How YOU can help North Carolina get fair maps:

  • Endorse the 5 principles (under Get Involved) and get several of your friends to endorse, too! 

  • Request a speaker (under Events/Speaker):  we promise an engaging, educational presentation, customized to your group. We've made more than 100 presentations across NC. We're presenting virtually and can set it up for you! 

  • Let your legislators know that you want redistricting reform and that you support the FAIR MAPS ACT (House Bill 437)

  • Volunteer:  help inform your neighbors about how gerrymandering threatens our democracy and how we can end it or join our county teams.

About 30 of NC's 100 county boards of commissioners will redraw their districts this year. Is your county one of them? Find out more about county redistricting (and why it really matters!) at our new sister website, Fair Counties NC. Click the link to the right to learn more. 

Update on redistricting in North Carolina

Updates for April 2021: 

  • Join the League's National Day of Action on redistricting, April 29! We'll be calling/writing to legislators on the redistricting committees to urge them to pass legislation in time for this year's redrawing. Sign up here.

  • The Fair Maps Act is here! Rep. Pricey Harrison and several colleagues have introduced a very good bill that would create a citizens commission. It deserves our support! 

  • Need a quick refresher on redistricting and gerrymandering to get ready for the 2021 redrawing? We've recorded four short videos that will bring you up to speed. You can find them all here.​​

  • Recent webinars on our YouTube site:  

    • March webinar: We had a conversation with Professor Irving Joyner of NCCU about the history of the local struggle in North Carolina towns and counties to remove discriminatory electoral systems.

    • February webinarWe hosted two NC nonprofit leaders to discuss organizing our state's grassroots for the 2021 redrawing. Tomas Lopez, head of Democracy NC, and La'Meshia Whittington of the Black Alliance and Advance Carolina explored how citizens can make a difference in the fight for fair maps.

    • January webinarWe talked with Representable's Outreach Director, NC's own Mikala Parnell, about how to draw your community online and capture important information about what matters to you and your neighbors. This information will help you push for districts that keep you all together!

  • Redistricting Year is finally here! But Covid... The 2021 Census data will be delayed until late summer, meaning that the redistricting process is also delayed. Stay tuned to find out whether (and how) that will affect the redistricting process. At this point, it looks like it can still get done in time for the 2022 election filing period (normally Dec. 2021), but some local/municipal elections are likely to be delayed.  

  • The legislature is back and the redistricting committees have been named. Find committee links here for the House and Senate (Joint Congressional Redistricting Comm. coming soon). This is a great time to contact your legislators and tell them you want fair maps! Find them here (and enjoy NC's pretty gerrymanders from last year).

  • Join our coalition to help prevent another decade of gerrymandering.  See our other organizational members here. The key requirement to become an organizational member:  endorse our 5 principles for reasonable redistricting reform
