Redistricting: How Do We Get Started?

 

  • Utilize your Unit’s existing Political Action Committee to engage in the redistricting process;
  • Identify governmental units and their redistricting timetables;
  • Monitor governmental redistricting meetings and activities (including local government and school boards);
  • Utilize media (including social media) to establish communications;
  • Document all activities;
  • Communicate with the NAACP National Redistricting Project at NAACP Headquarters;
  • Present redistricting plans to media, legislators, and the public at large; and
  • Build coalitions with other civic organizations involved in similar redistricting efforts
