Voters Not Politicians: Gerrymandering in Michigan
Join us for a voter education panel! Proposal #2 on Michigan's ballot this year gives voters the opportunity to change the process by which our state redraws congressional and state legislative district lines. Katie Fahey from Voters Not Politicians will make the case for why voters should approve the initiative, while Tony Daunt of the Michigan Freedom Fund will make the case for why voters should not approve it.

WMU Fetzer Center, 6 p.m.
Reception to Follow

WMU's Student Code of Conduct applies to this event, as does the University's Civility Statement, which states that ad hominem attacks directed toward individuals, rather than positions or ideas, do not contribute to a healthy educational environment.  See the full civility statement.

Questions from the audience will be collected ahead of time on the event Facebook page and at the forum.
