Rally for Redistricting Reform

As Indy’s robust events community returns to engagement AND a second wave of COVID-19 is occurring;
it is more important than ever to WEAR A MASK WHEN ATTENDING SOCIAL EVENTS!!!

Rally for Redistricting Reform

Thu, Jan 16, 2020 10:30 AM – Thu, Jan 16, 2020 2:00 PM Rally for Redistricting Reform

Where: Indiana State Library Indiana State Library 315 W Ohio St Indianapolis, Indiana 46202

Join us for our Lobby Day on Thursday, January 16th!

The 2020 General Assembly has started and it’s a short session this year. Our legislators will be packing it up and heading back home by early March. That leaves us very little time to reform redistricting before new maps are drawn in 2021.

TAKE ACTION
We hit the ground running on the first day of session with a very successful State House press conference to announce two redistricting reform bills being introduced by Senator John Ruckelshaus (R- Indianapolis).

At the press conference we were joined by a bipartisan team of legislators who pledged their support for redistricting reform by signing the End Gerrymandering Pledge – a national effort championed by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Eric Holder.

It’s extremely important we stay visible on this issue and continue to put redistricting reform at the top of the legislative agenda. First, write a letter to your Indiana lawmakers, then join us next Thursday to rally in Indianapolis!

WHAT: Redistricting Reform Lobby Day
WHEN: Thursday, January 16, 10:30 a.m.
WHERE: Indiana State Library, 315 West Ohio Street, History Reference Room

After the briefing you are encouraged to walk across the street to the State House and talk to your legislators about reform. It’s always best to call them in advance and make an appointment – you can find their office telephone numbers at https://www.commoncause.org/find-your-representative/
