Fair Legislative And Congressional Maps

As stated on its website, the Ohio Fair Districting Coalition is "committed to fairer state legislative and congressional maps. We are a non-partisan team of voting rights experts and organizations working to create a better and more equitable representational democracy." The coalition includes Common Cause Ohio, the League of Women Voters of Ohio, Ohio A. Philip Randolph Institute, the Ohio Council of Churches, the Ohio Voter Rights Coalition, and more.


Under the unshakable conviction that God desires people in every zip code to flourish, not just some, and that partisan gerrymandering is an affront to human dignity, the Ohio Council of Churches has given leadership to the Fair Districts effort. Through marches, rallies, petition drives, and Statehouse testimony, the Ohio Council of Churches has been involved in the effort to establish fairer and just legislative districts.


On Wednesday, March 16, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled the third set of state legislative maps drawn by the Ohio Redistricting Commission reflected partisan gerrymandering and were therefore unconstitutional. Of course, this was a major victory in Ohio’s fight against deliberately unfair legislative voting maps, and a crucial victory in the national movement for fair legislative districts.
