NJAIJ joined leading racial justice organizations to draw "Racial Equity" Unity Maps for congressional and state legislative redistricting. Our effort prioritized racial equity and fair representation for communities with shared interests and included six people of Color majority districts for Congress and 20 people of Color majority districts in the State legislature.
While not all recommendations from the Racial Equity Maps were adapted by New Jersey's Redistricting Commission, important progress was made. Our coalition also won an early public release of draft maps, set ing a historic precedent for future redistricting efforts.
