Letter to CA Citizens Redistricting Commission Regarding Selection of Remaining Commissioners

As you are aware, the random drawing to select the first eight commissioners resulted in zero Latinos being selected. In a state where Latinos comprise nearly 40 percent of the total population and nearly one third of its citizen voting age population, a lack of Latino representation on the Commission would be unacceptable. Fortunately, you have the power, and the legal obligation, to rectify the dramatic underrepresentation of Latinos when you make your determinations regarding the final six commissioners.
