Raise a Glass to Elbridge Gerry, the namesake of Gerrymandering!
13 miles - One county - Four events - Cross Congressional district lines 5 times
We are celebrating Gerry's Birthday with a tour of restaurants in Baltimore County.
Each stop we will have food and drink specials, contests and a guest speaker on redistricting reform.
Join us to rally for a fair districting process at the place of your choosing, or get on the van with us to visit more than one!
Three years ago, full of energy and optimism, we ran around District 3 to highlight one of Maryland’s particularly strange districts. (Gerrymander Meander 1) We are still optimistic but we need to fortify ourselves for the fight ahead. And we figure it’s time to experience our gerrymander in a different way. Gerrymandering isn’t just about one district - it is even weirder out there than you think.
We're visiting 4 restaurants: 3pm Le Bistro du Village (district 3), 4:30pm Tark's Grill (district 2), 6pm Roma's Cafe (district 1), 7:30pm Greene Turtle Bar & Grille (district 7)
If you wish to attend ONE or ALL of the events on your own for FREE, please register at Eventbrite:
We will need a headcount!
To reserve a spot in a Gerry Van that will visit ALL 4 LOCATIONS, we kindly ask that you register with a donation below to defray rental costs.
By George Stevens, Jr. Directed by Walter Dallas
Starring Brian Anthony Wilson as Thurgood Marshall
"You do what you think is right and let the law catch up."
So said Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall,
who changed the face of American jurisprudence.
Spend an evening with the late Justice at this one-man show,
and consider just how far we've come... or have we?
