Drawing a Line for Democracy: Rethinking Redistricting Campaign
LWV of Indianapolis and Common Cause/Indiana are partners in a campaign to raise public awareness about the need for an independent redistricting commission
To raise awareness about this issue so that legislators can be contacted November 22 (immediately following the General Assembly November 20 Organization Day), a user-friendly resource guide has been developed. It contains everything one would need to host a `house party' or a conversation circle about this topic and can be found here.
We must help Indiana rethink redistricting and move beyond the current practice of creating gerrymandered districts that undermine the "one person, one vote" concept of our democracy.
