How much is gerrymandering the “problem behind the problem” of our current political, moral and economic upheavals in NC?
What’s being done about it?

Join Community UCC’s Economic Justice Task Force in an expanded discussion and exploration of the issue with Jane Pinsky of the NC Coalition for Lobbying and Government Reform. Jane has been director of the NC Coalition for Lobbying and Government Reform since 2007. The Coalition, in which Common Cause North Carolina is a key player, works to make government, at all levels, more open and accessible to the citizens of North Carolina. It works on ethics, transparency, and redistricting reform.
