CPT-Gerrymandering

The Coffee Party USA is a hosting partner with the National Week of Conversation event, which runs April 20-28, 2018.

We will be using the guides created by Living Room Conversations to get the ball rolling on our quest to encourage the use of civility and reason all across America. This particular conversation is "The Census, Redistricting and Gerrymandering." 

Every decade, our voting districts are modified according to the census data. While every district has roughly the same population, they are often drawn (or gerrymandered) in such a way to favor the incumbent, a political party, or any group. But does this serve us? And what can be done? This conversation examines the way districts are done and we explore how it could work better. It’s wonky, yes. But it’s also the foundation of our governance system.

Part of what makes Coffee Party Talks special is the commitment of our participants to these conversation agreements:

  • Be curious and open to learning. 
  • Show respect and suspend judgment. 
  • Find common ground and note differences. 
  • Be authentic and welcome that from others. 
  • Be purposeful and to the point. 
  • Own and guide the conversation.

Sign up and join the conversation! Saturday, April 21st 1-2:30 p.m. Eastern.
