Fair Districts Community Forum - Lillington

There will be a community forum to inform voters about gerrymandering and why we must end this corrupt practice now, before redistricting begins after the 2020 Census.

This forum will explain how gerrymandering works and more importantly, how it is undermining our democracy, how we can end it, and what you, the voter, can do about it. Please join us for a stimulating, nonpartisan, and eye-opening discussion on one of the most critical issues facing our state.

Sponsored by Fair Districts NC and the North Carolina Council of Churches
