Despite hundreds of us giving public comment and submitting our input to the Redistricting Task Force, they have moved forward with maps that separate the Tenderloin from SOMA and D6, split Japantown Cultural District, add Sea Cliff to District 1, separate Potrero from D10, among other damaging changes. This Redistricting Task Force has ignored the public input and shows no concern for keeping marginalized communities together.
Come out to the Elections Commission emergency meeting today, Friday April 8th at 1:30pm. We’ll be mobilizing in person, but if you can’t make it to City Hall, join us remotely on WebEx.
Community members turned out in big numbers to voice their concerns to the Election’s Commission yesterday about their appointees on the Redistricting Task Force. And they heard our calls, which is why they have called a special emergency meeting tomorrow to investigate their appointees and if they are not abiding by their responsibilities, to remove them from the Task Force.
The district lines that are being proposed will tear apart our communities for the next 10 years. We must hold Task Force members accountable for not fulfilling their duty of taking COI testimony into consideration. Not sure what to say? We’ll share a talking points doc before tomorrow’s meeting.
Please share the attached flyers far and wide.
