Redrawing Texas: Who Chooses Whom?
A virtual panel discussion on redistricting in the State of Texas
Hosted on Zoom
Monday, November 1, 2021

As a result of the 2020 U.S. Census, the State of Texas received two additional seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. To accommodate these new House seats, the State Legislature is tasked with redistricting. Our expert panelists will explain this standard process that takes place every decade and discuss the current efforts to "redraw Texas," exploring the question, "Who chooses whom?"
