Yesterday, the Joint Legislative Committee on Redistricting met to set out criteria for the drawing of new maps. Once again Republicans showed no interest in drawing fair maps and are prioritizing political maneuvering over fair representation.
Did they commit to using partisan symmetry? No!
Did they commit to NOT using partisan advantage? No!
Did they commit to consider race in order to make sure they’re complying with the court order? No!
Instead of listening to the voice of the people, Republicans have made it clear they intend to establish maps which will provide them with a partisan advantage.
Now that these criteria have been set in stone, would you stand with us today by chipping in $5 so we can continue to fight for everyday North Carolinians just like you who want their voices heard.
