Redistricting provides an opening to shift power in Orange County at all levels of government. In early 2021, OCCET is engaging in robust local organizing, research, mapping, and advocacy around redistricting with the California Citizens Redistricting Commission, Orange County Board of Supervisors, and a number of city councils, school boards, and water boards countywide.
To ensure a progressive community voice in the redistricting process, OCCET will establish a multiracial coalition of community-based organizations and residents. Centering the lived experiences and needs of low-income communities and working families, we will pursue maps and other redistricting outcomes that maximize opportunities for year-round organizing, policy advocacy, and narrative shifts that advance the progressive transformation of Orange County.
What is redistricting?
Redistricting is the process through which political district boundaries are adjusted to reflect changes in population. At the same time, it presents an opportunity to create fair conditions for increased community voice and participation in the electoral process.
