Fair Districts New Jersey
Fair Districts New Jersey is a nonpartisan coalition fighting to reform New Jersey’s redistricting process.
We believe redistricting should be impartial and transparent. By maximizing public input in the process and instituting an independent citizens commission, we can put power where it belongs - in the hands of voters!
We've got to move fast. Redistricting happens in 2021!
