Webinar: Redistricting in San Francisco
7:00pm - 8:00pm
You may have heard of gerrymandering and the impacts it has on both state and federal elections - but could that also happen here in San Francisco? How can we as residents ensure a fair and equitable voting representation?
They’ll cover how the 2020 census increases the stakes and importance in the implementation of the data and redistricting, how past redistricting has impacted elections over the last 10 years, and how you can get involved in the redistricting process.
The City is currently in the middle of redrawing the Supervisorial district lines which will have major impacts on who could win future Supervisor elections. The district lines could change drastically - which is why now is the perfect time for you to get in the know!
Helping them foster this conversation are Vikrum Aiyer, Deputy Director at the National ACLU, Viva Mogi, San Francisco Elections Commissioner, and Byron Philhour, Ph.D., Political Data Scientist at RTBiQ.
This webinar is part of TogetherSF's ongoing civics series looking at how San Francisco’s government works and how you can get involved.
