“The Horrors of Gerrymandering”: A Halloween Campaign Update on Congressional Redistricting Reform in Ohio

Since the last redistricting process in 2011, voters by a wide margin have passed two Ohio constitutional amendments aimed at ending political party gerrymandering in this state. As of today, the special commission established to draft new state representative districts has drawn new maps that ignore the guidelines of the amendment. 

These “horrors” will be reviewed at the Forum, and Catherine Turcer, executive director of Common Cause Ohio, and other redistricting reformers will outline what citizens can do to rectify this refusal by a Republican controlled General Assembly to obey Ohio law. As usual, time will be set aside for questions and comments by Forum participants.

Join the meeting via Zoom.

Community Issues Forum

People interested in issues confronting the Greater Cincinnati community are regulars at the Community Issues Forum, a long time initiative supported by cathedral’s outreach budget. Forums are held September through May,  generally held twice a month on Thursdays at noon.

Bill Woods and Ed Burdell are the Forum coordinators. They administer the program through their nonprofit, Applied Information Resources, Inc. 

Currently, forums are being held virtually. Programs include time for questions and answers.
