Governmental & Community Relations

June 4 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Every ten years, following the federal census, all states must re-establish the boundaries of its Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly, and State Board of Equalization districts to reflect new population data and shifting populations. This year, for the first time in the state’s history, California will be losing a congressional seat, so the redistricting process is even more critical than usual. The Voters FIRST Act gave this power to California citizens ensuring that new and fair political boundaries are drawn avoiding special interests, politics and political influence. As was done ten years ago, a new independent non-partisan redistricting commission will be responsible for drawing the new district lines. Dr. Sara Sadhwani, one of the California Redistricting Commissioners, will be the featured presenter at the Chamber’s June 4th ZoomCast. She is an Assistant Professor of Politics at Pomona College specializing in American politics, racial and ethnic politics, and public policy. Her research has been published in numerous peer reviewed Journals.
