Are You Ready For Redistricting? Why It Matters To You

August 24, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Is your community ready for congressional & state legislative redistricting? How will your congressional and state legislative districts change later this year? Do your local governments redraw county, town, and city boundaries next year? How can you get involved and make an impact before decisions are made? After each decennial census, every state and local government electing legislators from single-member districts must redraw district boundaries to comply with federal, state, and local laws governing population equality, minority voting rights, and other criteria. Find out more by joining us for an informative webinar to find out about redistricting in the state and in your communities presented by Jeffrey Wice from New York Law School.

Jeffrey M. Wice is an Adjunct Professor and Senior Fellow at New York Law School where he directs the New York Census & Redistricting Institute.  He is now working on his fifth census and redistricting cycle. In past years, he organized census outreach efforts and served as redistricting counsel to 5 State Assembly Speakers and 4 State Senate Democratic leaders. Last year, he helped coordinate census efforts for New York’s counties as an advisor to the New York Counts 2020 coalition.  During the 2000 census cycle, he was counsel to President Bill Clinton’s member of the U.S. Census Monitoring Board. He is also currently a counsel in the New York State Assembly and the co-editor of the National Conference of State Legislatures’ recently published 2020 Redistricting Redbook, a comprehensive handbook on the census and redistricting processes. Active for many years with the National Conference of State Legislatures, he is currently the staff chair of NCSL’s Redistricting and Elections Committee. Jeff also served as counsel to several New York City Council redistricting commissions and to other county and local governments across the state.
