Spreading the word about the harms of gerrymandering

Common Cause Ohio's 2019 Summer Intern Kanyinsola Oye took on an independent project all about the connection between gerrymandering and real-life problems in the local community. Through interviews with community leaders, she found a way to take the abstract political term and the show how the hurt it causes is real. In this presentation she shows how her project worked, and sets out steps for others to take similar action. She also discusses the Pledge to End Gerrymandering and shows how all Ohioans can step up to stand for #FairDistricts.
