REDISTRICTING REFORM ACTIVIST TRAINING AUGUST 4

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or new to the issue of redistricting reform, you’ll benefit from attending the Indiana Coalition for Independent Redistricting (ICIR) workshop on August 4th from 9:30 am- 1 pm at Oaklyn Library.

CONTINUING THE FIGHT FOR FAIR MAPS 


Earlier this month the Supreme Court ruled that the plaintiffs in Gill v. Whitford  failed to demonstrate standing and sent the case back to the district court to give the plaintiffs a chance to demonstrate that they have suffered “concrete and particularized injuries”. In Benisek v. Lamone, the court also sent the case back to the lower courts without ruling on the merits.  

Both decisions mean that voters in Maryland and Wisconsin will once again be forced to participate in an election under an unconstitutional map. However, Leagues continue to gain momentum on redistricting, including in Pennsylvania where the League is working for a plan 'free from partisan hijacking' and in North Carolina where we could see the next big legal battle on gerrymandering.   

Check out A Conversation on Redistricting with Ruth Greenwood and Nick Stephanopoulos, originally broadcast live at our National Convention on June 28. Greenwood served on the legal team for the plaintiffs in Gill v. Whitford and Stephanopoulos created the Efficiency Gap Theory, which is the standard the court considered in the Gill v. Whitford case. Both are co-council for the League of Women Voters of North Carolina in the partisan gerrymandering case, LWV v. Rucho
