All On The Line
- We talk a lot about holding state legislators accountable during the redistricting process. But in some states, thanks to independent redistricting commissions, the power to draw electoral maps will be directly in the hands of people just like you.

Citizen-led redistricting commissions aim to take map manipulation out of the equation. This might seem like an easy solution to gerrymandering -- but serving on a commission is a huge civic responsibility.

Right now, folks in states like Arizona and Wisconsin are applying to join their state's redistricting commission. And the All On The Line team is running a series of state-specific workshops to help people navigate that process and be prepared to serve if they're chosen.

I'm asking you to chip in to All On The Line's Commission Education Fund so that this essential work can continue. Will you make a donation today?

This work is especially critical in states like Colorado, Michigan, and Wisconsin where 2021 will be the first time that citizen-led commissions are involved in the redistricting process.

The fight to end gerrymandering doesn't end with establishing redistricting commissions. We still need to empower the people serving on these commissions to be strong advocates for fair representation. And we must protect the commissions from politicians who are determined to attack and interfere with redistricting reform just to hold onto their own jobs.

The maps drawn next year will determine the political landscape for the next decade. Can I count on you to help prepare your fellow citizens for the task?

Sula -- Mitch McConnell and his Senate enablers continue to hold up commonsense voting empowerment legislation just four months before the upcoming election.

It's been more than two months since the House passed the HEROES Act, which included $3.6 billion in funding to secure our elections before November. Now, the Senate is finally expected to release their relief bill next week -- and it is rumored to include ZERO funding for election reforms.

We have less than four months to protect our elections. In the past few weeks, thousands of AOTL supporters told McConnell to stop his political gamesmanship -- and we must keep his feet to the fire.

Can we count on you to fuel our Election Protection Advocacy Fund? It provides funding for tools so our supporters can hold partisan politicians like McConnell accountable.

A.G. Holder believes McConnell "has done a whole bunch of unpatriotic things, has really been a force for polarization in this nation... History will not be kind to him." Unfortunately, he's right.

There's no sensible reason why Mitch McConnell won't fully fund legislation to protect our elections. But it's no surprise since he also refuses to pass HR1, another commonsense bill that would expand voting rights and limit partisan gerrymandering.

McConnell's political playbook is clear: suppress the vote this year because it's the first step to putting his party in charge of the redistricting process in 2021.

If we want to restore fair representation to folks in gerrymandered states and make politicians accountable to their constituents in 2021, we must first secure our elections this year by passing commonsense election protections. We need to reach in the toolbox and use every tool available to force McConnell to act now.

Change can't wait! Donate to our Election Protection Advocacy Fund and help us ramp up our resources to make Mitch pass election protections.
