Learn about CITY redistricting this Thursday, May 5th
on Zoom at 7:30 PM
The redistricting maps that determine who represents us in the
state and federal government were recently invalidated by New York Courts. But the CITY’s redistricting process is run by
a commission that follows a different set of rules. The deadline for the local Districting
Commission to release the first draft maps is June 7, 2022.
The Commission’s decision will
affect us for the next decade.
A lot of what we do is affected by who represents us
in the City Council. Until last year we
were represented by Mark Levine. He became Manhattan Borough President and now
we’re represented by Shaun Abreu, still in District 7, with its office on W.
141st Street. Meanwhile,
District 6 goes up to West 96th Street.
Citizen's Union is presenting a workshop on:
- The basics of Council redistricting
- Why it's important
- An overview of how maps are drawn
- How to create our own maps
- How to testify effectively at the Districting Commission.
