Redistricting Reform Report 11/15/2018

The new legislature will meet for the first time on Tuesday, 20 November 2018, for Organization Day. 

We will soon learn who the new players are in the committees necessary for legislative action to pass redistricting reform, but we need to let our legislators know we need reform!  

Elbridge Gerry Will be There – Will You?

ATTEND

ATTEND the Indiana Coalition for Independent Redistricting Organization Day Rally at the State House next Tuesday, Nov. 20th at 12:30 p.m. on the Capitol Ave. steps at the State House.

BE THERE WEARING YOUR LEAGUE BUTTON! 

And don’t forget to bring a sign (unmounted – no sticks allowed inside the State House). 

We’ll have a local actor playing the father of gerrymandering, Elbridge Gerry and musicians from Musicians Local #3 will warm us up with upbeat music.  We must gather a large crowd to remind lawmakers that Hoosiers support an end to gerrymandering and that time is running out to pass significant reform!

All IN For Democracy is the coalition between Common Cause and the League of Women Voters. This is OUR coalition and we need your support to succeed!

Call Governor Holcomb: 317-232-4567  or email at https://www.in.gov/gov/2752.htm

During his 2016 campaign, Governor Holcomb said that he supported redistricting reform and hoped that it would be in place before the next round of electoral map drawing in 2021.  Ask him to make that happen by publicly announcing his support for redistricting reform—specifically for a transparent and bipartisan process that puts citizens, not politicians, in charge of redistricting.
