Online Living Room Conversation: The Census, Redistricting & Gerrymandering
September 22, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am PDTFree
Join us for an online (using Zoom) Living Room Conversation on the topic of The Census, Redistricting & Gerrymandering. Please see the conversation guide for this topic (under Topics on this website). Some of the questions explored include:
- Who should decide voting districts? I.e. the state legislature, citizen commission, party-appointed commission, governor appointed commission, the courts/judges, or ??
- If you were king/queen for a day, how would you draw districts? Should certain ethnic or minority groups have protected districts to increase representation?
- How should city/county boundaries and geography play a role in drawing district lines?
- Have you ever been surprised to find out you were or were not in a voting district?
The conversation will take place on Saturday from 9 – 10:30m (Pacific). You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
Please only sign up for a place in this conversation if you are 100% certain that you can join – and thank you – we have many folks waiting to have Living Room Conversations and hope to have 100% attendance.
A link to join the conversation and additional details will be sent to you by no later than the day before the conversation.
