We’ve known for a while now that the Supreme Court is not a friend of democracy. In recent months, the six conservative justices have shown that they aren’t big fans of fair redistricting, either:

Your support is critical to the execution of that work, Sula. Will you pitch in whatever you can today to help the fight for fair maps?
There are more threats from SCOTUS on the horizon. First, the justices could hear more redistricting cases in the coming months and years.
