The mission of the Census and Redistricting Committee is to support Census 2020. Members Jeanne Crevier and Julieta Crosby—representing League’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, and Marian Harrison, Leader for the North Unit, are representing LWVSC at monthly meetings of the Complete Count Committee in Snohomish County.
New Census numbers will mean a realignment of legislative districts for Washington State. Our committee will support the work of the LWV of Washington State Census and Redistricting Committee in its focus on the Washington State Redistricting Commission. The commission begins its work in January, 2021, and ends in November, 2021.
LWVWA has developed a program called Speak Up Schools, training sessions to prepare people throughout the state to testify at the “Listening Sessions” to be held by the Redistricting Commissioners in each of the state’s ten congressional districts.
