From our friends at the Greenlining Institute comes this invitation:
Redistricting – the process of redrawing state election districts – is one of the most important political processes happening in 2011. It will determine whether your community has a voice in government for the next 10 years.
The Greenlining Institute has launched a state-wide civic engagement campaign to ensure that California’s low-income communities and communities of color are heard as decisions are being made. We will tour the state to host a series of educational workshops and interactive trainings to prepare community members to speak up and stay involved in this important process.
Community members like you know your communities best, and the Citizens Redistricting Commission needs to hear from you. Consider attending one of our educational workshops below and help draw lines that matter! We also encourage you to invite your friends, neighbors, and others in your network. RSVP to email@example.com for all events.
The event is scheduled 5-6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 10, at the Sunnyside Regional Library, 5566 E. Kings Canyon Road, in Fresno. For more information, visit any of the following links:
