    21st Century Wisconsin Political Reform Chautauqua

    by Wisconsin United to Amend

    Date And Time

    Sat, Sep 7, 2019, 8:30 AM –

    Sun, Sep 8, 2019, 2:00 PM CDT


    Location

    Dunn County Historical Society

    1820 Wakanda Street Northeast

    Menomonie, WI 54751

    Description

    Wisconsin United to Amend is proud to host the first 21st Century Political Reform Chautauqua – and you are invited.

    This is a statewide event for folks who understand that our Republic is lost to the big money that controls our elections and a majority of our politicians.

    We The People have to Restore our Republic from this corrupt, big-money political system.

    On September 7th and 8th, 2019, we will hold the Chautauqua at the Dunn County Historical Society, in Menomonie Wisconsin. We hope this will be in the nature of the many Chautauquas around the nation in the 1800s and early 1900s - held to educate citizen about political conditions and actions needed – before the time of mass communications.

    We will have presentations by leaders of organizations that are currently involved in building the movement needed to create reforms necessary to Restore our Republic. But it won’t all be business – we will have good food, entertainment, and opportunities for you do network with Wisconsin’s busy reformers.

    Wisconsin is currently leading the nation in building the political reform movement. And we are determined to Restore our Republic from the dysfunctional political system that has stolen it. This is your chance to become part of history – much like Wisconsin is well known for its prowess for the Gilded Age reform movement lead by Fighting Bob Lafollette. Wisconsin can, nay must, lead the nation again.

    Will you become part of this historic event? We need you to both join us at the event, and then to become active reformers who will move Wisconsin, and the nation, to have politicians who once again represent We the People. See you there!

    Let’s Fix This!

    • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
    • Annville, PA

    Draw the Lines Mapathon at Lebanon Valley College

    by Draw the Lines PA

    Date And Time

    Thu, September 26, 2019

    6:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT


    Location

    Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery

    Zimmerman Hall

    1 West Church Street

    Annville, PA 17003

    Description

    Democracy means voters choose their politicians. Sadly, current Pennsylvania law lets politicians choose their voters. Draw the Lines PA (DTL) aims to change that, to create fair congressional districts for all Pennsylvania voters.

    On September 26, DTL will be partnering with Lebanon Valley College to engage students and voters in Central PA in a night of civic engagement and citizen mapping. Redistricting and gerrymandering impact all Pennsylvanians, and DTL is your chance to take make your voice heard in how you want PA's congressional districts to be mapped.

    DTL offers the use of free digital mapping software, so that you can learn how congressional district maps are made and try your hand at creating your own. Maps can then be entered to win cash prizes and shared with our elected officials in Harrisburg so they know how Pennsylvanians want to be represented.

    We'll be dividing into teams, rolling up our sleeves, and encouraging participants to either draw a map or have a say in one that will be submitted to elected officials for their consideration. Bring your laptop!

    Senator Mike Folmer, an advocate for reforming the current process, will be in attendance. 

    Where: Zimmerman Hall, Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery, 1 West Church St., Annville, PA, 17003. Ample parking in the municipal parking lot off Church St.

    When: Thursday, September 26, 6:30-8:30 p.m., but we have the lab until 10 p.m. so you can stay longer if you'd like.

    Sponsored by the Department of History, Politics & Global Studies at Lebanon Valley College
