Social Inequity and Voting
The session will use Ohio legislative maps superimposed onto maps from Sinclair’s Mapping Equity Project, which illustrate the impact of the “red line" that divided our community along racial lines, as related to voter access and participation. Through examination of the maps and discussion regarding the challenges faced by those with limited resources, attendees will gain understanding of the barriers many citizens must overcome to exercise their right to vote.
