We rely on people like you to power this movement. And here is what our grassroots army is up against in 2020:
Republicans in states like New Hampshire, Michigan, and more have shown their true colors. Instead of supporting citizen-led proposals for fair independent redistricting commissions, they’re fighting tooth and nail to hang on to power -- and they have big money and big names behind them.
The Trump campaign and the RNC have $195 million in the bank, and they’ve made it clear that they’re going to funnel a lot of that money to boost Republicans in down-ballot races.
The ruling by the Supreme Court’s conservatives last June means we have to go state by state to secure fair maps. And of course, the presidential race is heating up and we’re going to have to compete for voters’ attention.
Sula, the NDRC has achieved so much in such a short time with the help of this community. I know we can make this last year before redistricting our most impactful one yet. Will you pitch in to help us hit our $90,000 end-of-month goal?
