Gerryrigged: Turning Democracy on Its Head
November 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
OneVirginia2021: Virginians for Fair Redistricting invites you to join us for a special screening of Gerryrigged: Turning Democracy on Its Head.
Gerrymandering, the process by which political district lines are drawn by the very politicians who stand to benefit by them, affects the fabric of our democracy in profound ways. Gerryrigged: Turning Democracy on Its Head examines its impact in this hour-long documentary, a partnership of WCVE (PBS) with OneVirginia2021: Virginians for Fair Redistricting. Learn how non-partisan reform efforts in Virginia can change this dangerous trend and return political power to the voters.
The film, with speaker Bill Oglesby, will be shown on Tuesday November 28, 2017, at 7:00 pm at the Historic Wayne Theater, 521 West Main St., Waynesboro VA. The event is free.
OneVirginia2021 is committed to education and advocacy, with a multi-partisan approach that includes Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. We believe that state and congressional districts belong to the citizens of our Commonwealth, and not to any legislator, political party, or special interest.
