University Law School poll showed that 72% of Wisconsinites want to ban gerrymandering in Wisconsin. And that includes 63% of Republicans and 76% of independents. 

It is now time to take drawing maps out of the hands of politicians and allow a nonpartisan legal staff to draw the lines. 

Our Speaker Doug Poland

Doug Poland has served as co-lead trial counsel for plaintiffs who successfully challenged the Wisconsin Assembly legislative districts before three-judge federal panels in 2012 and 2016, and is one of the members of the legal team that represented the respondents before the U.S. Supreme Court in Gill v. Whitford, and is recently represented the plaintiffs in the remand of the case to the district court on gerrymandering."
