Cafe 7: april 16 Recap

The Cafe 7 event on April 16 was a great and informative presentation by Joe Bia about the Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) and process. The IRC will set our legislative districts in Arizona for the next 10 years and is really important for us to pay attention to and take part in. Ephraim Infante, AZ Democratic Party, also spoke with us about a new tool called Representable that can help us document and map our communities so we can share this with the IRC.
