January lunch and learn
Meagan Wolfe is the administrator of the Wisconsin Elections Commission, a six-member bipartisan body (three Democrats and three Republicans) whose members are selected by the legislature and the governor.

January Book Club
 
"This is a narrative that describes the urgency that compels me and millions more to push for a different American story than the one being told today. It's a story that is one part danger, one part action, and all true. It's a story about how and why we fight for our democracy and win."                                    Goodreads.com
 
This is very timely as Stacey Abrams has announced
 her candidacy for Georgia governor!

Call to Action...
for your advocacy on League positions that affect our lives 
Freedom to Vote Act
If you follow along with the League of Women Voters US, you probably know that they have been protesting for the Freedom to Vote Act for some time now. Along with many other key provisions, this piece of federal legislation would protect against gerrymandering, set national redistricting standards, ensure more transparency in the drawing process, and add judicial remedies so gerrymandered maps can be fixed in the courts.

From LWVUS: "The League is proud to support the Freedom to Vote Act, as it is the most significant voting rights bill in generations. This legislation will provide equal access to voting for all Americans, stop partisan gerrymandering, and limit the influence of dark money so that billionaires can’t buy elections."
