Ward 6 Virtual Community Conversation on Redistricting – Tuesday, October 26
October 26 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join the Ward 6 Dems, the Hill Rag, the NoMa/H Street Civic Association, CM Elissa Silverman (chair of the DC Council’s subcommittee on redistricting), and CM Charles Allen Tuesday night, October 26 at 8:00 p.m. for a community conversation on redistricting.
The Census data is in and DC is in the midst of our decennial redistricting process. Although every Ward has grown since 2010, Ward 6 has grown explosively and will have to shed approximately 18,000 residents, most of whom will likely become residents of Ward 7 or Ward 8. This is an issue that will affect everyone, regardless of political party or affiliation.
CM Allen will open the session with a brief presentation on how redistricting will affect Ward 6 particularly, then CM Silverman will give a presentation about why redistricting is necessary and how the process works. After that, we will move into a facilitated conversation and open Q&A where you can get your questions answered and share your thoughts and ideas with the Council members.
Date: Tuesday, October 26
Time: 8:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Location: Virtual, Zoom link provided upon registration
We will record the session, and it will be posted on our website later this week.
Thank you to our event co-sponsors the Hill Rag and the NoMa/H Street Civic Association.
