New York Times: A Potential Rarity in American Politics: A Fair Congressional Map "This year's congressional map, despite continued gerrymandering, is poised to have a nearly equal number of districts that lean Democratic and Republican."

But A.G. Holder warned about the dangers of growing complacent, especially with these state updates over the last month:

→ The SCOTUS’s ruling reversed the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision picking legislative maps.
→ Ohio’s Republican-controlled redistricting commission passed its FOURTH set of gerrymandered legislative maps.
→ Florida Governor Ron DeSantis vetoed gerrymandered congressional maps because they apparently weren’t manipulated enough for him.
→ The Louisiana Legislature voted to override the governor’s veto on their unfair congressional map that limited Black voters’ ability to elect candidates of their preference.

If you’re able, will you make a donation to All On The Line? We’re helping voters challenge gerrymandered maps in court while continuing to advocate for a fair process in states that are still drawing maps.

RGENT: Roe v. Wade is in SERIOUS danger of being overturned -- putting millions of Americans' rights in jeopardy -- and Justice Sonia Sotomayor is raising the alarm:
Sotomayor: 'Will this institution survive the stench this creates?'

Team -- We MUST show the far-right majority on the Supreme Court that we will not stand by while Republicans wage a war on abortion rights in this country.

The latest case before the Court could be the one that OVERTURNS Roe v. Wade and erases a vital constitutional right. The threat is so dire that Justice Sotomayor is DIRECTLY calling out the dangers.

Stand with Justice Sotomayor: Sign our Democratic petition calling on the Supreme Court to DEFEND reproductive rights and SAVE Roe v. Wade!

Sula – FiveThirtyEight just confirmed what The New York Times reported a couple of weeks ago: Redistricting will be fairer this cycle than in 2011!

They’re both right. And we have this movement to thank! If you can, will you rush a donation right away to help us keep fighting for fair maps all over the country? Our work isn’t over by a long shot.

We’re celebrating, but we’re not resting – because even at this stage, Republicans are refusing to let go of their gerrymandering! They’re pulling every trick in the book, they’re whining to the U.S. Supreme Court, and when that doesn’t work, they’re investing in stacking state supreme courts with their handpicked candidates. If we let up now, they could reverse all the gains we’ve made toward fairness.

So we need you to stick with us, Sula. If you’re proud of our victories but know the fight isn’t over yet, will you pitch in now to help us keep working hard for fair redistricting?


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