by Democratic Party of Virginia

Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Executive Director Becca Slutzky released the following statement on the Supreme Court's redistricting decision: 

"This is a historic moment in the fight against unfair gerrymandering in the Commonwealth and the United States. This decision strengthens a fundamental pillar of democracy by amplifying the voices of Virginians through better representation in Congress. Democrats will always fight to end the injustice that racial gerrymandering inflicts upon voters, and we're optimistic about what this decision means for the future of Virginia and the fight for greater representation across the country."
