DINE & DISCUSS
Monday, April 26th 2021 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM on Zoom
Join us in celebrating the national League’s People Powered Day of Action! “This year, states will undergo the redistricting process, using 2020 census data to craft new maps. We want to ensure that the public’s voice is heard as the maps are drawn.”
This Dine & Discuss we will be focusing on this “grassroots project with the intention of curtailing gerrymandering. The crux of it is inviting people to define for themselves what they consider to be the geography of their own communities (by both meeting together to mark a map as well as walking the perimeter) and then seeing how the district lines compare.”
There is an LWVUS national day of action on April 29th, but there will be movement on it from now until September and we highly encourage League members to not only attend this event, but also any of the variety events being hosted nationally, to view them click here!
