    You know that gerrymandering thing we're all working to eliminate in our nation? Well, California is leading the pack. Come join us to learn about California's Citizens Redistricting Commission (CRC). Stan Forbes, Chair of the CRC from 2011 - 2017, will be at our meeting to talk about the CRC's process, accomplishments, challenges and outreach to other states and, of course, to answer your questions.

    We'll also dive into supporting our VA House of Delegates Candidate Karen Mallard and the second VA candidate we'll be supporting (check your inbox tomorrow for an email telling you who this candidate is!)

    See you on July 13th!
