California Redistricting Basics


California Redistricting Basics

Redistricting is drawing (and redrawing) the boundaries that determine which voters are represented by each electoral district.
You do have a say. This guide will inform your say. The more voices weighing in, the more opportunity to create districts that work for all residents and interests.

Trujilo Adopbe  Most Endangered in 2021 According to National Trust for Historic Preservation

Trujilo Adobe







Constructed in 1862 by the Trujillo (pronounced true-HEE-yo) family, and today the oldest known building in Riverside, the Trujillo Adobe tells the story of migration and settlement in inland southern California.

Lorenzo Trujillo, who originally settled in the area when it was still part of Mexico, was a Genízaro—one of many Native Americans who were captured, sometimes held in slavery, sometimes baptized and raised by Spanish colonists.

Trujillo led many expeditions as a scout across the Old Spanish Trail, enabling immigrants to settle inland California, and his home became the beating heart of a community known as La Placita de los Trujillos, Spanish Town, and Agua Mansa.

The Adobe is now deteriorated and fragile, protected only by a wooden structure (also in need of repair) that hides the Adobe from view.

Local advocates hope to transform the Adobe into a cultural and educational site to recognize and take pride in the multiple cultures that shaped and continue to define the region.

Add your name to urge Congress for additional support.
