Event description

Description

We are delighted to have Dr. Jason Kelly, Political Science Professor at Virginia Tech, come to RVA to discuss very timely subject before November's elections.

Dr. Kelly is an expert in how redistricting procedures across states affects the degree to which legislative districts are gerrymandered to benefit one party over the other, as well as incumbents over their would-be challengers.

Joining Dr. Kelly in this non-partisan discussion will be Brian Cannon, executive director of OneVirginia2021. OneVirginia2021 is a leader in advocating for fair redistricting in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
