Mia Lewis

Hi folks, because technology is weird, many people are showing up on the screen as “Catherine Turcer.” If you have a question, please type in your name at the beginning of your question so we can tell who you really are!!!

Mia Lewis

Thanks Bill!
Mia Lewis
22:44
Questions for Jen, anyone?
Mia Lewis
24:18
Are there any of the plaintiffs on the call?
CT
24:29
What excuses did the mapmakers make?
Michael Baron
24:36
for Jen Miller: If Rucho etal goes our way, how might the ACLU Ohio suit play out?
Mia Lewis
25:15
Can’t hear you Catherine??
Mia Lewis
25:22
Repeat the question
Mia Lewis
26:14
There is an echo.
Catherine Turcer
26:30
Any thoughts on the Supreme court appeal?
Mia Lewis
28:19
Can’t hear
Michael Ahern
28:23
What can we do to keep the pressure on the legislature as the court appeal goes forward? What can we do to be prepared to act (or are we truly in a wait and see mode).
CT
29:59
Michael, we are going to talk about things we can after Freda Levenson provides an overview.
Catherine Turcer
31:48
sound is good
Barbara Springer
31:53
just fine
Catherine Turcer
32:35
We see only her nose and up. She should tilt her screen.

How do you determine if a district has racial gerrymandering
david price
48:58
OMG< nobody here doubts gerrymandering happened. did you lose the first case? why are you in appeals? can we have something other than you trying to show us how bad the gerrymandering was, we are here becasue we are already on that page? nm, good luck, i am out of here. this was a waste of time
Mia Lewis
50:22
We will be getting to next steps in a minute!
Celina Coming
54:40
Freda - can you speak to the latest updates in the case? May 3 - present?
Mia Lewis
58:21
Why can’t we start drawing maps “unofficially” now even during the stay?
Dana Reynolds
01:03:23
Can this court / legal schedule just outlined be distributed?
Dana Reynolds
01:03:49
In print, I mean.
Mia Lewis
01:04:21
Sure! We will add that into our follow up email to you.
Mia Lewis
01:04:26
…to everyone.
Dana Reynolds
01:04:56
Thanks, Mia!
Catherine Turcer
01:05:35
Haven't heard any sound the entire hour but have stayed with you. Looking forward to the recorded version and the information you share with us all. Thank you for doing this despite the technical issues. I would definitely join again. Jo from Marion.
Mia Lewis
01:05:58
Thanks, Jo. We will make sure to get the recording to you.
Mia Lewis
01:06:38
Gerrymandering is slow, fair map drawing is fast!
JANE BUDER SHAPIRO
01:08:37
could the Rs be motivated to gerrymander again as part of a delay tactic, so that the map can't be redrawn before Dec 19
Mia Lewis
01:08:45
Other questions??

We can’t hear Camille well
Bill Davis
01:12:24
Sorry, I’m confused. I thought mapping was up to the courts now. Why are we talking about a pledge?
Mia Lewis
01:12:47
Eventually the legislators will have to draw a map.
Mia Lewis
01:13:02
Whether they do it this year or not, they definitely will have to do it in 2021.
Bill Davis
01:13:54
I realize that, but the process requires bipartisan agreement.
Catherine Turcer
01:15:16
Let's get rid of districts altogether! They're fundamentally problematic and undemocratic, benefiting the two party system at the expense of every voter's preferences.
Mia Lewis
01:15:38
With Issue one there are guardrails, but folks will still try to rig the map as much as they can. The pledge is to get folks on record saying they are against gerrymandering and that they will work to create better maps.
Mia Lewis
01:18:05
Thank you for speaking into the mic!
Kim
01:18:30
Can we get the slide back up with the links for the pledge?
Mia Lewis
01:18:36
Yup!
Mia Lewis
01:19:00
Also, I put all the links in this chat.
Mia Lewis
01:19:07
You’ll find them if you scroll back up.
Kim
01:19:14
Thanks
Mia Lewis
01:19:25
Also please everyone look at the flyer about the pledge.
