All On The Line

President Obama helped launch All On The Line one year ago to bolster the fight against gerrymandering. He knew that fair maps would be essential to fair elections and a stronger democracy.

To celebrate our anniversary, folks came together at events across the country to learn about the redistricting process in their state and best practices to organize around fair maps. In-person events and trainings like these are key to empowering leaders in this fight.

Will you help us raise $15,000 by the end of the week to fund local organizing work?

If you've saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately.

Express Donate: $15
Express Donate: $35
Express Donate: $50
Express Donate: $100
Express Donate: $250
Or donate another amount

With the next round of redistricting starting in less than a year, the work we do in the next few months to organize our communities will shape the next decade of politics.


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

"The Democratic voter surge was very real on Super Tuesday"
-- Vox
Sula -- First the good news: The high turnout in the Super Tuesday primaries showed that people are excited to vote a Democrat into the White House!

Now the not-so-great news: If we can't get turnout just as high for down-ballot races, we could end up losing the elections that will be critical to fair redistricting.
Will you help the NDRC increase Democratic turnout in key target states?

Look, it's clear that Democrats MUST win the White House in 2020. Trump is an existential threat, no doubt about it. But I'm concerned because it seems like everyone's paying attention only to the presidential election and not to what's happening down the ballot.

If Democrats don't focus on state and local races, we risk a repeat of 2010, when Republicans swept statehouses and governor's offices and were able to manipulate the maps for a decade. If that happens it won't matter which Democrat wins the presidency because the GOP will be able to stop all of our progressive policies!

The NDRC has big plans to invest in races in our nine target states -- important places like Ohio, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Texas -- to make sure Democrats get out to the polls in high numbers. But it all depends on your financial support.

Will you pitch in to help Democrats win at every level in November?

A.G. Holder: If the NDRC is successful in undoing rigged maps, we will be able to achieve a system in which everyone's vote counts.
