Pryor and Democratic members of Election Committee meet community need with virtual redistricting town hall
INDIANAPOLIS – State Rep. Cherrish Pryor (D-Indianapolis) today announced a virtual redistricting town hall on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m. EST. Pryor and the Democratic members of the Indiana Elections and Apportionment Committee will join New America Indianapolis to allow for additional public input on proposed redistricting maps.
“The public has made it abundantly clear that they want districts that put community interest over partisan politics, increased transparency and the opportunity for ample input on maps that will shape the next decade,” Pryor said.
“Nonpartisan analysis of the House Republicans’ new maps makes it clear there is little to no improvement in the state's long-standing practice of gerrymandering. Hoosiers deserve better.
“It is more important than ever that the public participate and make their voice heard in this once-in-a-decade process. The maps under consideration will determine the future of Indiana’s political landscape for the next decade and beyond.”
Leader Phil GiaQuinta (D-Fort Wayne) and Democratic members of the Indiana Senate, who are expecting Republican Senate maps on Sept. 21, will also be in attendance. This meeting will be free of charge and open to the public.
