Deep Dive into Redistricting. The workshop provides information on the issues surrounding redistricting nationwide and in Virginia, the status of current court cases, an update on the recent General Assembly session, and information on lobbying and other actions planned in Virginia for the coming year. New district lines will be drawn after the 2020 census, and partisan gerrymandering is not only unfair to voters but works against us making progress on other League positions. Brian Cannon, the workshop leader, is Director of ONEVIRGINIA2021.

The workshop is free, but registration is required. To reserve a space, please contact Carolyn Rude Some League members will stay for lunch at the White Oak Tavern.
