January Monthly Unit Meeting. This month's meeting will feature Dr. Mark Sailing, talking about gerrymandering in Congressional districts in Ohio. This topic is very timely, as petitions are circulating now in Ohio to change the way districts are drawn to make them more fair (and the League is very involved in getting signatures for this initiative and a big supporter). In addition, action is being considered in the Ohio legislature to come up with their own plan to change the way districts are drawn. For a preview of Dr. Sailing speaking on this topic, you may watch this video of him speaking to an Ideastream reporter: http://www.ideastream.org/news/ohios-gerrymandered-congressional-districts
