A secretive, high-tech gerrymandering initiative launched 10 years ago threatens to undermine our democracy. “Slay the Dragon” follows everyday people as they fight to make their votes matter. The film follows citizens’ groups as they work to end the practice of gerrymandering, which they see as undermining democracy. It features Katie Fahey, the activist who founded Voters Not Politicians and led a successful grassroots campaign to ban partisan gerrymandering in Michigan.

The event will also feature a discussion on gerrymandering reforms with:
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First, Executive Director – Moderator
Lisa Ayrault, FairVote WA, Director
Mohit Nair, FairVote WA, Partnerships Director
Alison McAffree, LWV of WA, Census & Redistricting Issues Chair
