Updates on Oregon redistricting By now you know that Gov. Brown has signed off on the legislative redistricting maps, and we are done with this stage of the process. Some of your counties face pretty significant changes of districts, and some are not as dramatically affected, but you are all probably wondering if the new districts impact the Democratic Party structure, and when this all will actually be final.Please note the redistricting process is not yet completed. Electors can file challenges to the redistricting plan until Monday, October 25, 2021. If a challenge is filed it goes to the Oregon Supreme Court for consideration and we will likely not have final districts set until January 31, 2022. If no challenge is filed then final district lines will be approved as early as November 22, 2021.In the meantime, and even after the district lines are finalized, your DPO SCC delegations will remain the same and your delegation members will complete their terms until you conduct your County reorganizations in late 2022 or early 2023. (If you are a County that reorganizes at another time, we'll work with you). The addition of the 6th Congressional District creates a whole new CD Committee, but existing CD Committees will also complete their terms, and DPO Standing Committee members appointed through their CDs will also complete their terms until the new membership is established in early 2023.Obviously, we'll be doing a lot of math to figure out county delegate & alternate allocations to include the new CD, but that is a ways down the road. The numbers that we use to allocate delegates for the 2023-2024 "term" of the DPO are based off of the voter registration numbers in the May 2022 Primary, and are typically allocated in the fall of the election year.Your own county structure, especially if your county's leadership team is composed of Legislative District leaders, may or may not be something you wish to address, in accordance with your own bylaws, and it's your call, but please remember the district lines are not final and may face legal challenges. Feel free to connect with me if you'd like to chat about it. I'd recommend keeping any future adjustments as simple as possible, and make sure you have map links. Activist, volunteer or voter, folks' #1 question will be "What district am I in?" - and that may still change!LINKS to NEW MAPS: www.oregonlegislature.gov/redistrictingBecause of the full process, it will likely take until the beginning of next year before we get the appropriate data from the Secretary of State's office to upload to the VAN for organizing efforts, but we will keep you informed when those updates are made.More to come!KC ...

Today and every day, we celebrate the immense contributions, culture, and resilience of the Native community – from the nine Federally Recognized Tribes here in Oregon, to the more than 570 Federally Recognized Tribes across the country, to all of our relatives that are still working toward formal Federal Recognition today.This marks the first year that Oregon officially celebrates Indigenous Peoples' Day. We welcome this opportunity for Oregonians to recognize the Tribes and peoples who have lived here since time immemorial, the impact we have had in shaping Oregon's past and present, and to acknowledge and work to understand the centuries of cruelty and injustice inflicted upon the Native community.While we are glad for and celebrate this occasion, this is also an important moment to keep in mind that our communities are still dealing with the consequences of generations of oppression. It is not by coincidence that Tribes are on the frontlines of the impacts of COVID-19, are subject to ongoing efforts to suppress our right to vote, are fighting for access to safe and clean drinking water, and so much more. ...
