ECM Partners with the Drawing Democracy Project

This year Massachusetts is in a unique position. We will lose a congressional seat due to changes in our population. How the redistricting process is carried out not only determines a community’s next elected official, but will shape decisions at the state and neighborhood level for a decade. It is imperative that all Massachusetts residents have a voice in determining how they will be represented.

The goal of the Drawing Democracy Project is to:
  • To promote a transparent and accountable redistricting process
  • To empower communities by creating fair voting district
ECM along with 10 other partners and funders recently awarded 13 grants for training, technical support, and community organizing to achieve these goals.
