Delaware organizing page launched
by Peter Wagner, June 9, 2010
To support organizing to end prison-based gerrymandering in Delaware, we’ve created a Delaware organizing page. On June 1, the Delaware House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill to count incarcerated people at home for redistricting purposes. The bill now moves to the Senate.
The page has links to the bill, plus two new fact sheets:
- How House Bill 384 Will End Prison-Based Gerrymandering in Delaware [PDF] by Prison Policy Initiative.
- States are authorized to adjust census data to end prison-based gerrymandering, and many already do [PDF] by Prison Policy Initiative and Demos.
and as the campaign heats up we’ll be adding more material. Stay tuned!
