Now that the 2020 Census has concluded, the next step is to look at how Oregon will be redistricted. Redistricting has significant political and financial implications throughout the state. Our panel of engaging and knowledgeable speakers will share why redistricting is critical for Oregon and how it will affect Oregon’s communities, especially rural areas and under-represented groups. The panel will also examine what philanthropy can do to ensure a fair, equitable and inclusive redistricting process for all Oregonians.
