LWV Kent honored at NAACP Freedom Fund Dinner

Thank you to the Portage County NAACP for honoring the League of Women Voters of Kent with its Social Justice Award at this past weekend’s Freedom Fund Dinner. The League of Women Voters of Kent was recognized for its tireless work to collect signatures and educate voters in 2017 about Issue 1 which passed and will provide a fair redistricting process for Ohio’s Congressional districts. Issue 1 passed with 75% of the vote.

Why this is our top legislative priority:

The next U. S. census will take place in 2020. The information gathered will be used by the Georgia legislature to adjust Georgia State and Federal legislative districts. Over the next two years, LWVGA will work to pass legislation that will ensure the fairness of that redistricting process and minimize the chance that legislators will gerrymander Georgia districts.
