ARIZONA REDISTRICTING 2011:

Protecting Minority Rights for the Next 10 Years

As Arizona redraws its political maps to  reflect the results of the 2010 Census, the state once again finds itself in the center of the U.S. debate over immigration, voting rights and the political power of the minorities. The state's population grew 26 percent over the past decade-much of that due to Latinos-resulting in a one new congressional seat, but the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission has been under attack by the GOP.
  • Learn how redistricting could increase or diminish minority voting power throughout Arizona and what civic activists are doing to assure that new redistricting lines don't further dilute the power of Hispanic, Native American, African American and Asian American.
  • How have SB1070 and other hard-line immigration laws affected redistricting?
  • How has partisanship affected how Arizona lawmakers approach the Voting Rights Act?
  • What can communities of color do to protect their interests during the redistricting process at the state, county and citywide level?
  • How could the results of Arizona's redistricting process affect the voting rights of minorities for the next decade and beyond?
