FIGHTING FOR THE MINORITY VOTE
Georgia Redistricting 2011:
--A TEST CASE FOR SUBURBAN AMERICA?

Georgia state lawmakers will gather in Atlanta this summer to redraw Georgia's political boundaries. Learn how redistricting could increase or diminish minority voting power throughout the state and what civic activists are doing to assure that new redistricting lines don't further dilute the power of black, Hispanic and Asian populations.

What's the connection between Georgia's Voter ID and anti-immigrant laws and redistricting? What can communities of color do to protect their interests during the redistricting process? How could the results of Georgia's redistricting process affect the voting rights of minorities for the next decade and beyond?

What: Press briefing with ethnic media

Where: Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Downtown
Pacific Room, 2nd Floor
275 Baker Street, Atlanta, Georgia 30313

When: Tuesday, July 19th, 11 am to 1 pm (lunch included)
