Lecture: Beyond Gerrymandering and Polarization
4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
NYU Washington, DC
1307 L Street Northwest
For years, political insiders have known how powerful redistricting can be for elected officials to protect friends and undermine opponents. Both parties have exploited the ability to redistrict, minimizing the role of voters in the political process. By gerrymandering the districts, legislators and their political cronies have used redistricting to choose their voters, instead of the other way around. This program aims to look beyond gerrymandering and heightened political polarization to determine what can be done to improve the political process and put agency back in the hands of the voting public.
