Fair Maps Texas: Fair Maps Texas will be holding another series of Fireside Chats to help folks get ready for the upcoming legislative session. There are a lot of moving parts right now with the redistricting timeline, since the Census operations are still up in the air. We want to do our best, though, to help everyone prepare and participate in the legislative process, whether that be advocating for legislation or for fair maps. We aim to present info that will help people build an effective campaign for the upcoming redistricting cycle.
