Redistricting & Nonprofits

Empty Minnesota Capitol chamber with empty seats, the American and Minnesota state flags, and statues of prominent former Minnesota legislators.

Every state and its municipalities are required by the U.S. Constitution to redraw their districts every 10 years based on the results of the U.S. Census to achieve “one person one vote.” Redistricting is about equity, ensuring the fair political representation and distribution of resources.

Redistricting & Nonprofits
We are all stronger when our democracy is strong. Nonprofits have a critical role in helping communities use their voice and power in civic participation – especially communities that have been historically disenfranchised. Our role as nonprofits is to work for transparency and a solution that serves all people, not partisan preferences. 

MCN is an active member of Our Maps MN campaign and will be playing a role in organizing and mobilizing. MCN will be engaging stakeholders across the state to talk about redistricting and why it matters, map BIPOC and other communities of interest, and advocate that community maps influence the legislative and legal process.
