We have UPDATES for you about the fight for fair maps -- let's start with the good news!
➞ In Michigan, the Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission just passed FAIR congressional and state legislative maps!
➞ On top of that, California's Citizens Redistricting Commission also recently adopted FAIR maps -- with unanimous votes!
This is a BIG DEAL, Sula. The Washington Post is reporting that “There has been a redistricting turnaround,” which is both THRILLING and a testament to the power of your support. But our coast-to-coast fight against gerrymandering is far from over:
➞ In Pennsylvania, legislative Republicans are playing tricks to try to push through their manipulated maps.
➞ And 170 congressional district maps have yet to be adopted, including in swing states like Florida and Wisconsin!
The truth is, what happens next is up to us. Will we be able to keep turning things around on redistricting? Or will Republicans in key states be able to force through a decade of rigged maps? Don’t leave it up to chance -- CHIP IN NOW!

Sula -- the media is starting to catch on to the fact that our efforts to stop Republican gerrymandering are having an impact.
Here’s a recap of some of the latest victories in the fight for fair maps:
But Sula, we’re still fighting for fair maps in important states like Pennsylvania, Florida, Kentucky, and more. Nearly 156 congressional district maps have yet to be enacted! So please don’t let up on your support -- we need to see this process through to the end. Will you pitch in now?
Voters made it clear: they want leaders to create a political system that is fair for everyone. But the mandate to restore our democracy is being met with obstruction by hyper-partisan politicians who would rather protect their power at the expense of the people.
During 2021, legislators -- particularly in gerrymandered states -- introduced more than 425 bills in an effort to silence voters and keep extreme politicians safe from real accountability.
Democracy reforms like the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act can halt many of these anti-voting bills altogether or mitigate the damage they’d cause.
All On the Line is committed to building grassroots power to advocate for these pro-democracy bills to become law -- especially as we witness new efforts to undermine our democracy.

In recent elections, conservatives took advantage of a weakened Voting Rights Act and unleashed a wave of voter suppression laws.
They spent 2021 pulling a page from their familiar, anti-democratic playbook once again -- conjuring up new efforts in an attempt to undermine our democracy, restrict voting rights, and manipulate our maps.
In the face of more than 425 voter suppression bills introduced across the country, the All On The Line movement is supporting legislation that would expand voting rights, reform redistricting rules, and make our political system fairer for everyone. But we need your help, Sula!
We started the AOTL Rebuilding Democracy Fund in early 2021 when there were only 100 voter suppression bills introduced -- the stakes are even higher now. We need to take strong action to prevent undemocratic bills like these from becoming law in 2022.
Your donation will help efforts to advocate for reform, empower volunteers to stop anti-democratic voting restrictions, and educate the public on how to ensure fair maps in their state.
All On The Line is the grassroots advocacy campaign supported by the National Redistricting Action Fund. Support our work to end gerrymandering.
