Census And Redistricting

Census and Redistricting

Southern Echo has been involved in the census and redistricting process since 1990, providing training, technical and legal assistance to grassroots leaders and community groups, public officials and their professional associations, and involving community people directly in the drawing of fair redistricting plans at the municipal, county, state and congressional levels.

In this process Southern Echo has worked through the Mississippi Redistricting Coalition, the Delta Redistricting Working Group, and county redistricting committees.

In 2008 Southern Echo is launching a 5-year process to engage grassroots communities in 10 states to work for complete census counts and fair redistricting plans.
