The Supreme Court has chipped away at the Voting Rights Act for 9 years. The diminished Voting Rights Act has already played a key role in the 2022 elections via redistricting. — POLITICO | The time to protect voting rights is now. DONATE TO THE NDRC


The Supreme Court’s relentless attacks on voting rights are already having a tangible impact on our democracy. Their decision in Shelby spurred states with a history of discriminatory voting practices to immediately pass new laws restricting the right to vote. And now they may be coming after another section of the Voting Rights Act:

“Federal judges threw out Alabama’s map in the spring, but it was reinstated for 2022 by the Supreme Court, which ruled 5-4 that it was too close to the election to draw a new map. A federal judge in Georgia wrote in another case that the state’s map may violate the Voting Rights Act while letting it stand for 2022...”


And Sula, this is only the beginning. If we don’t dig in our heels and fight with everything we’ve got to defend the right to vote and end GOP gerrymandering, our democracy is in serious trouble.

That’s why we’ve been working furiously to support Democrats running for office in districts and states on our list of Democracy Targets. So far, we’re targeting races in 17 states across the country, including state House seats, governor’s seats, secretary of state seats, and more. And that’s just one part of our plan!

We’ve been doing this work for years, and we’ve got a winning strategy — but we’re counting on supporters like you to help us keep going every step of the way. And with the midterms approaching fast, time is running short!

The ultra-conservative SCOTUS majority isn't done wreaking havoc on our democracy. The Court just announced they’re taking up Moore v. Harper, a case involving "independent state legislature" theory – a fringe, right-wing legal argument that could make state legislatures the sole authority over all manner of election laws.

Overturning Roe showed just how extreme the Court has become – its ultra-conservative majority is willing to overlook decades of precedent while answering to a partisan, right-wing agenda over the Constitution. We need to be prepared.

If state legislatures are given sole power over our elections, we need to be sure that leadership reflects our values, and supports free and fair elections. To do this, we need to come together to grow our Democratic power in state legislatures across the country. It's the only way to protect our democracy from a potentially hostile SCOTUS ruling.

It’s vital that we lay the groundwork now to elect state Democrats this fall to protect our democracy from right-wing attacks. Will you chip in $7 right now to help fuel our grassroots movement to elect pro-democracy Democrats to state legislatures across the country?

Over the last term, SCOTUS managed to repeal gun safety measures, undermine the EPA’s power, and ignore nearly half a century of precedent to overturn Roe v. Wade.

They’re leaving our rights, our safety, and our freedoms up to individual states, knowing Republicans have spent decades building power in state legislatures.

Growing our Democratic power is our best chance at defending the states against right-wing extremism – we need strong Democrats in state legislatures across the country who will fight to protect our democracy, our values, and our hard-won progress.

Can you chip in $7, $25 or whatever you can budget right now to help build Democratic power in state legislatures across the country to defend our democracy against a hostile SCOTUS?
