Play About One Mom's Civic Journey

Many Maps, One Voice, adapted from the book "Politics of the Possible" tracks the redistricting journey of Mary Ellen McCaffree, played by veteran stage actress Jane Fellows (Belle of Amherst, The Trip to Bountiful, First Lady Lou). Timely and timeless, Many Maps is a call to civic engagement, citizen action and civility in the ongoing voting rights fight inherent in the census and redistricting effort.
A great tribute to the League of Women Voters, the performance is Feb. 22nd at 2 p.m. at Mirabella Portland, Willamette Hall, 3550 SW Bond Ave., Portland. Free to attend!
