    Fair Maps Lobby Night

    2020 is the year for Fair Maps - but we need you to put the People Power in the movement to get it done!

    Join the Tame the Gerrymander coalition in Annapolis to meet with legislators and tell them how important it is that they pass redistricting reform for fair election maps for the next decade! These maps will be drawn in 2021 - so there is no time to lose.

    Please Click Here to Sign Up at Eventbrite if you plan to attend so we can coordinate appointments the appropriate legislators. Thank you!

    Be sure to get to Annapolis early to find parking - this will be a busy night in Annapolis! Click here to learn more about parking options.
