April 10, 2021 2-4 pm, will be the date and time for this year's Redistricting Forum. The planning committee is hard at work contacting speakers and creating workshops. Our last Redistricting Summit attracted 250 registrants and great speakers. Given the importance of redistricting (and potential gerrymandering) this year, if you care about our Democracy, you won't want to miss it. SHARE THIS EVENT WITH YOUR FRIENDS!
- Defining fair redistricting
- What is gerrymandering & how is it done?
- NH's tangled history with gerrymandering
- What's happening in NH to ensure fair maps in 2021
- How to get involved in the effort for fair, nonpartisan & transparent maps
Our Keynote Speaker will be Ellen Freidin, who led a citizen’s initiative to amend the Florida Constitution to establish strict rules for the drawing of legislative and Congressional district lines. After four years of gathering signatures and campaigning for passage, what followed was six years of fierce litigation to enforce the amendments and to fight off four separate federal court challenges to the amendments.
The event is free, but we want to make sure it gets on your calendar! RSVP below, and you will receive more info when it becomes available.

RESOURCES ON REDISTRICTING & GERRYMANDERING!
We're preparing materials for you to dive deeper into the wonky -- and somewhat murky -- world of redistricting and gerrymandering. This page will be available just prior to the Redistricting Forum.
