WORKSHOP: Redistricting Reform Advocacy!. The League of Women Voters Charlotte Mecklenburg is working with the LWVNC Fair Elections Action Team to host a workshop to advance a statewide advocacy approach to redistricting reform.

League leaders working to promote redistricting reform reviewed and studied 50 bills introduced in legislatures throughout the country. Our analysis identified the key elements that make up a "reasonable redistricting reform," one that can control extreme gerrymandering and pass the legislature.

During the workshop, we will review these elements and develop steps to move forward. Be a part of the process! Feel free to invite others who are willing to work towards the goal of getting this much-needed reform passed before the next census/redistricting.

This workshop is funded by a grant from the LWVUS

Come join us! Register here: REGISTER

Registration is required by August 21 (no charge). Light refreshments will be provided. If you have questions, contact Debbie Snowdon, 704.975.4335; Debbie.snowdon@yahoo.com.
