On June 21st, 2023, Fair Rep LA hosted a virtual teach-in event to discuss the basic requirements of redistricting, as well as considerations specific to the City of Los Angeles. We covered the requirements for drawing a valid map, the specific challenges of redistricting the City of LA, and provided an introduction to an online tool called Dave’s Redistricting. which allows you to draw and learn from your own expanded council map. By drafting your own maps using Dave's Redistricting, you can explore the impact that various numbers of council seats might have on different communities of Angelenos.
A recording of this teach-in, How to Draw a Better City Council is available here:
