This week on Talk Nation Radio: Undoing Gerrymandering. Our guest is Brian Cannon, executive director of FairMapsVA — that’s VA for Virginia — the website is http://fairmapsva.org
The organization is working on the Vote Yes campaign for a redistricting reform amendment. Before leaving to run the vote yes campaign, Brian was Executive Director of OneVirginia2021, which raised the issue of ending gerrymandering in Virginia. While in law school, Brian studied election law and was on one of the winning teams in the 2011 state-wide redistricting competition. We discuss the state of undoing gerrymandering in Virginia and around the United States.
