**This program is hosted by our partner, Funders' Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP), who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.**
The 2021-2022 redistricting cycle that follows the 2020 Census offers communities an opportunity to address systemic inequities and achieve fair distribution of resources and representation for the next decade. Racial gerrymandering (the drawing of district lines so as to dilute an ethnic community’s fair representation) has occurred through redistricting processes across the country over decades; it is a modern-day form of voter suppression and a tool that reinforces institutional racism.
- Implications of redistricting on racial equity
- How groups are organizing to ensure fair representation
- How funders can engage to support this critical, nonpartisan, democracy work
- Prentiss Haney, Executive Director, Ohio Student Association
- Rachel Mayes, Executive Director, Southern Echo
- Evan Bacalao (Moderator), Program Officer, Open Society Foundations
