Recap: ACER's 2022 Civic Engagement work

Gearing up for the November midterms, this year ACER's Civic Engagement team has been working with community members and partner organizations to provide citizens with the information they need to be confident voters.

Redistricting Updates:

Redistricting is the process of redrawing electoral boundaries. Whether cities remain within the same district or whether they are separated can impact political outcomes, policy, and their ability to enact collective action.

Congressional Redistricting:

ACER engaged in mapping sessions within our communities and tenant cohorts in which best redistricting outcomes were discussed and redistricting lines were proposed. ACER defended the interests of the Northwest Suburbs by

encouraging the Minnesota Judiciary to allow Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center to remain in the same senate district; we identified points of interest and recommended redistricting lines that would preserve schools, businesses, and houses of worship that operated within the same district. Recognizing the importance of bringing community members into these discussions, we collaborated with multiple Brooklyn Park renters to present testimonies regarding redistricting and transportation before Minnesota Representative Mary Murphy and national Senator Tina Smith during public testimonies.
