Leader’s Roundtable: Redistricting Battles (Hybrid)

September 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Do the Right Thing? Thanks to Sondra for this topic. Here in New York, Democrats currently have the power to influence the re-districting process. In Sondra’s words, “Should the Democrats fight to win with the stakes so high or follow their basic guidelines? Is losing too dangerous or is not following norms you support more important?”

Bring your lunch and join Leader Dr. Nori Rost and members for an engaging round-table discussion on the issues of the day and recommended readings.
