In contrast with conventional “testimony” models--2 or 3 hours in front of a video camera--the instructor spoke with the same survivors over months, years, and-with a few people--even decades. The course also emphasizes listening attentively and in depth. That approach often yields surprising insights not otherwise attainable. Core topics include: (1) The...

Gerrymandering: Rejecting the Obvious

Now that it’s clear that efforts to deal with gerrymandering cannot be litigated in federal court, the question is whether state independent redistricting commissions are the best approach to the problem.
