Learn about
REDISTRICTING 
at our GENERAL TENANTS MEETING  
  • Wednesday, November 16, 2011 
  • at 8 PM 
  • in the Community Room. 


"Redistricting" means drawing the lines to determine each electoral district - to elect members of the U.S. Congress as well as for State offices.  It happens every 10 years when the Census Bureau comes up with its report.  How it happens determines whether those who represent us will be the "same old same old" incumbents, or people who will really speak for us.  (Sometimes they are in fact the same, but not always!)  


Come and learn
  • how it affects us as tenants, as Upper West Siders, as neighbors, as New Yorkers
  • what we can do to affect the process of redistricting.
