October 23 – CFD Membership Meeting

Community Free Democrats Monthly Meeting

Thursday, October 23, 2014, 7:30 p.m.
Goddard Riverside Community Center, 593 Columbus Ave. (at 88th Street)

What is Prop 1 and Why Must We Vote No on Prop 1 on November 4?

Be part of a critical conversation with activists who are fighting to defeat this ballot proposal. Claiming to be re-districting reform, Proposition 1 will enshrine unfair partisan practices in the state constitution. It calls for a commission appointed by legislative party leaders. The Legislature will be allowed to reject the Commission’s lines if they don’t like them, anyway. It will institutionalize the “cracking and packing” of minority communities in the suburbs, resulting in underrepresentation in the State Senate. Those are just some of the problems with this unfair, opaque, and partisan proposal. Come to Thursday’s meeting to learn more from our guest speaker.
