Help is Needed in Advocating for a Fair Map in the Redistricting Process for the Bakersfield City School District
Dear DHF Supporter,
Vecinos Unidos Bakersfield Chapter invites you to support their community-led map for the Bakersfield City School District redistricting process. The map was developed in partnership with experienced demographer Jesus Garcia and is based on fair lines that consider equity indicators like: Voting Rights Act districts, COVID-19 impacts, and socioeconomic factors.
We are asking for your support in providing a public comment to the Bakersfield City School District Board of trustees to support the redistricting map designed by parents and community members that represent their communities.
How YOU Can Join:
ATTEND: Tuesday January 25, 2022 @ 6 p.m. PDT at 1300 Baker Street, Bakersfield, CA 93305 to submit your public comment in person.
PUBLIC COMMENT TEMPLATE:
My name is ______ I am a parent/student/community leader/ staff, teacher, etc. I support the Vecinos Unidos map. This map will allow for an equitable representation and opportunity for my community to elect leaders of their choice and bring resources to our students. Selecting a community map will be essential for the next 10 years. (Provide an example where you reside and the resources/ changes you hope to achieve)
