NY Civil Rights Groups Discuss Prison Based Gerrymandering At Townhall

 New York--Tonight, from 6-8pm the Coalition to End Prison Based Gerrymandering will be hosting a town hall meeting in conjunction with Assemblyman Jeffries at the central branch of the Brooklyn Public Library looking at the issue of redistricting and how prison populations are counted in the U.S. Census. The discussion will feature New York State Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries, who has sponsored a bill that would call for prisoners to be counted as residents of the communities where they lived at the time of their arrests, rather than as residents of the counties where they are incarcerated, Susan Lerner, Executive Director of Common Cause NY, Eddie Ellis Executive Director of the Center for NuLeadership on Urban Solutions at Medgar Evers College and other elected officials on the city and state level. The event is sponsored by Common Cause/NY, NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Citizens Union, Demos, The Bronx Defenders, The Drug Policy Alliance, New Kings Democrats, The Center for Law and Social Justice of Medgar Evers College, National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, and Citizen Action of New York.
