Join Monroe County NOW for our February chapter meeting!

At 3pm, Julie Vaughn, Common Cause Indiana Policy Director, will join us for a discussion on gerrymandering and redistricting reform. Redistricting reform is critical for a reflective democracy and to ensure everyone’s vote counts. We will discuss actions each of us can take to have an impact.
