We are closer than we’ve ever been to voting maps that actually represent the people of our state. The most important thing we can do right now is keep the pressure on the NCGA to conduct an open and transparent redraw process, and to draw maps that comply with the court order. The public has a right to know what is going on and to give input on where the lines are drawn!

Action Alert!
Call and email your NC House Rep and NC Senator (contact info may be found here). Tell them why this issue is important to you and ask what they are doing to inform their constituents and to publicly advocate for fair maps. We are working on a tool to make this easier – stay tuned!
