REDISTRICTING:

Select local Leagues across the state will be gearing up to share education on the very hot topic of Redistricting.

Our effort will include training League members to present Redistricting basics with small groups that they are associated. If a local group would like to schedule a presentation, we will provide a speaker to them.
