Behind the Lines: Redistricting & Gerrymandering Explained Fast Class
Thursday, April 14, 6:30 p.m., Main Library
With the 2020 census in the books, both the City Council and state legislature have worked to redraw district lines in Louisville and across the state. Redistricting is mandated by the U.S. Constitution to reflect changes in population, but when does it become “gerrymandering?” What is the difference between that and redistricting? How can you have a voice in the process?
Dee Pregliasco, the president of Kentucky League of Women Voters, will be one of the two instructors. The other instructor is Dr. Charlie Zhang, a professor in both the Department of Geographic & Environmental Sciences, and the Department of Urban Planning & Public Affairs at UofL.
