 When A.G. Holder emailed you last week, he recognized a number of fair map wins that are monumental for voters across the country!

He said: “our movement has effectively blocked Republicans from replicating their 2011 gerrymandering in many states.”

But, he also vocalized that the fight must go on since we still have states finalizing maps, voters challenging gerrymandered maps in court, and states that may end up redrawing maps after the 2022 midterm elections -- especially since Republicans continue to use every tool at their disposal to lock in power.

If you’re in the position to do so, can I count on you to make a donation to ensure that we’re fully equipped to protect fair maps and the will of the voters for years to come?

-- Brianna

P.S. You can read A.G. Holder’s full message below to find out how we should respond as we watch Republican “cravenness reach new heights.”

---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: A.G. Holder
Subject: I wanted to share this with you
Date: Friday, March 11, 2021

Friend -- Voters in North Carolina and Pennsylvania scored decisive wins this week in U.S. Supreme Court decisions that assured they’ll vote with fair congressional maps in place for the 2022 elections.

In the image below, you can see that there has been a slew of recent rulings in lawsuits that have advanced fair redistricting -- several of which our movement directly supported. You can directly contribute to everything we do in our mission to protect democracy, including this kind of work, here.

NC Status: Fair congressional maps adopted by state court and confirmed for 2022 elections; court-ordered 2023 redraw anticipated PA Status: Fair congressional map adopted by state court and confirmed for 2022 elections; federal litigation ongoing with potential 2024 election impacts OH Status: Gerrymandered congressional maps overturned once by state court; state litigation ongoing with potential 2022 impacts WI Status: Most extreme gerrymander rejected by state court; federal litigation ongoing with potential 2022 impacts

As you can see, our movement has effectively blocked Republicans from replicating their 2011 gerrymandering in many states, but we still have our work cut out for us to secure fair maps for the decade.

We know Republicans have proven time and again that they will do whatever it takes in these states and elsewhere to preserve partisan gerrymandering so they can lock in their own power.

It began in 2011 with their brazenly gerrymandered maps and continued when the conservative majority on the Supreme Court refused to put guardrails on partisan gerrymandering.

This year, we’ve witnessed their cravenness reach new heights with the obstruction of badly needed voting rights legislation and this latest judicial scheme to invalidate state court rulings, which could erode our federal system as we know it.

We know what we’re up against. We know the fight lives on in these four states and many others. And we know that every contribution made will help sustain our momentum and better prepare us for the fight ahead.

Will you pitch in $10, or whatever amount makes sense for you, to continue fighting in and out of court for the future of our democracy?

A year ago, it seemed like a done deal that Republicans could gerrymander their way into guaranteed power. Just look at these headlines from redistricting experts Ari Berman and David Daley written last summer.

→ GOP Could Retake the House in 2022 Just by Gerrymandering Four Southern States
→ Republicans can win the next elections through gerrymandering alone

Fast forward to last week when the Supreme Court allowed a fair map to stand in North Carolina -- one of the four southern states that could have given the GOP an easy path to the House majority.

Like President Obama said, this movement is part of the reason why the House majority won’t be determined just by the way the maps are drawn. Chip in to support this work.

While our movement did help stop a power grab, the fight isn’t over. Ari Berman’s latest piece on voting rights? It defined the new Republican strategy: “gerrymander, suppress, subvert.”

The map manipulation will continue -- and so will the egregious voter suppression efforts. We’ll be ready, but we could really use your support.

Will you make a donation to help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 by midnight?

PITCH FOR A FAIR FINAL FIVE! →

It’s March and you know what that means: it’s time for the Final Five! Don’t worry, we’re not messing with any tournament formats, but there will still be plenty of court action and hopefully some upsets.

That’s right: only five states are remaining that have not yet enacted congressional maps ahead of the 2022 elections: New Hampshire, Missouri, Louisiana, Florida, and Ohio (that’s still 59 congressional seats!).

Now at a glance, you might not see any layups for fair maps when looking at these five states. But with All On The Line’s full-court press, we might see some Cinderella stories in places where fair congressional maps might have once seemed like a fairy tale:

  • NEW HAMPSHIRE: Gov. Sununu has promised to veto gerrymandered maps before and has called the ones passed by the House “funky.” He’s hoping the Senate improves the maps passed by the House, but if they don’t, we’ll need to hold him to his promise.
  • MISSOURI: Even with control of the legislature and governor’s mansion, Republicans are having an internal scrimmage to see how far they can push their extreme gerrymander.
  • LOUISIANA: Gov. John Bel Edwards just used his gubernatorial veto to block a map that failed to create a second district where Black voters could elect their preferred candidate. The legislature may attempt a veto override, so this one is in overtime.
  • FLORIDA: Gov. DeSantis worked redistricting into his presidential campaign game plan at the expense of Floridians. He presented one of the most extreme gerrymanders we’ve seen and threatened to veto the legislature’s maps that are less extreme than his.
  • OHIO: Despite the state Supreme Court striking down the first congressional map, the Republican-controlled commission keeps shooting their shot and passing gerrymandered maps. We’re supporting voters who are challenging their latest attempt in court.

There are two common threads in all of these states: 1.) The most extreme map manipulators in each state are running into a tough defense and 2.) We’re running an active offense -- with hard-hitting digital ads that connect voters and their elected officials, through our work to support voters in lawsuits that demand fair maps in the courts, and other plays to make voters heard.

Can you dig deep with a last-second contribution so that we can put gerrymandering on the bench once and for all?

Thanks for being our teammate in the fight for our democracy,
The AOTL Team

You've probably heard that we're transitioning into a new phase of redistricting. The deal is, many states have adopted their maps. Some are fair – and we're working to defend those where necessary. Some have been gerrymandered by Republicans – and our affiliates are supporting voters who are challenging those maps in court. What this means is that the fight isn't over.

We want your opinion on some key issues at this point in our fight for fair redistricting. Will you take our short survey?

On top of ongoing litigation, we have more work to do: We're committed to holding Republicans accountable for the gerrymandering they've done in 2021 and 2022. We're also committed to supporting candidates in the 2022 elections who will defend fair maps. All of this work will determine the future of redistricting.

Will you share your thoughts as we make the transition to our next phase?
Take our short survey.

Recent wins:
✅ Voters in North Carolina and Pennsylvania will use fair maps this fall thanks to SCOTUS denying Republicans' last-ditch attempts to install gerrymandered maps.
✅ The Wisconsin Supreme Court empowered voters by picking a map submitted by Governor Evers over the Republican-drawn gerrymandered map.
 Ohio voters have challenged gerrymandered maps multiple times and won. Just last night, the Ohio Supreme Court struck down gerrymandered legislative maps for the THIRD time!

Wins like these were only possible because fair map advocates like you were willing to get involved. Help AOTL continue to fight for fair maps -- make a donation!

States on the horizon:
➡️ Legislators in New Hampshire passed a gerrymandered congressional map this morning -- but the governor already promised to veto it!
➡️ The Supreme Court allowed Alabama’s gerrymandered congressional map to be used in the 2022 midterm elections -- but plan to hear oral arguments on this discriminatory map this fall.
➡️ Republicans in Ohio have drawn many gerrymandered maps -- luckily, the Ohio Supreme Court keeps deeming them unconstitutional and sending them back to the drawing board.

Like President Obama said: “The fight for fair maps is not over.”

There are five states that still don’t have a congressional map for the midterm elections. And recent court decisions have opened the door for other maps to be redrawn down the road.
