League of Women Voters mobilize for Fair Districts

 

Fair Districts NJ is a non-partisan coalition fighting to reform New Jersey's redistricting process.  The League of Women Voters believes that redistricting should be impartial and transparent.  It should maximize public input in the process and put the power in the hands of the voters. Redistricting is happening in 2021. We need to organize now.

The League of Women Voters of Berkeley Heights, New Providence & Summit will host Helen Kioukis, LWVNJ Program Associate.  She will lay out the problem, offer solutions and call to action citizens who want to ensure that NJ Congressional and Legislative Districts are drawn in a way that is transparent, representative and impartial.
