Redistricting in San Diego
In 2021, OTTA United partnered with other community organizations to increase minority representation across San Diego. In particular, OTTA United was interested in increasing AAPI and student representation in city politics.
We partnered with 40+ community organizations and organized 120+ students to redistricting commission hearings. Ultimately, we increased the AAPI % of District 6 to over 40%.
