Dear friend,

It’s time to begin the once-in-a-decade task of redrawing congressional and state legislative district lines.  

In an effort to gather public input to help us create a plan that reflects the diversity of the state, the Illinois Senate is hosting public hearings — and you’re welcome to watch and provide testimony.

Next week on April 8, the Chicago Northwest Redistricting Subcommittee will host a meeting at 5 p.m.

You may join us online at - click on Audio/Video under the Senate heading to listen or view the hearing. The link appears just before the hearing is set to begin.

If you would like to testify or submit written testimony to the Illinois State Senate Redistricting Committee or any of its subcommittees contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

I hope you will take advantage of having your voice heard.
