CNJG is pleased to co-sponsor this webinar, hosted by the Funders Committee for Civic Participation.

The 2021-2022 redistricting cycle that follows the 2020 Census offers communities an opportunity to address systemic inequities and achieve fair distribution of resources and representation for the next decade. Racial gerrymandering (the drawing of district lines so as to dilute an ethnic community’s fair representation) has occurred through redistricting processes across the country over decades; it is a modern-day form of voter suppression and a tool that reinforces institutional racism.

Join FCCP and the Fair Representation in Redistricting initiative for an engaging panel discussion to understand the implications of redistricting on racial equity, how groups are organizing to ensure fair representation, and how funders can engage to support this critical, nonpartisan, democracy work.

Speakers:
Prentiss Haney, Executive Director, Ohio Student Association 
Evan Bacalao, Open Society Foundations (moderator)
