Raleigh nonprofit hosts 'End Gerrymandering Fun Run' in Raleigh
Posted July 15
Raleigh, N.C. — Dozens of people ran through Raleigh on Saturday for a fun run in an effort to end partisan gerrymandering in North Carolina.
The End Gerrymandering Fun Run was put on by Common Cause NC, a Raleigh-based nonprofit, to "raise awareness about the threat gerrymandering poses to democracy." Runners started at Trophy Brewing Company and ran or walked the border of a gerrymandered district, according to the group's website.
Common Cause's national group, along with the state Democratic Party and Democratic voters, previously filed a lawsuit alleging the state's gerrymandering was unconstitutional.
