Representation Matters: A Community Briefing on Redistricting

December 8, 2020 @ 6:00 pm
December 9, 2020 @ 6:45 pm

Presented by the Drawing Democracy Coalition and the Drawing Democracy Fund.

The election is over, but the wheels of Democracy keep on turning! Starting in 2021, the Massachusetts legislature is tasked with drawing voting district lines. The stakes are high: this redistricting process can distort representation or make our democracy more equitable and reflective of all communities.

Redistricting in Massachusetts has a fraught history, but the 2011 process marked a distinct new direction that helped draw a majority-minority Congressional District and launch Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley to office.

Join Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, the Drawing Democracy Coalition, and the Drawing Democracy Fund for a discussion of what redistricting means for our democracy and racial equity in the Commonwealth.

Zoom information will be sent via email in advance of the session.
