Redistricting Conference for Fair Districts Brings Together Top National Experts & Reform Advocates at Duke University
On March 2-3, many of the nation's leading redistricting experts and reform advocates will gather at Duke University for a conference highlighting efforts around the country to end the undemocratic practice of drawing legislative districts for poltical advantage.
Redistricting Reform: Mapping Our Future is co-hosted by Common Cause, the Campaign Legal Center, and Duke University’s Center for Political Leadership, Innovation, and Service (POLIS). The conference will be livestreamed.
Panel discussions will feature prominent redistricting litigators and leaders of national and state advocacy campaigns to reform our broken redistricting system. Panelists will share and compare strategies that have brought about significant redistricting reforms across the nation.
Ahead of their publication in Election Law Journal, winners of Common Cause’s “Gerrymander Standard” writing competition will discuss their innovative ideas to create a judicial standard for measuring political gerrymanders.
