During a special session of Georgia’s state legislature that began November 3, a handful of right-wing politicians led by state Senator Clint Dixon met to craft a new threat to democracy.

Giving no notice to legislators representing the state’s Gwinnett County, and no voice to voters who live there, Dixon and a handful of other politicians hijacked the special session for statewide redistricting to introduce legislation that would force Gwinnett to restructure its school board and board of commissioners. Specifically, the bill would force the county to adopt new legislative maps that dilute the voices of voters of color and form districts more advantageous to Republicans.
