The Center for Law and Social Justice at Medgar Evers College Hosts Redistricting Presentation to Educate and Empower Black Communities

Event Designed to Spur Equitable Districts by Encouraging Community Participation

NEW YORK, NY–With a mandate to create a fair system, in 2021, the New York State Independent Redistricting Commission and the New York State Legislature will redraw congressional, state, and local legislative districts in the Empire state. These voting maps will determine the quality of our representation, and ultimately, the future of New York, particularly in vulnerable communities. 

The Center for Law and Social Justice at Medgar Evers College (CLSJ) is committed to ensuring that New York City’s districts are drawn equitably. On January 27, 2021 at 2 pm, CLSJ will host a community conversation aimed at educating Black New Yorkers and progressive allies about the redistricting process and how to participate so that communities of African descent can receive their fair share of resources and political representation.

WHERE: Zoom (Registration Required)

WHEN: 2 PM
