At our August General Meeting, John Marion of Common Cause Rhode Island reviewed the redistricting process in Rhode Island, and what concerns might arise from the current Rhode Island redistricting commission, officially called the "Special Commission on Reapportionment."
The Women's Caucus issued a press release, outlining our expectations for a fair and representative process. In addition to this action, there are other measures you can take.
