Join the American Constitution Society for a panel discussion on Bethune-Hill v. Virginia State Board of Elections and McCrory v. Harris, two redistricting cases argued before the Supreme Court this term. Topics discussed will include the implications of these two cases, previous Supreme Court cases on redistricting, and the effects of racial and partisan gerrymandering on representation in our democratic institutions. Our panelists are Marcia Johnson-Blanco, co-director of the Voting Rights Project for the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and Professor Guy-Uriel Charles. Professor Jedediah Purdy will moderate. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the American Constitution Society. For more information, please contact Michael Manset at michael.manset@duke.edu.
