Redistricting is the process of drawing electoral district lines. This is the process that happens after the Census. Next year, April of 2020 to be exact, the government will begin counting every person in the country. After we get the count, states will begin the process of redrawing electoral lines. L. Joy brings Commissioner Maria Blanco of the California Citizens Redistricting Commission to the front of the class to discuss redistricting. Gaby Goldstein and Lyzz Schwegler of Sister District also join to discuss their work around state legislatures.
