We at Alliance San Diego want to ensure equal and equitable political representation. Redistricting is the second part of a two-part fight that started with census.
Redistricting is the process used by governments to redraw political district boundaries every ten years after the Census.
The way the lines are drawn can keep a community together or split it apart, leaving it without a representative who feels responsible for its concerns.
Redistricting determines our community’s ability to elect representatives who will be responsive to our needs, and can enact public policy solutions to address them, so it’s important for the communities we live in to be involved in this process.
Redistricting can also determine who wins elections, who controls the legislature and which laws get passed. To learn more, check out our blog series about redistricting in San Diego.
