Guest Speakers - Annastacia Belladonna-Carrera, Executive Director of Common Cause Minnesota and Eva Ichkhanian, Minnesota lead for OFA/All On The Line

Annastacia Belladonna-Carrera, Executive Director of Common Cause Minnesota, will speak about redistricting reform in Minnesota.

Minnesota needs redistricting reform now to avoid either one-party map-making or resorting to the Minnesota Supreme Court for a lengthy process of resolving differences should we continue to have divided government.

Rep. Ginny Klevorn (DFL - 44A) introduced a carefully crafted Districting Reform bill in the legislature. Several other bills are also active in the legislature. Annastacia Belladonna-Carrera will explain what those bills include, where they are now, and how we get the good redistricting that we need.

On the national scene, well-known activists are working to prevent gerrymandering. Arnold Schwarzenegger is promoting #FairMaps, and Barack Obama and Eric Holder have just created All On The Line as a group to promote fair redistricting in 2021.

Eva Ichkhanian, Minnesota lead for OFA/All On The Line, will give a brief overview of that effort here in Minnesota.
