URGENT Call to Action: Kern County Board of Supervisors Meeting, Mon. 3/26/18, 1pm

URGENT Call to Action: Kern County Board of Supervisors Meeting, Mon. 3/26/18, 1pm

URGENT Call to Action Show up Monday afternoon to let the Kern County Board of Supervisors know that we have waited long enough for justice and won’t be denied any longer! BOS must produce fair and just redistricting maps for Kern County!

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS – COUNTY OF KERN

1115 Truxtun Avenue Bakersfield, California

Special Meeting Monday, March 26, 2018 1:00 P.M.

In 2011, the Kern County Board of Supervisors drew up a redistricting plan that was struck down in a recent decision. According to U.S. District Judge Dale Drozd, it was not “equally open to participation by Latino voters,” as mandated by the Voting Rights Act.

We are concerned that the board will fail to act quickly on this judgment, in an effort to delay implementation until 2020. We need the community to come out strong at tomorrow’s board meeting to voice support for immediate implementation.

Please read more about the court case in the following article Judge: California county’s redistricting diluted Latino vote by Sudhin Thanawala Associated Press Feb 23, 2018

JUSTICE DELAYED, IS JUSTICE DENIED!
