Nonpartisan Redistricting To Limit Gerrymandering; Understanding The 'Aspirational' Class

Download Audio

This year's census will help determine how states redraw their electoral maps. At least 17 states have committed to using nonpartisan commissions or other nontraditional methods in their redistricting this year in an effort to prevent partisan gerrymandering. We talk to Jessika Shipley of Colorado's Legislative Council. Also, we explore the growth of the so-called "aspirational class" and what our consumer habits can tell us about the current state of social class and cultural cohesion in the U.S. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's March 13, 2020, full broadcast.
