From Senator Jim Kyle and the LWV
As you may know, the Tennessee General Assembly is undergoing the once-a-decade process of redrawing the statewide districts to reflect the growing and shifting population. In order to raise awareness about this important process, the League of Women Voters of Tennessee is currently holding a contest to see which citizen of Tennessee can draw the best Congressional, State Senate and State House maps. Below is an invitation to a screening of the documentary Gerrymandering this Wednesday at The Evergreen Theater in Memphis. I encourage you to attend, and to explore www.tnmapitout.org.
The League of Women Voters of Tennessee invites the public to a free screening of Gerrymandering, a documentary that takes a nonpartisan approach to educating citizens about the implications of redistricting – the redrawing of congressional and state electoral boundaries based on new census data. The documentary will be screened on Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 6:30 p.m. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Location: The Evergreen Theatre
1705 Poplar Avenue
Time: Wednesday, Oct. 12
Film – 6:30 p.m.
Cost: The event is free and open to the public.
