On March 2-3, Common Cause, the Campaign Legal Center, and Duke University’s Center for Political Leadership, Innovation, and Service (POLIS) are co-hosting a daylong conference highlighting efforts around the country to end the undemocratic practice of drawing legislative districts for political advantage, also known as “gerrymandering.” Panel discussions will feature leaders of national and state advocacy campaigns to reform our broken redistricting system. Ahead of their publication in Election Law Journal, winners of Common Cause’s “Gerrymander Standard” writing competition will discuss their innovative ideas to create a judicial standard for measuring political gerrymanders.
