***UPDATE – FIND THE CONVERSATION WITH SUSAN McENTIRE AND SUSAN REARDON HERE!
Join us for the 23rd episode of Answering the Call with Stacey Reardon and Susan McEntire, the California Assembly leads on the redistricting process. Every 10 years, after the collection of the decennial census data, states redraw their state and congressional district lines. These districts determine how communities are represented at the local, state, and federal levels. Redistricting determines who appears on your ballot, where you can vote, and can influence whether your elected officials respond to your needs. Redistricting is vulnerable to gerrymandering – the intentional manipulation of the redistricting process. Come learn more about the process, the impact on our democracy, and how you can advocate for fair maps, accountability and transparency!
