A coalition of civil rights groups unveiled maps for new political districts Friday that it says create a more fair and equitable representation of Georgia’s increasingly diverse population.
The coalition’s Georgia Unity Redistricting plan comes five days before state legislators gather for a special session to redraw the state’s Congressional, state Senate and state House districts. The four groups in the coalition are The GALEO Latino Community Development Fund, the Georgia State Conference of the NAACP, the Georgia Coalition for the People’s Agenda, and the Urban League of Greater Atlanta.
