Racial Gerrymandering is the intentional manipulation of the redistricting process to reduce the political power of a specific racial group.
Every 10 years, after the collection of the decennial census data, states redraw state and congressional district lines. These districts determine how communities are represented at the local, state, and federal levels. The redistricting process is fundamental in influencing how our government works. Given the population growth in Oregon we have won a sixth Congressional district. We need to ensure that the new district and representative advocates for our critical communities and champions our needs.
