About the event
When elections don’t really matter because the district lines determine which party will be in control, the people don’t have a voice. Join us to hear from Sachin Chheda, Director and Co-Founder of the Fair Elections Project (https://www.fairelectionsproject.org/about-us/ ), as he discusses partisan gerrymandering, the harm it does to our democracy, and what can be done to end it.
FYI: The Fair Elections Project was involved in building the gerrymandering case that went to the Supreme Court (SC) recently. Sachin will talk about what they are doing to promote fair elections now that the SC decided that federal courts cannot end partisan gerrymandering.
