Join Alliance for Justice on Tuesday, February 23rd at 2 PM ET for a members-only webinar on the dos and don’ts for nonprofits and foundations to engage in redistricting reform in 2021.
Redistricting is essential to making sure that every community, and the people in those communities, are fairly represented. It is a critical opportunity to ensure that all the voices — and the power — of communities are not diluted or intentionally split apart.
This unique webinar for members accompanies the re-release of two Bolder Advocacy factsheets to help prepare partners for redistricting: Influencing the Redistricting Process by Standing Up for Your Community and Mapping the Future: The Redistricting Process and Private Foundations. The first is aimed at how nonprofit and community activists can lobby and advocate around redistricting effectively within the rules. The second focuses on how foundations — both private and public — can fund strong advocacy by community groups to ensure that the lines on the map are fair and represent who they are and how their community works.
This webinar will discuss these two resources and provide an opportunity for AFJ members to share their redistricting priorities and ask questions of our Bolder Advocacy team. We will also feature a spotlight on the Advancement Project California's work on redistricting reform. Whether you’re leading a redistricting advocacy initiative or have questions about what you can say throughout the process, please join us to learn more about redistricting and how AFJ can support your advocacy efforts.
