Church leaders will hold a meeting to endorse legislative redistricting plans



Rochester, New York – At Spiritus Christi Church, black clergy and neighborhood residents are holding a news conference to endorse the revised redistricting plans for the Monroe County legislature election.

The new redistricting plan will be supported at the conference on Fitzhugh Street, which will ask Monroe County Executive Adam Bello to do so.

They will discuss the recently drafted county voting district plan that divides Rochester’s crescent into five districts with a majority of black residents.

According to the new map’s proponents, section two of the Voting Rights Act gives them the right to these amendments.

Local lawmakers and participants from the roundtable of religious leaders are anticipated. At 5:30 p.m., the conference gets started.
