Listos CA offers several disaster preparedness toolkits in a variety of languages - please check them out and get prepared before disaster strikes.

Every ten years, after the U.S. Census, California must redraw the boundaries of its Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly, and State Board of Equalization districts to reflect the new population data. The Voters FIRST Act gave this power to California citizens, ensuring that new and fair districts are drawn free of special interests, politics, or political influence.  The California Citizens Redistricting Commission is committed to creating a transparent, accessible, and engaging process for ALL Californians. To achieve this, the Commission needs to hear from your community through the community input process. The COI tool can be found here and educational materials and resources can be found here.
