LWVUS is urging all Leagues to hold a Day of Action on redistricting on Thursday, April 29th. In New York State, we will be organizing a Virtual People’s Hearing and inviting members of the public and our partner organizations to “testify” about why redistricting matters to them and their community. We will be inviting members of the Legislature and the full Redistricting Commission to watch this webinar. The League will collect written comments from anyone who wishes to provide them to share with both the Legislature and the Commission.
The People’s Hearing will also allow public participants to provide oral comments during the hearing. More information on selection of testifiers and format of the hearing will be released in the coming weeks.
The hearing will take place on April 29th, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm and will be available via Zoom webinar.
