The goal of OneVirginia2021 is to have 500,000 Virginians sign the petition to end gerrymandering. The purpose is to take the redistricting process away from the legislature where its true purpose has been corrupted and give it back to the people in the form of an independent commission. Please sign the petition, share it with others, and share it with your elected officials.
We hope that you enjoy the below film: GerryRIGGED: Turning Democracy On Its Head. It’s sponsor (OneVirginia2021) says:
It examines the historical context and consequences of gerrymandering through a multi-partisan lens that includes Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Libertarians and the Tea Party. The documentary explores the impact on communities and individual lives by including testimonials from strategists, political consultants, and map drawers, and by incorporating interviews with the men and women in politics who have the most to win – and perhaps lose – through reform.
“Gerrymandering is the enemy of representative government. It deliberately manipulates the system to take away from voters the very choice that should be a hallmark of our system,” says program producer William Oglesby. “We hope with this documentary to help citizens understand that this isn’t the way it has to be; that the voters have a right to choose their representatives rather than the representatives choose them.”
