The League of Women Voters is pleased to release Shining a Light: Redistricting Lessons Learned in 2011. This comprehensive whitepaper highlights the groundbreaking efforts of Leagues and other advocates to promote a more fair and transparent redistricting process and also sheds light on key reform opportunities for improving the process over the next decade. The report also includes helpful practices for all advocates to consider as they work to influence redistricting at the local level.

The League looks forward to continuing to work with a wide range of partners to ensure our nation's redistricting processes are brought out from behind closed doors and that they result in districts that truly reflect the diversity of our communities and our democracy.
