The session is open to the public and may be accessed via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84318298776?pwd=K05FVm1lb2YzTFA1djZ4dndBaFg5Zz09
Yurij Rudensky, redistricting counsel at the Brennan Center’s Democracy Program will provide an overview of this important issue. His primary areas of focus at the Brennan Center are redistricting policy reform, race and redistricting jurisprudence, and bridging the scientific-legal gap.
As the League of Women Voters works to bring community voices to the redistricting process, Mr. Rudensky’s insights will help us think through how communities of interest can be defined in ways to draw political boundaries that lead to fair representation.
