January 14, 2019-

Hill County Democratic Party to Host Speakers with the Fair Maps Coalition.

Stephanie Swanson, the Issue Chair of Redistricting with the League of Women Voters of Texas and Amanda Gnaedinger, SW Organizer of Common Cause will speak at the Hill County Democratic Party meeting January 14, 2019. at the El Conquistador Restaurant, 1516 Old Brandon Rd Hillsboro, TX @ 6:00pm.

To prevent gerrymandered districts, a coalition of civil and voting rights groups known as the Fair Maps coalition wants Texas citizens to draw the state's electoral maps.

Several groups make up the Fair Maps coalition: Common Cause Texas, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Texas League of Women Voters, the Texas Civil Rights Project, the Texas Progressive Action Network, Common Ground for Texans, Clean Elections Texas and TexPIRG.

For seven years, the state of Texas has defended its statehouse and congressional maps against allegations that they were drawn in 2011 with the purpose of minimizing the voting power of African-Americans and Latinos.

Members of the coalition say there’s a way to avoid the years of legal back-and-forth that have cost taxpayers millions of dollars: The state could establish an independent redistricting commission in which citizens, not lawmakers, draw the maps.

“We'll just keep doing these endless cycles of litigation for years to come if we keep this system in place where the people drawing the district lines are the same people who will be running in those districts," Anthony Gutierrez, executive director of Common Cause Texas, said in a news release. “Our Fair Maps coalition will be presenting a package of common sense reforms designed to let voters be the ones selecting their representatives and not the other way around.”
