    Closed Captioned.

    After each decennial U.S. census, every state engages in redistricting, which is the process of drawing electoral district boundaries, to account for population shifts. Many appointed officials have used redistricting as an opportunity to reconfigure political districts to favor a political party or candidate, or to draw political districts in a manner to prevent racial minorities from electing their preferred candidates. After the 2020 census, a wave of litigation over new legislative maps and political districts commenced, resulting in two very important cases making their way before the Supreme Court: Moore v. Harper and Allen v. Milligan (out of Alabama).

    In the Milligan case, Alabama redistricted after the 2020 census, resulting in lawmakers packing most Black residents in Alabama into one sprawling district, resulting in Black voters controlling only 14 percent of political districts despite making up nearly a third of the state's population. The Supreme Court will decide whether the state of Alabama's 2021 redistricting plan for its seven seats in the United States House of Representatives violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act by using race as a means to maintain power through gerrymandering tools known as "packing" and "cracking."

    In Moore, North Carolina courts struck down newly drawn maps of voting districts in February 2022 and found that the state legislature violated multiple provisions in the state's constitution by giving Republican candidates an unfair advantage through partisan gerrymandering. State lawmakers have appealed this case to the Supreme Court and want to resurrect the map that the North Carolina's state courts struck down. The Supreme Court will decide whether the U.S. Constitution's Elections Clause gives state legislatures the unfettered authority to determine how congressional elections are conducted without any intercession or checks and balances from state constitutions or state courts.

    The Minority Trial Lawyer Committee's webinar, Racial Gerrymandering and Fair Representation: The Impact of Moore v. Harper and Allen v. Milligan on Local Election Administration and Redistricting Litigation, will center around these two cases and bring together constitutional law, civil rights and policy experts to explore how Moore and Allen implicate Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, the Electors Clause of the U.S. Constitution and the independent state legislature theory.
