Nick Stephanopoulos and Ruth Greenwood are experts in the field of redistricting and heavily involved in the U.S. Supreme Court Case Gill v. Whiford. Greenwood serves as a member of the legal team for the plaintiffs at the Campaign Legal Center, while Stephanopoulos helped to create the Efficiency Gap Theory, which is the standard being considered by the court in this partisan gerrymandering case. Join us for a presentation on the impact of this historical case and a discussion about redistricting reform efforts.
