Redistricting - Our Maps MN

As the nation moves towards redistricting, the Our Maps MN campaign and coalition builds off the partnerships’ momentum to ensure that communities are reflected in how the lines are drawn.


Our Maps

In 2020, The Minnesota Census Mobilization Partnership brought together communities, nonprofits and grantmakers to ensure a fully inclusive, nonpartisan, and accurate count in Minnesota with a focus on historically undercounted communities. The partnership’s efforts helped lead Minnesota to the #1 spot in self-response rate for the census and reached over 1.3 million people. Following the Partnership’s unprecedented effort to ensure historically undercounted communities were counted during the 2020 Census in Minnesota, leaders turned their attention to ensuring the fair representation of these same communities in the redistricting process.

Our Maps MN Campaign 

Our Maps MN is a nonpartisan grassroots campaign committed to a community-focused and transparent redistricting process in Minnesota. The campaign is driven by community organizations, grassroots organizations, civic engagement advocates and nonprofits dedicated to putting people first in the redistricting process. 

 The goals of the campaign are to: 

  • Engage Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities and other historically underrepresented commuinities in the redistricting process
  • Promote reform that increases community ownership over the process and promote community-focused redistricting
  • Achieve fair legislative and congressional district maps that reflect input from communities, and in particular BIPOC communities
  • Sustain and strengthen the community-based civic engagement infrastructure and relationships developed from the 2020 Census effort to support enduring advocacy and organizing for democracy-focused causes
