California Citizens Redistricting Commission held a public hearing in San Gabriel on Apr. 29 to gather input before drawing the first draft map. Chinese American public officials hoped the commission will not divide Chinese-populated cities in order to ensure the rights and interest of the Chinese American community. The commission will release its three draft maps on Jun. 10, Jul. 1 and Jul 26 before announcing the final district map in August.
