Common Cause NC welcomes new Redistricting Community Engagement Specialists to help North Carolinians make their voices heard as new voting maps are drawn
RALEIGH – As North Carolina prepares to draw new voting maps in 2021, Common Cause NC welcomes Rotrina Campbell and Tyler Daye as the organization’s new Redistricting Community Engagement Specialists.
In their roles with Common Cause NC, Rotrina and Tyler will help educate and engage communities across the state in the redistricting process. The outreach effort will include redistricting workshops designed to empower North Carolinians to have a voice in how new voting maps are drawn.
“This is a critical time for our state. The new voting districts created in 2021 will affect all North Carolinians, impacting elections and shaping the priorities of our government for years to come. And so it’s vital that the public plays a central role in how the lines are drawn and that no community is hurt by gerrymandered maps,” said Bob Phillips, executive director of Common Cause NC. “We’re excited to have Rotrina and Tyler join our team as we advocate for a fair redistricting process that protects communities, truly values public input and puts people above politics – and is completely free from gerrymandering.”
Rotrina Campbell is a highly skilled organizer who brings extensive outreach experience with a variety of organizations and causes rooted in communities of color. She is a graduate of Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte and she earned a Master of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix.
Tyler Daye has a strong background in community outreach in North Carolina, with a special focus on the effort to end gerrymandering in our state. He is a graduate of UNC Greensboro with a degree in Political Science and Sociology.
