Legislative Briefing: Gerrymandering

  • Texas Capitol 1100 South Congress Avenue Austin, TX, 78704 United States (map)

BBQ Lunch provided!

Catered by Micklethwait BBQ

People of all political stripes are overwhelmingly opposed to having the outcomes of elections predetermined for them through unfair redistricting. In fact, a recent bipartisan poll found that 71% of Americans would like the Supreme Court to act to end partisan gerrymandering. So why does mapmaking still happen behind closed doors in the Texas legislature?

JOIN US at the Texas Capitol to learn about the state of redistricting in Texas and what other states are doing to solve this issue.

Featuring:

State Representative Mary González

Michael Li, The Brennan Center for Justice

California ICRC Commissioners Connie Malloy, Jodie Filkins-Webber, & Gabino Aguirre
