Join the Ward 6 Dems, the Hill Rag, the NoMa/H Street Civic Association, Councilmember Elissa Silverman (chair of the DC Council's subcommittee on redistricting), and Councilmember 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.
Councilmember Allen will open the session with a brief presentation on how redistricting will affect Ward 6 particularly, then Councilmember 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 Councilmembers.
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.
(You can also review details of the full process at Councilmember Silverman's website.)
