On Saturday, December 4, hundreds of people marched in Fresno demanding fair redistricting maps. The event was led by Dolores Huerta, the iconic 91 years-old leader.
Board of Supervisors districts are being redrawn, which happens every 10 years after the Census. A redistricting commission appointed by supervisors rejected a new district map in October that was backed by community-based organizations, instead advancing three others to the board.
Dolores Huerta, speaking to the crowd, said that if Supervisors don’t listen to the community, then legal action might follow.
