|Team, last week the Supreme Court ruled in favor of partisan gerrymandering. It was a shocking blow which makes it easier for Republicans to disenfranchise voters.|
But the GOP’s partisan gerrymandering isn’t simply unfair, it’s a tactic used to systematically silence millions of voters and lock Democrats out of office nationwide. We cannot let them succeed. That’s why our Unrig the Map program is leading the charge to fight back. But we urgently need your help to get to 50,000 signatures. Will you join me and add your name to end partisan gerrymandering?
|The Washington Post reports that the court’s 5-to-4 decision “brings new urgency to [the] Democratic fight to win state seats.”|
That’s absolutely right. With the 2020 census right around the corner, Democratic governors are now the strongest line of defense against Republican gerrymandering.
SIGN ON: We need 237 signatures from 28803 to end partisan gerrymandering!
|As the Political Director at the DGA, I work day in and day out to make sure our campaigns are prepared to take on their Republican opponents and have the resources they need to win.|
Last cycle, we won SEVEN redistricting targets with our Unrig the Map program! Now we’re launching an all-out offensive to elect strong Democrats and flip five key states from red to blue ahead of the census and redistricting in 2021.
If we can win these races and secure fair maps, Democrats can deal a crushing blow to Trump’s agenda. But everything depends on what we do right now. Please, speak out before it’s too late: Add your name to put a stop to partisan gerrymandering!
|Thank you for taking action on this critical issue.|
