Communities of Interest Respond to Proposed Redistricting Maps

October 22, 2021 –The Citizen Redistricting Committee has wrapped up its work and the focus now shifts to the state legislature. The Committee approved a series of maps for lawmakers to consider on how to redraw election districts for the next ten years. That decision will likely happen sometime in December. Much of the conversation among the Redistricting Committee focused on communities of interest and how the new maps should represent those communities. Correspondent Gwyneth Doland sits down with representatives from the Native American and Black communities to get their reactions to the work of the Committee and what happens next.
