On September 16th, Common Cause Georgia will begin a two month tour around the state focused on the issue of gerrymandering. The tour will offer a brief history of gerrymandering in Georgia, a discussion of current problems with our redistricting process, and a training session for citizens interested in pushing local redistricting reforms.  

“This grassroots, citizen engagement will help us build a volunteer-based arm, which will help with both defensive and reform redistricting legislation. In addition to inviting the public, local and state elected officials are encouraged to attend as a means of education on this important issue,” stated Sara Henderson, Executive Director of Common Cause Georgia.
