Update: The Redistricting Hearing Meeting time has been corrected to 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM.
Hello Voter Empowerment Team and Colleagues,
PLEASE SEE TWO SOURCES OF INFORMATION BELOW REGARDING THE NEXT REDISTRICTING MEETING SCHEDULED FOR JULY 26TH IN BRUNSWICK, GA AT 5:00 P.M.
- The First is from BLACK VOTERS MATTER
- The Second from Planned Parenthood Southeast Savannah regarding FREE Transportation to Brunswick
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT ALL CITIZENS AND ORGANIZATIONS BE PRESENT AND REPRESENTED IN MASSIVE NUMBERS!! PLEASE POST ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLETS AND CIRCULATE ON YOUR E-NEWSLETTERS AND/OR AMONG PERSONS ON YOUR EMAIL LIST.
REDISTRICTING IS ANOTHER FORM OF VOTER SUPPRESSION BECAUSE EQUITY OF REPRESENTATION IN CONGRESS IS AT STAKE BASED ON HOW DISTRICT LINES ARE DRAWN AND SUBSEQUENTLY APPROVED IN THE GEORGIA LEGISLATURE.
GEORGIA DOES NOT HAVE A NON-PARTISAN COMMISSION TO STUDY AND RECOMMEND HOW THE DISTRICT LINES ARE TO BE DRAWN BASED ON EQUITY & FAIR REPRESENTATION. THEREFORE, OUR VOICES MUST BE HEARD, AND WE MUST CONTINUE TO SPEAK OUT, AND DEMAND EQUITY.
“I Am Passionate About Voting.”
