Join us for a viewing of the film “GerryRIGGED” followed by a conversation with one of the Co-Chairs of One Virginia 2021. “GerryRIGGED” shows how computer software has taken this ancient practice to a new level, in which lines can be drawn with an amazing level of precision, leading to lack of competition, voter apathy, hyper-partisanship and. ultimately, the frustrating gridlock that grips our political system today. GerryRIGGED also spotlights efforts across the country to return power to the voters through redistricting reform.

The OneVirginia2021 Foundation is a 501(c)3 civic non-profit dedicated to raising awareness, conducting research, and holding educational programming on redistricting. The foundation has held several redistricting forums with legal, legislative, and academic experts around Virginia. We continue to speak to citizens and organizations around Virginia to spread information about this effort.
