February: The Census, Redistricting and Gerrymandering
Every decade, our voting districts are modified according to the census data. While every district has roughly the same population, they are often drawn (or gerrymandered) in such a way to favor the incumbent, a political party, or any group. Does this serve us? This conversation examines the way districts are created and possibilities of improvement. With the 2020 Census upon us, find out more about why it is important.
