As we all know, gerrymandering — the practice of shaping electoral districts to favor or dis-favor one political party over another — is a real threat to our democracy. Virginia is one of the most gerrymandered states in the Union.
OneVirginia2021 is a group of concerned citizens, former and present elected officials and other individuals who want to change the way Virginia electoral districts are drawn. Currently, the General Assembly draws district lines. OneVirginia2021 plans to introduce an amendment to the Virginia Constitution that will establish an independent commission to draw district lines.
This is critical because — the 2020 federal census will result in re-drawing of district lines in 2021 — both state General Assembly districts and federal Congressional districts.
On THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6, Liz White from OneVirginia2021 will describe their plans for the 2019 General Assembly session and their strategy to move Virginia to using an independent commission for redistricting.
