New investments announced: TUESDAY, June 30th. End-of-quarter deadline: MONDAY, June 29th. How much we invest depends on YOU! Chip in!
Big news, Sula: We're planning to make our second round of 2020 investments THIS TUESDAY, June 30.

But here's the catch: Where and how much we invest depends on how much we can raise this quarter.

So we're moving our end-of-quarter deadline up one day, to Monday, June 29. The amount we raise by midnight on Monday will determine how much we can invest in our target states and even whether we can expand the map!
We've never needed you more.
Can you pitch in ahead of our most important deadline yet?

Tribute to Almirante Fernando Eduardo Studart Wiemer
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce, we regretfully inform you of the passing of Almirante Fernando Eduardo Studart Wiemer, former Military Adviser at the Permanent Mission of Brazil to the United Nations (2013-15) and longtime Chamber affiliate and supporter.  Almirante Wiemer’s dialogue with the Chamber strengthened ties between Brazil and the United States and furthered the Chamber’s mission of promoting trade and investment between the two nations.  His interaction with the Brazilian community was highlighted through his dedicated support of the celebrations of Brazil’s Independence Day and Our Lady of Aparecida, the patron of Brazil, at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Born in Fortaleza, Brazil, Almirante Wiemer graduated from the Naval Academy in 1970.  In 1973, he was promoted to First Lieutenant and served on various submarines in Rio Grande do Sul, Goiás, and Humaitá.  In 1981, he assumed the post of Warning Commander of the Guarda-Marinha Brito, his first command at sea, and later assumed command of the Navy hospital ship Carlos Chagas.  He was designated to serve in the Military Cabinet of the Presidency of the Republic, a position he held from 1987-90.  Following, he commanded the submarine Tupi.  In 1995, he was assigned to serve at the Naval War School, overseeing a course on Maritime Policy and Strategy.  From 1997-2001, he served in the Cabinet of the Naval Ministry as Advisor to the Chief of Staff, Chief Parliamentary Counsel, and Deputy Chief of Staff.  He was then appointed Commander of the Naval Academy and subsequently promoted to Vice Admiral.  At the Ministry of Defense, he served as Deputy Chief of Staff and Director of Policy and Strategy.  He later held the positions of Commander of the Second Naval District, Fleet Commander in Chief, General Director for Navy Personnel, Commander of Naval Operations, General Director of Navigation, and ultimately, Chief of Staff of the Navy.
Almirante Wiemer was awarded numerous Brazilian and foreign medals throughout his career, including: Ordem do Mérito da Defesa, Ordem do Mérito Naval, Ordem do Mérito Militar, Ordem do Mérito Aeronáutico, Ordem do Rio Branco, Ordem Mérito Cartográfico, Ordem do Mérito Judiciário Militar, Medalha da Vitória, Medalha do Serviço Militar, Medalha do Mérito Marinheiro, Medalha do Pacificador, Medalha do Mérito Santos Dumont, Medalha Marechal Trompowsky, and Medalha do Mérito Tamandaré.  He is survived by his wife, Helena Barthem Wiemer; three children, Úrsula, Rafael, and Juliana; and four grandchildren, Natália, Bernardo, Pedro, and Gustavo.

All On The Line
Chip in to show the Supreme Court we don't need them to end gerrymandering. We have you.

 Today marks the anniversary of the Supreme Court's refusal to put guardrails on partisan gerrymandering in the Rucho v. Common Cause decision.

That decision was an important one in a series of Supreme Court opinions that demonstrate how the Court's conservative majority is no friend of democracy. In April, for example, they refused to extend Wisconsin's absentee ballot receipt deadline, which would have helped ensure that Wisconsinites could safely vote in the middle of the public health emergency -- and have that vote count.

It's clear: John Roberts, Brett Kavanaugh, and the other conservative justices behind these decisions have empowered politicians to tip the scales of this year's elections and manipulate district lines in 2021.

These bad SCOTUS decisions set up a tough road to achieving fairness. Thankfully, our plan was built to succeed regardless of reckless Supreme Court rulings.

All On The Line built a state-by-state approach to ensure the American people can get fair maps during the redistricting process. We're counting on you to support it. Will you chip in to help us hit our end-of-month goal of raising $25,000?

A.G. Holder said the Court's decision in Rucho "tears at the very fabric of our democracy." But if the Supreme Court won't protect our democracy, we have to.

We are called on to build the kind of country we want moving forward.

Thanks for answering the call,
-- The AOTL Team
