Pack the House for Redistricting Reform!. HB 1014 will receive a hearing on February 15th at 3:30 p.m. in Room 156 A of the Statehouse.

This bill is our best chance at meaningful reform aimed to end partisan gerrymandering. We need support now more than ever: there is strength in numbers! Please join us at the hearing!

Want to learn more about the bill, how it can be improved, and how you can create positive change? The League of Women Voters of Indiana and Common Cause of Indiana invite you to attend a "citizen lobbyist" training prior to the hearings at 10:30 a.m. There will be training sessions on both days, February 8th and February 15th at the Indiana State Library on Ohio Street.

If you want to attend the training, we ask that you RSVP to Julia Vaughn at Common Cause by e-mailing jvaughn@commoncause.org.
