Gerrymandering: What You Need to Know
Tuesday, May 22, 7-8:30pm
At our May gathering we welcome Dustin Chicurel-Bayard, who will make a presentation on Gerrymandering. There will be plenty of time for discussion on this critically important topic.
Dustin is the Communications Director for the Southern Coalition for Social Justice (SCSJ), an organization that partners with communities of color and economically disadvantaged communities in the south to defend and advance their political, social and economic rights through the combination of legal advocacy, research, organizing and communications.
He has developed relationships with journalists, editors, and advocates across the country. Dustin works to identify communications opportunities to advance all of SCSJ’s core issues. For the five years prior to joining SCSJ, Dustin held the same position at the North Carolina Sierra Club.
Before developing his communications skill set, Dustin worked as a project coordinator at Blueprint NC and as a community organizer, managing many state and local issue based campaigns, advancing the causes of affordable housing, health care access, economic justice and preventing predatory lending.
A native of Troutman, North Carolina, Dustin studied political science at Appalachian State University and was heavily involved in campus politics. Dustin is a proud husband, uncle, and son who appreciates the role his family plays in motivating and supporting his efforts to promote social justice and equity.
