Citizen Dialogue: Gerrymandering II
Date and time
October 18, 2018 from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
About this event
Most of us have strong opinions one way or the other, and in this time of personalized information streams, sometimes it is hard to understand why smart people can think so differently on the issue of Redistricting/Gerrymandering.
The center is offering a chance to hear smart people on both sides of Michigan's Proposal 2 present what they actually think and why, both with each other and then directly with the audience.
Join us at Wayne State University's Macomb Education Center, where Brian Dickerson of the Detroit Free Press will moderate a dialogue. This time, because of the gerrymandering proposal (Prop 2) on the November ballot, we're revisiting gerrymandering and representative government.
Here is the proposal's ballot wording:
"A proposed constitutional amendment to establish a commission of citizens with exclusive authority to adopt district boundaries for the Michigan Senate, Michigan House of Representatives and u.s. congress, every 10 years."
