We the people, demand the city of VB City Council end its litigation to continue Jim Crow laws. The city is pursuing litigation to deny People of Color equitable voting rights in the city of Virginia Beach, Virginia. We will no longer tolerate spending our tax dollars to discriminate against us, while denying our communities representation. 1.) We DEMAND a 10 single member district system to FINALLY put an END to Jim Crow. 2.) We DEMAND the city of Virginia Beach END practices and procedures that dilute and violate the rights of citizens while fleecing the city tax payers dollars to maintain its apartheid system. 3.) We DEMAND our city have a budget for each single member district from the overall city operating budget. 4.) We DEMAND the city stop using our tax payer dollars, IN OUR NAME, to discriminate against us. You work for us and it's time the governing body of the City of Virginia Beach act like it!

Why is this important?

On March 31, 2021, the United States Federal Court ruled that by a proponderence of the evidence the plaintiff have demonstrated that the at-large system of elections for the Virginia Beach City Council denies Hispanics, African Americans, and Asians equal access to the electoral and political process, in contravention of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. Accordingly, It is hereby declared that the Virginia Beach at-large method of elections is ILLEGAL AND CAN NOT BE ENFORCED IN FUTURE ELECTIONS. The Virginia Beach City Council and its current system have been ENJOYED! We DEMAND the City of Virginia Beach take the shackles off our vote. 1.) We DEMAND a 10 single member district system to FINALLY put an END to Jim Crow. 2.) We DEMAND the city of Virginia Beach END practices and procedures that dilute and violate the rights of citizens while fleecing the city tax payers dollars to maintain its apartheid system. 3.) We DEMAND our city have a budget for each single member district from the overall city operating budget. 4.) We DEMAND the city stop using our tax payer dollars, IN OUR NAME, to discriminate against us.
