We Count! Redistricting Breakfast Workshop Recap
About 35 people attended the We Count! Breakfast Workshop on Redistricting Wednesday including several women legislators. Among them were Sen. Nan Orrock, Rep. Kathy Ashe, Rep. Margaret Kaiser, Rep. Elly Dobbs, Rep. Stephanie Stucky Benfield, Rep. Pat Gardner, and Rep. Simone Bell.
After a brief video on redistricting, panelists Larry Pellegrini, Georgia Rural Urban Summit, Nancy Abudu, American Civil Liberties Union, and Senator Horacena Tate gave a non-partisan and informative overview of what's going on under the Gold Dome this week in terms of redistricting, and what that means for Georgia voters.
The event, moderated by Kelli Persons of the League of Women Voters, culminated in a lengthy Q and A session, which highlighted the growing public concern about the redistricting issue.
Huge thanks goes to all our panelists, the dynamic group of Georgia women legislators that attended, community members that attended, and Central Presbyterian Church, which graciously hosted the event.
