Subject: Join a call with AG Holder on Wednesday 2/26

Friend -- One year after launching All On The Line, we're hopping on the phone with Eric Holder to hear a big announcement about the fight ahead.

RSVP here to join the call with AG Holder on Wednesday at 8pm EST!

Organizing is essential to making sure we win the fight for fair maps. We feel the impacts of gerrymandering locally every day -- from our families' access to affordable health care to the lack of gun violence prevention laws to protect our communities. And next year when redistricting starts, we're going to need to hold our local elected officials accountable and ensure they draw fair maps. That's why we're building a strong grassroots organizing network across the country.

Don't miss what AG Holder has to say. Join the call to learn about what's ahead in this fight and how you can be involved:

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
When we launched All On The Line a year ago, we knew it would only be successful if dedicated people like you got involved in this movement. One year later, I'm so proud of the work we've accomplished together -- but we have a long, tough fight ahead of us. A fight that can be won. A fight that must be won.

That's why I'm excited to announce the first-ever AOTL Grassroots Redistricting Summit -- a first-of-its-kind gathering of leaders in our campaign to end gerrymandering.

We know that gerrymandering undermines democracy and prevents progress on the issues Americans care the most about. At the summit, we'll roll up our sleeves and dig into our grassroots advocacy strategy. We'll train attendees on the best ways to leverage their power in their communities and with their elected officials.

To learn more about the summit and be the first to know when registration applications open, sign up here.

We can't go into 2021 unprepared. We have the capacity to fight gerrymandering -- but it will only happen if we have a mobilized, engaged American people. All On The Line is galvanizing people to become leaders in this movement -- and this summit will be key to that effort. And after connecting with other local leaders at the summit, people will go back to their communities and share what they've learned. This is how we will build power in our grassroots movement.

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

Book clubs will be hosted the week of March 23rd → Register your AOTL Book Club event here so folks in your community can RSVP and start reading!

Our next book is "Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America" by Ari Berman. As a journalist, Ari has dedicated his career to covering voting rights -- we're excited that he'll be joining us for a fireside chat you'll be able to stream at your book club event.

Further down in this email, I'm going to ask for your help in defeating vote-suppressing Republicans. (You can also donate now by clicking here.) But first, let me explain why.

Republican efforts to suppress the vote are getting more egregious as the stakes in the 2020 election get higher.
    ➔ In Wisconsin, conservatives have attempted to force more than 200,000 people off the voting rolls -- but a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel analysis found that the vast majority are regular voters. (Don't forget that in 2016, Donald Trump won Wisconsin by only 22,000 votes.)
    ➔ Republican-controlled Georgia -- where Governor Brian Kemp defeated Stacey Abrams after suppressing the vote as secretary of state -- recently kicked more than 300,000 people off the rolls.
    ➔ And Texas has been cutting early voting sites on the campuses of historically black colleges and universities.
The pattern is clear: When Republicans are scared they can't win, they cheat -- just like they do with gerrymandering. And it means that if we want to stop them and ensure fair maps, we'll have to work even harder to seek out voters and get them to the polls. Because the 2020 election is too important not to get right.

That's why I'm coming to you. We can't win in target states like Wisconsin, Georgia, Texas, and many more without your financial support. Will you pitch in today to defeat vote-suppressing Republicans and secure a decade of fair maps?

Paid for by the National Democratic Redistricting Committee.
