Hundreds March Demanding Fair Redistricting Maps

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.
