Kellogg Community College is offering a non-credit, four-hour class next month to help community members better understand the political process of gerrymandering.
Gerrymandering is the process of dividing election districts to favor a particular political party or interest. KCC’s gerrymandering class, which is offered to individuals ages 16 and up via KCC’s Lifelong Learning Department, will teach participants the ins and outs of the issue in advance of the general election in Michigan Nov. 6.
The class is offered in an afternoon session and an evening session at the following times:
- Gerrymandering: What It Is and Why You Should Care
1 to 3 p.m. Wednesdays, Oct. 10 and 17, $40
- Understanding Gerrymandering
6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, Oct. 23 and 30, $35
Both class sessions will be taught by Robert Weir and will be held in room 304 of the Lane-Thomas Building on KCC’s campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek.
Registration can be completed entirely online via the direct links above or via the links found at www.kellogg.edu/lifelong. Registration can also be completed:
