Racism and Redistricting: How Unfair Maps Impact Communities of Color

6 - 7:30 pm

Online event: Facebook Live

League of Women Voters of Johnson County KS

Join us on October 8 for a powerful discussion on the role systemic racism plays in silencing voters of color and what's at stake in this year's election.

*This is a FREE, live event broadcast on LWVUS's Facebook Page.*

As the 2020 Census count comes to a close, states prepare for the 2021 redistricting cycle—but not all states will have maps drawn that truly represent voters. In 2019, the League of Women Voters of the United States launched the People Powered Fair Maps TM campaign in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. The campaign has prompted state-led actions to create transparent redistricting processes that involve citizens and ensure the needs of communities, rather than elected officials, are represented as districts maps are drawn.

On October 8, the League of Women Voters of the United States, along with LWV of Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia will host a discussion on the role systemic racism plays in silencing voters of color and how it’s shaped one of the most important processes for ensuring voters’ voices are heard. These community leaders will share information on the work being done to end some of the most egregious racial gerrymandering in the country—and what all is at stake in this year's election.

Join us to learn what you can do in your state and across the country to fight systemic racism by voting, being counted in the census, and getting involved in the redistricting process!

PROMO Says NO on 3

5:30 - 6:15 pm

Online Event

PROMO

Politicians have put forward the deceptive and deceitful Amendment 3 measure on the ballot this November— pretending it is about reform — when its real purpose is to gerrymander Missouri. It makes trivial reforms to trick voters, but puts into place a redistricting process more extreme than any other in America designed to let politicians draw their own maps and make themselves even less accountable to voters. Join PROMO and No on 3 Campaign to learn more about how Amendment 3 will hurt Missourians and how, together, we can defeat it.

Talking to People We Love About Racism

7 - 9 pm

Online Event

SURJ KC

As white folks in our relationships with other white folks-- family, friends, co-workers, neighbors--there are moments we must confront. Sooner or later, we will face a conversation that reinforces white supremacy.

A lot of the time, we understand the importance of contradicting these words and actions, but we don’t always know how to respond. There aren't many examples of how to challenge and hold others accountable. And what we often see modeled is rooted in argument and shaming, rather than a shared desire for growth. If we shut each other down, we'll never build the power we need.

To effectively grow a vast multi-identity movement to end white supremacy, we must engage and mobilize a significant number of white people to embrace and act upon an anti-racist agenda. And we must continue to love each other. This cannot happen unless we learn the difficult work of CALLING IN folks in a way that brings them to the table and engages. We want them to join our efforts to disrupt white supremacy in ourselves and the community at large.

At this 2-hour training workshop, we will dive deeper into learning what it looks like to “call in,” and we will take time to build an action plan with other folks in our movement. This training will include virtual break-out rooms for you to participate and share group discussion with other attendees, so please come prepared to participate.

**Registration is Required**
Sign up here: https://forms.gle/4TTNYs4F8h5X5Tvy5

You will receive the Zoom link to the email you've provided about 15 minutes before the training begins.
We are looking forward to being in community with you!

What's Next: What Are Our Priorities After the Nov. 3 General Election

12 noon - 2 pm

Empower Missouri

We know how crucial the November 3, 2020, General Election will be with the U.S. President, Missouri Governor, all 163 Missouri House seats, and half of the 34 Missouri Senate seats on the ballot. And then there’s the danger posed by Amendment 3, “Dirty Missouri”, which seeks to overturn the will of the people, expressed in passage of the CLEAN Amendment in 2018. Amendment 3 would impose the most radical form of partisan gerrymandering in the U.S. on our state. But we know this for certain: The work of racial justice advocacy must continue after November 3. The U.S. has a pre-existing condition, racial inequality, and this shapes outcomes in COVID-19 diagnoses/deaths, incarceration statistics, food and housing insecurity, and so much more. On Nov. 20, join us in the 2020 Racial Equity Summit, an online gathering of social justice advocates, to explore #What’sNext4Justice.
Thanks to the generous support of Maxine Clark and Bob Fox, registration for the Summit is free for all attendees.
