MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Democrats are sounding the alarm about plans to redraw district lines in Tennessee.

Antonio Parkinson is one of the city's 14 State Representatives, and a key player in the Tennessee's Black Caucus. He said the maps are a big concern.
The changes are being driven by falling population numbers in Memphis. Nearly every one of our 14 house districts have seen a drop in people living there.
