Happy Thursday! Here's your daily report.

Dear Fort Worth Report friend,

Good morning! 

In your Thursday Report: Just how involved are area civic groups in the city's redistricting process? Reporter Rachel Behrndt goes behind the scenes with various groups and details how they are working to draw maps that address the chances of getting more people of color on the City Council, among other important interests.
