INFORMATION ON JUNE 10 MEETING : Please join us for our regular twice-monthly meeting. This will be an important meeting, in which we will plan our activities for the coming year and a program to propose to the ODC board, together with a budget. The board has asked action teams to provide their plans for the coming year and for the action team leads to participate in the planning retreat June 15. We need and very much welcome your input! Please come with ideas for how we can continue building support for redistricting reform. We also encourage any of our active members to step forward to lead the group. Jennifer has been serving as interim director with the able support of Terry Landers since Brenda and Bev stepped down, but we would love to find someone who wants to lead (or co-lead) the local group this year. Please contact Jennifer (bremer.jennifer@gmail.com; 301-955-6333) if you are potentially interested in leading or co-leading.

The ODC FEAT regularly meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month. Our meetings combine information-sharing, what is happening on the redistricting front in North Carolina, with concrete-action to advance fair voting maps in North Carolina. Our working session might include planning for future events, preparing promotional material, post carding/letter writing, etc. Join us as often as you can. All interested persons are welcome.

Constrained Redistricting program

The League's first presentation of our "Constrained Redistricting" program to the Democratic Caucus of the General Assembly this morning was a great success. Fifteen legislators and 10 staff people attended.

Jennifer Bremer presented a slide show explaining the proposal and answered questions from the legislators. Representative Verla Insko arranged for the room in the Legislative Office Building and invited the legislators. Brenda Rogers and Beverly Kawalec provided logistical support.

We were all very pleased with the interest and attention of the legislators. It was an encouraging beginning to our state League project funded by our national League grant.
