Gerrymandering, the practice of drawing districts to favor one political party or racial group, skews election results, makes races less competitive, hurts communities of color and thwarts the will of the voters. Democracy should work for all citizens, and this practice makes many Americans feel that their voices do not matter. Instead of drawing a line in our neighborhoods, let’s learn how to draw the line on this unfair advantage, which weakens our impact and our ability to initiate change and progress.
In partnership with the Institute for Community Engagement and Civic Leadership, join us to learn about gerrymandering, the history of redistricting in America and how it has disproportionally affected communities of color. Our engaging discussion will feature a high-profile group of expert panelists, including special guest moderator and CNN analyst, Laura Coates.
Standing together in solidarity in the midst of racial divide continues to be an effective path forward. Community College of Philadelphia stands together in solidarity, and we stand together with you.
