Op-Ed: As California redraws political lines, keep two Black congressional districts in L.A.

When California voters passed Propositions 11 and 20 to create the statewide independent redistricting commission a decade ago, there were concerns that such a panel would end up diluting the voting power of the state’s Asian, Latino and African American communities. The other commissioners and I felt the weight of that concern daily and took to heart our responsibility to serve all of our state’s diverse population. This must be kept in mind once again as the state prepares to redraw districts.
