WiseUp on the New District Maps & the Growing Asian Population with Prerna Bhat

Hear from Prerna Bhat, a member of the TX AAPI Redistricting Coalition, who testified six times in front of the Texas Legislature to advocate for voting maps that will keep the growing Asian community together and not dilute the power of the APA constituency.  During a special legislative session, Texas lawmakers created and passed new voting maps for Texas House Districts, Texas Senate Districts, and US Congressional Districts.  This only happens once every ten years, after new data from the census is collected.  The census showed that 95% of population growth in Texas came from community of color, but the new maps result in more majority-white districts.  Find your new district using this Texas Tribune article.
