Panel Discussion | When Redistricting Becomes Gerrymandering: How Can Districts Be Drawn Equitably?

October 29 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT

Free
A rectangular grid with cells in a rainbow of colors. A faint black line meanders across the grid, like the lines delineating district boundaries.

With the 2020 Census coming to a close, the redistricting process will begin anew for every state in the country. How can districts be determined in a fair and unbiased process so that partisan gerrymandering is eliminated?

Join us via Zoom for an examination of the redistricting process, how gerrymandering can be detected through mathematical models, and a discussion of what constitutes a fair, non-partisan determination of district boundaries.

Panelists include Julia Gomez, attorney at ACLU Southern California; M. Andre Parvenu, 2010 California Citizens Redistricting Commissioner; Dr. Ellen Veomett, Professor of Mathematics at Saint Mary’s College of California; and artist Lordy Rodriguez.
