|Gerrymandering Book Discussion.
David Daley's book, "Ratf**cked," will be discussed.
Julian E. Zelizer of the Washington Post states, "Daley's book provides a blow-by-blow account of how redistricting happened. He draws on investigative reports, interviews and court documents to give readers an eye-opening tour of a process that many Americans never see....What Daley makes clear is that ruthless partisan gerrymandering is not good for democracy."

|LWV-VA Fall Workshops. Come spend a day in Fredericksburg and learn some new skills, compare notes, and trade ideas. The LWV-VA Fall Workshops provide you with the perfect opportunity to discover different ways of doing things, whether it is using a new technology, adding fun to your voter registration efforts, or encouraging the next generation of Leaguers. This year's Fall Workshops will focus on "League Basics"--how to keep your local Leagues happy, healthy, and, most importantly, active--and on our three major studies: Mental Health; Women's Rights and Virginia Law; and Preparing LWV-VA for Advocacy regarding School Choice Legislation. The Fall Workshops bring folks, from across the state, together to network and to GET INVOLVED! Watch for more information on this year's Fall Workshops on the LWV-VA website and in the September issue of the Virginia Voter. For more information: http://lwv-va.org/2017workshops.html|
