Redistricting: What Happens When The Party With Power Gives Themselves More

Description

Like lawmakers across the country, the Republican majority in Texas is getting ready to redraw the lines that define state and congressional voting districts. Those lines cement the shape of political power in the state for the next decade — and it's perfectly legal for the party in power to draw them to its own advantage.

Texas Tribune reporter James Barragán and Michael Li of the Brennan Center discuss redistricting in Texas, and around the country.

In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment that will help you make sense of what's going on in your community.
