LWVFC Sponsors Redistricting Reform Forum

The Falls Church League of Women Voters is co-sponsoring a forum on partisan gerrymandering and redistricting reform that will be held on June 4 from 6:30 – 9 p.m. at George Mason University’s School of Policy, Government and International Affairs Arlington campus in room 120 of Hazel Hall, located at 3351 N. Fairfax Dr., Arlington.

The program is also sponsored by the Arlington chapter of the League of Women Voters, the Northern Virginia chapter of the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy and OneVirginia 2021, a coalition of organizations working to reform the way the state draws its legislative and congressional districts.

The featured speakers at the forum will be Brian Cannon, executive director of OneVirginia 2021, and Sara Fitzgerald, a member of the Falls Church League of Women Voters who serves on the redistricting task force of the organization. Frank Shahfroth, director of George Mason’s Center for State and Local Government Leadership, will serve as moderator for the discussion.

Topics of the forum will include the impact of redistricting on partisan politics, ideas for reforming the process, and how citizens can get more involved in seeking changes. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested and space is limited. For more information and to register, visit
