I am here because I am angry... I was an early supporter of an independent redistricting committee, and was representative of onevirginia2021 at Greenspring retirement community after brian cannon spoke on our campus... but then came the amendment which created a legislative commission, not an independent, citizens commission.... I joined mark levine in opposition to the amendment, because it is NOT an independent commission... and now we have seen the outcome.... and I call it a failure! and now I assume that every 10 years in perpetuity, we will go thru this same charade, and end up in the court... so I am angry.... and brokenhearted... patricia mcgrady, springfield, age 85

Ms McGrady,I don't plan to get angry until and unless we don't get fair maps. That, after all, is the goal.

Can you give some more detailAbout the 11 districts that were cited there? How did you chose those? I think you explained already but I didn’t catch it
Janet Martin

It is hard work to push against 400 years of gerrymandering. Just glad we have made a stand and started to turn the tide.
Todd Hendricks

Jahd, the visualization we presented showed the black voting age population, from highest to lowest, for each of the 11 of VA’s congressional districts. One of the takeaways from that visual was that algorithms can help detect departures from “normal” in districting plans.
