Everyone wants fairness in elections.

People Powered Fair MapsTM is a national program of the League of Women Voters focused on creating fair political maps nationwide with the expectation to engage residents in creating awareness about redistricting, its importance, and the impact redistricting has on how their vote is counted.

Bring your lunch and join us for this monthly public policy discussion co-sponsored by the League and the Columbia Public Library.

(Note that Lunch & Learn is usually held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, but the day was changed this month due to the presidential primary election on the second Tuesday.)
