Georgia Legislative Redistricting Challenge (Alpha Phi Alpha)

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. v. Raffensperger

Lawsuit filed on behalf of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Sixth District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and Georgia voters against the state’s new legislative districts. The lawsuit argues that the new state House and Senate districts dilute the voting strength of Black Georgians in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. The plaintiffs ask the court to block the maps and order the creation of new maps that do not dilute the voting power of Black voters.
