Unwinding the Remap: a discussion of Illinois' legislative redistricting process
Join The Daily Line reporter Joel Ebert for a lunch time discussion breaking down the highlights from nearly 50 hours of redistricting hearings lawmakers have led since mid-March.
The once-every-decade effort to redraw Illinois’ political boundaries of federal and legislative districts is complicated and contentious. To better understand the history of redistricting, the process and the stakes at play, Joel will speak with Kent Redfield, a professor emeritus of political science at the University of Illinois at Springfield, and Griselda Vega Samuel, the Midwest regional counsel for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
