Message

Students from the Ethnic Studies Department at the University of San Diego, with support from the Office of Community Service-Learning and in partnership with the community organization Justice Overcoming Boundaries (JOB) are hosting a two-hour forum to educate, engage, and motivate around the issue of redistricting, why it is important, the basics of the process, and why it affects every single person in the community. One person, one vote is necessary in redistricting to achieve substantial equality of population in the districts. The goal is equal representation. Presenters will also speak to how California came to the creation of a state redistricting commission, and how it is an act of social justice. Common Cause and League of Women Voters will also be in attendance to address Chula Vista’s unique redistricting.
