Legislative Briefing: Gerrymandering

Screen Shot 2018-09-20 at 6.11.40 PM.png

People of all political stripes are overwhelmingly opposed to having the outcomes of elections predetermined for them through unfair redistricting. In fact, a recent bipartisan poll found that 71% of Americans would like the Supreme Court to act to end partisan gerrymandering. So why does mapmaking still happen behind closed doors?

Common Cause at the Texas Capitol to learn about the state of redistricting in Texas and what other states are doing to solve this issue.

Featuring:

  • State Representative Mary González

  • Michael Li, The Brennan Center for Justice

Color Arc Productions presents its first Work-In-Progress Concert Reading of ROMEO & KATRINA, a new American musical set during New Orleans' recovery from Hurricane Katrina. ROMEO & KATRINA is a love story that explores our connections with home, family, and community. It asks whether we are more alike than we are different. 

Romeo Tran and Katrina "Trina" Batiste live on different sides of the Mississippi River. Romeo is a blue-collar Vietnamese American mechanic from Westbank New Orleans. Trina is a “bougie” pre-med college student from an affluent black family in Eastbank New Orleans. As Romeo & Katrina’s relationship grows, so too does the New Orleans Saints as they ascend to win their first-ever Super Bowl Championship in NFL history. 

ROMEO & KATRINA was conceived by Christine Hoang, a Vietnamese American playwright/screenwriter who was born and raised in the blue collar suburbs of Westbank New Orleans.

East Austin Bookclub

Screen Shot 2018-09-17 at 1.56.45 PM - danielle lail.png

The East Austin Bookclub holds a monthly book discussion featuring books written by women every third Monday of the month.

October’s book is Wayétu Moore's "She Would be King." She Would Be King, reimagines the dramatic story of Liberia’s early years through three unforgettable characters who share an uncommon bond. Gbessa, exiled from the West African village of Lai, is starved, bitten by a viper, and left for dead, but still she survives. June Dey, raised on a plantation in Virginia, hides his unusual strength until a confrontation with the overseer forces him to flee. Norman Aragon, the child of a white British colonizer and a Maroon slave from Jamaica, can fade from sight at will, just as his mother could. When the three meet in the settlement of Monrovia, their gifts help them salvage the tense relationship between the African American settlers and the indigenous tribes, as a new nation forms around them.
