July 25 General Meeting (1:00-2:30 PM) On Zoom

 

SLAY THE DRAGON 
Part II: Beat the Gerrymander!

Date: Saturday, July 25
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 pm

 

 

ONLINE MEETING
Join us for Slay the Dragon (Part II: Beat the Gerrymander!). We will be joined by Stan Forbes, Commissioner, inaugural California Citizens Redistricting Commission (2011 - 2020). Stan will tell us about the process, accomplishments and challenges as California undertook redistricting in 2011 and what to expect in 2021. In addition, Stan has worked with other states, including Michigan and Virginia, as they developed independent redistricting commissions.

*NOTE: Your confirmation email will come from Phyllis Cauley <no-reply@zoom.us>.

PRE-MEETING VIEWING
We highly recommend that you watch "Slay the Dragon" - the acclaimed documentary about gerrymandering - before our meeting. Your donation of $6.99 to rent the movie supports Sister District candidates fighting for fair maps and progressive change.

An anonymous donor has offered up to 10 paid "scholarships" to watch the movie. Those who accept will be asked to share the "Slay the Dragon" link on their chosen social media platform. Just reply to this email and request the "scholarship"!

 

 

We had our last in-person meeting on February 22 - Part I: Beat the Gerrymander! We watched "Suppressed: The Fight to Vote" together and it was very impactful. If you haven't seen this documentary, we recommend you take a look.

 

 

We look forward to seeing you on the 25th!
