5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join LFIA on Monday, April 19th at 5:00 p.m. as we host a member of the California Citizens Redistricting Commission, Derric Taylor. Commissioner Taylor is one of fourteen California residents selected to redraw political boundaries in our state.
Every ten years, California must redraw the boundaries of its Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly, and State Board of Equalization districts after the federal government publishes updated census information. This job is done by the voter-approved California Citizens Redistricting Commission.
Redistricting work directly affects equity outcomes in our state. How district boundaries are configured can make the difference between empowering and maximizing voters’ voices or minimizing and muting them.
Commissioner Taylor will introduce the Commission and its duties, discuss the importance of redistricting, and explain how the Commission hopes to gather public input and increase participation in the redistricting process.
Monday, April 19 at 5:00 p.m.
This event is free and open to the public.
