Description

Tour the eastern edge of District 1 to hear about gerrymandering, redistricting, and how the Democracy Act can reform the system.

About this Event

Meet at Armstrong Center and board a bus to be guided through the ins and outs of District 1, gerrymandering, redistricting and the much-needed reform of the Democracy Act.

  • Dr. Kimberly Martin, assistant professor in political science and international relations at Georgia Southern University Armstrong campus, will define Gerrymandering, how it differs from redistricting and why it matters.
  • Pat Byrd, chair of Fair Districts GA, a nonpartisan organization dedicated to reforming the redistricting system in Georgia, will outline the Democracy Act, why it makes sense for Georgia and what voters can do to support it.

End with a postcard writing party back at Armstrong in support of the Democracy Act.
