All On The Line

One year ago, President Obama announced he was going all-in on the fight against gerrymandering by combining forces with AG Holder to launch All On The Line. Since then, this grassroots organizing movement has built a strong network of people fighting for fair maps.

To celebrate our anniversary, we're launching a new way for you to get involved in this fight -- it's called Adopt-a-State!

We want to give you an opportunity to make a difference on the front lines of this fight. By joining our Adopt-a-State program, you'll get connected with one of our target state directors and plugged into our organizing structure. With your help, we'll be able to contact potential volunteers and help them get involved.

Help us build this movement by joining our Adopt-a-State team.

-- The AOTL Team

All On The Line is the grassroots advocacy campaign supported by the National Redistricting Action Fund. Support our work to end gerrymandering.



All On The Line
Barack Obama: Change is always within our reach -- but it's going to take the involvement of people like you holding politicians accountable to ensure an accurate census in 2020 and fair maps in 2021.

We're asking our grassroots supporters to invest an additional $5,000 in our Advocacy Fund before midnight tonight. It will help us secure fair maps in these target states:

With the Iowa caucuses behind us, the eyes of the nation now turn to New Hampshire. But we've had our eyes on the Granite State since last August, when Republican Governor Chris Sununu VETOED bipartisan legislation to create an independent redistricting commission!
Sununu vetoes bill for independent redistricting committee. Donate to the fight for fair maps

Sula -- we're holding him accountable. Our hard-hitting football-themed ad took him to task recently, and New Hampshire is one of our 2020 target states. But we need your help to keep up the pressure -- in New Hampshire and ALL of our target states.
There's a big risk that as voters become more and more consumed by the race for the White House, they'll lose focus on the down-ballot races that will determine which party controls redistricting.

But YOU can help us make sure that doesn't happen. Rush a donation now to help us win the fight for fair maps in New Hampshire and all over the country this November:
