In September 2019, members of the House and Senate Committees on Redistricting began holding a series of town hall meetings, or field hearings, that are open to community members.

These field hearings give Texans an opportunity to show elected officials that we'll be watching as they redraw district lines.

Below are some resources to find out when and where the hearings are happening, and how you can take action – even if you aren't able to join in person.

Send a message to the Senate Committee Members explaining why a fair and transparent redistricting process is important to you.

*House and Senate Committees have temporarily postponed hearings to a later date out of an abundance of caution given recent public health events.
