Checking in from the AOTL team to make sure you’ve seen the news that broke since President Obama emailed you -- we’ve got fair congressional maps in Pennsylvania! And the court picked a map submitted by voters we supported!
---------- Forwarded message --------- From: President Obama Subject: Three years ago Date: Tuesday, February 22, 2022
When we launched All On The Line three years ago, I talked about how, when people come together with enough effort and enough passion, we can make things better.
The movement for fair maps is a testament to that idea. The progress we've made would not have been possible without everyone who advocated for their communities at public hearings, submitted written testimonies, or bravely challenged gerrymandered maps in court.
We know these maps will shape this country for the next decade, and we've seen firsthand how gerrymandering can block progress -- even on issues that a majority of Americans agree on.
If Republicans succeed in gerrymandering maps, we know they'll use them to limit voting rights and obstruct progress.
The fight to restore fairness in our democracy won't be solved by any one map. But it's important to remember that every win and loss can have a real impact.
This movement has already achieved so much. I want to thank the thousands of people who joined All On The Line trainings, voters across the country who advocated for their communities, and all those who took action to hold map-drawers accountable. Every phone call, every testimony, every action mattered.
But the fight for fair maps is not over. Even in states where maps were deemed final, voters have sent map drawers back to the drawing board.

GOP gerrymandering bigwig Chris Christie is upset with us – and with state Supreme Courts in Ohio and North Carolina that have ruled in favor of fair redistricting.
“We allowed Barack Obama and Eric Holder to outmaneuver the Republican committees in those states and the RNC…”
– Chris Christie as quoted in Politico
It’s clear the Republicans have not taken their losses in state courts well and we can expect them to spend big on defeating elected judges who upheld fair maps in the 2022 elections. You can bet we’ll be investing big to stop them (Chip in to support our anti-gerrymandering efforts >>)
Christie thinks Republicans should do a better job placing justices on the bench who will support their gerrymandered districts and other gerrymandering tactics.
So, Sula, it looks like we have our work cut out for us. Not only do we still have to work on the ground to stop the GOP from gerrymandering in the first place, and support voters in court, we also have to counter Republican efforts to stack state Supreme Courts to get the redistricting outcomes they want.
Since 2017, the NDRC has executed a comprehensive redistricting strategy that shifts the redistricting power, creating fair districts where Democrats can compete. Our victories have been made possible by our strong community of grassroots supporters.
We know we send a lot of emails, but we think it's important to keep you updated with the latest information on Republican gerrymandering and voter suppression and how we're fighting back -- regardless of whether you choose to donate.
