Gerrymandering: a practice intended to establish an unfair political advantage for a particular party by manipulating the boundaries of electoral districts.

As Wisconsin prepares to redraw the boundaries, you can make your voice heard.

Every 10 years, following the census, Wisconsin redraws the boundaries for their legislative and congressional districts. While the state legislator has the authority to draw these maps, you can make your voice heard by submitting maps to the People's Map Commission. Join us this Thursday, September 2 at 5 p.m. for a discussion on the consequences of Gerrymandering and a workshop of Districtr (https://districtr.org/), a free, open-source software designed for public input in the redistricting process. Try your hand at redistricting!

Register here: https://bit.ly/3BrDbeL. After registering, you will receive an email with a link and phone number to join the program.

Falls are preventable injuries that impact your quality of life. It is important to talk to your healthcare team and take steps to reduce risk and prevent falls.

Practical Tips
• Speak up - talk to your primary care provider and the rest of the health care team about any recent falls.
• Get screened once a year for fall risk and take steps to address unsteadiness when walking.
• Addressing multiple risk factors for falls such as medications, balance and home safety can reduce falls by 25%.

For more information and resources, read the entire Tip of the Month on our website at: https://www.mcfpc.net/resources

National Senior Citizens Day, August 21st | Council on Aging of Central Oregon

Take a moment today to celebrate National Senior Citizens Day -
"“Throughout our history, older people have achieved much for our families, communities, and country. That remains true today and gives us ample reason to reserve a special day in honor of the senior citizens who mean so much to our land,”
https://www.councilonaging.org/blog/national-senior-citizens-day-august-21st/

It was 1988, when, through Proclamation 5847, Ronald Reagan deemed August 21st the day America would celebrate seniors. Over 30 years later, as older people live longer, healthier, and more productive, the cause for celebration is more appropriate than ever. Reagan intended National Senior Citizens....
