Redistricting

We fought and continue to fight for fair political representation. Below information and sources reflecting our research, participation, mobilization and advocacy on redistricting.

The Redistricting Project (DA-R) is a national initiative seeking to engage and educate communities in the United States Redistricting-Appropriation Process to achieve adequate representation – “one person-one vote” and guarantee a fair and just redistricting process.

DANR went to court for redress. See the Opinion and Order of the United States District Court Eastern District of New York regarding one of the DANR proposed redistricting maps:
