Urban League hosts series of ‘Redistricting 101’ town hall meetings
For the first time in 40 years, Georgia will not get any new congressional seats based on the latest federal census count. As a result, political power could shift in some Georgia counties when Georgia lawmakers begin redistricting later this year.
The Urban League is hosting a series of one-hour town hall meetings beginning this week to help people understand the impact of redistricting. The first town hall will be in Atlanta at 6 p.m. on Thursday and also broadcast virtually. Panelists and attendees will discuss the impact a political power shift could have on people’s everyday lives and how each citizen can get involved to influence these processes.
