In light of the Supreme Court’s decision to hear Gill vs Whitford, this panel will be asked to explore the history of gerrymandering and the effects of recent changes in technology, data mining, and dark money, to understand the implications of potential Supreme Court decisions.  Before this case made it to the Supreme Court, what work had been taking place on the ground to address the effects of gerrymandering? How has the US Census influenced redistricting?  What can we expect from the Supreme Court and how will this impact the future of electoral politics?  Speakers David Daley, author, Ratf**ked: The True Story Behind the Secret Plan to Steal America's Democracy and former Editor-in-chief of Salon.com Joanna Cuevas Ingram, Associate Council, LatinoJustice PRLDEF Michael Li, Senior Counsel for the Brennan Center’s Democracy Program and co-author of the report, Extreme Maps Deuel Ross, Assistant Counsel at the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund Moderator: John Mollenkopf, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, CUNY Graduate School and consortial faculty, Murphy Institute
