A virtual panel discussion with experts in the redistricting process
With the 2020 Census coming to a close, the redistricting process will begin anew for every state in the country. How can districts be determined in a fair and unbiased process so that partisan gerrymandering is eliminated?
Join us via Zoom for an examination of the redistricting process, how gerrymandering can be detected through mathematical models, and a discussion of what constitutes a fair determination of district boundaries.
Panelists include Julia Gomez, attorney at ACLU of Southern California; M. Andre Parvenu, 2010 California Citizens Redistricting Commissioner; Dr. Ellen Veomett, Professor of Mathematics at Saint Mary's College of California; and artist Lordy Rodriguez. Moderated by Dianne Dec.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Lordy Rodriguez: Polar Democracy.
