    CHANGE! Illinois: You Draw the Maps

    Thursday, Oct 17, 2013 7:00 - 9:00 PM @ CivicLab
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Who's on the ballot? It's all politics. In redistricting, the process of creating district boundaries, politicians draw the maps, constraining your vote and ultimately deciding which laws pass. Here’s your chance to take the mapping process into your own hands, with the help of experts on what happens behind closed doors.

    Hosted by: Ryan Blitstein, President & CEO, Benjamin Sugar, Lead Organizer, CivicLab
