967 Spring 2019 Making Every Vote Count: Why Virginia Needs Fair Redistricting Reform
Monday, 11:50–1:15, Apr. 8
Loudoun
Instructor: Deborah Mayer

OneVirginia2021 volunteers will present a screening of the documentary GerryRIGGED, followed by an in-depth discussion of the why, how, and why-now of fair redistricting reform, including pending court cases at the state and national levels. OneVirginia2021 is a multi-partisan, largely volunteer organization working throughout the commonwealth to talk with fellow Virginians about gerrymandering and the improvements that fair redistricting reform can have on our ability to govern ourselves successfully. Specifically, OneVirginia2021 is advocating for the adoption of an amendment to the Virginia Constitution that will establish an independent, impartial commission to apply a fair and transparent process in drawing political districts after the 2020 census.
Deborah Mayer is an active volunteer with the Fairfax Local Action Group for OneVirginia2021, which is working to end gerrymandering in Virginia before the next re-districting in 2021. She is also a licensed attorney in the Commonwealth of Virginia and practices primarily in northern Virginia.
