Tennesseans were clear with lawmakers:
Keep Tennessee Counties WHOLE!
With no notice and little debate, lawmakers have carved up Tennessee, creating an unprecedented gerrymander, subverting the will of voters, and eroding representation for communities of color.
No matter our color, background or zip code, voters should pick their leaders, not the other way around.
We come together every decade to draw new district lines that give each of our votes equal weight, each of our voices equal stature, and each of our communities equal access to the decision making processes that determine funds for schools, hospitals, and other essential services that our government allocates...
Or at least, that is what’s supposed to happen.
But today, a handful of politicians in Tennessee are trying to rig the process, drawing districts to serve their interests instead of our communities’ needs.
We're joining together to demand these politicians keep our communities whole and deliver what our schools and families need for a decade to come.
Please join our petition calling on lawmakers to Keep Tennessee Whole.
