Redistricting

Redistricting

50 people participated in LWVSWIN's Gerrymander Meander on Thursday, September 5, starting at St.Lucas United Church of Christ, 33 W. Virginia Street. Evansville. 

Julia Vaughn of Common Cause Indiana came from Indianapolis to share updates and plans for redistricting reform in Indiana in 2020. Then participants travelled by car to Garvin Park -- followed by a one-mile walk through a checkerboard of districts back to the church -- to highlight how gerrymandering divides our neighborhoods to benefit politicians. The national League is putting together a People-Powered Fair Maps Campaign.
