The NC legislature is out of session, returning after the election (there could be a special session in late November and the new legislature will start up in January...). Almost all of our legislators are running for reelection, so please encourage them to support redistricting reform, whenever they come back.
Even though the legislature has closed down, they're all out campaigning, so this is a great time to call or write your legislators and reach out to candidates running for office to let them know you YOU WANT FAIR DISTRICTS REFORM!
Any special session later this year and the 2021 session will be our last chances to get reform before the 2021 redrawing, so please join us NOW and help us educate your neighbors on why we need redistricting reform to hold our representatives accountable!
Ready to volunteer? Sign up to join the Fair Districts NC team under GET INVOLVED above and we'll get you set up.
Be sure to endorse the 5 Principles yourself, too, if you haven't already.
Want a virtual speaker for your group? Fill in the request form under "Events/ Speakers" above. We're happy to focus on your group's interests.
Updates for October 2020:
Gerrymandering does more harm than just messing up our elections (although that's bad enough!). On October 8, we'll be part of a US League of Women Voters webinar looking at how gerrymandering supports systemic racism, sharing the virtual stage with speakers from VA and GA. Sign up here for the October webinar.
The 2020 Census has been extended to the end of October! As the result of multiple court cases, it looks like this extension is finally going to happen. Remember, every family of 5 that fails to get counted will cost YOUR COMMUNITY about $100,000 in federal funding over the decade.
Take Back Our Republic, RepresentUS Triangle, Carolina Jews for Justice, and NC Women for Cannabis are the latest FairDistricts NC organizational partners. See our other members here. It's easy to become an organizational member: just endorse our 5 principles for reasonable redistricting reform!
Our study on county redistricting in NC is moving ahead! If you have a story to tell about an earlier county redistricting or want to join the research team, send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We're redrawing the county commission districts in 2021. You can find our recorded webinar on this topic (and follow our YouTube page!) here.
