Last month, President Obama wrote to you to say "All On The Line has proven that its campaign works." He was talking about our unprecedented campaign to demand openness and transparency during North Carolina's court-ordered redistricting process -- work that was only possible because of the support of our grassroots funders.
We set a goal of recruiting 1,000 State Plan Sponsors, to bring our 10 state plans to life. These plans were carefully crafted by our state directors to make the type of work we did in North Carolina possible across the country.
But here's the tough truth: We fell short of our goal. We received 896 contributions since launching our State Plan Sponsor campaign -- and our team has decided to extend our deadline to close the gap.
Will you be one of the contributors we need from New York to help us make up the difference and reach our 1,000 State Plan Sponsor goal?
Thanks to support from our donors, the All On The Line team is heading to Texas to close out our Redistricting U program. We've already trained hundreds of volunteers -- a great start to building out our infrastructure in our 10 target states. But Redistricting U is just one piece of the puzzle -- to win fair maps in all of our target states, we need more resources to execute our state plans.
As President Obama said, "progress requires us to be vigilant to keep up the momentum." Vigilance means we don't give up when we miss our goals -- we get up and we try again.
Help us make our state plans a success by becoming a State Plan Sponsor.
