~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
When we announced our partnership with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC) a month ago, we knew we had a huge opportunity to make progress towards a more fair democracy.
What we didn't know was just how quickly our volunteers and supporters would throw themselves into this mission.
Now is the time to get to work -- to help end gerrymandering, and build a better, more fair democracy. Join us today.
Over the past month, we've seen tens of thousands of Americans sign on to get involved. Two weeks ago, we made huge electoral progress in Virginia and New Jersey. And last night, OFA supporters from across the country joined Attorney General Holder on a kickoff call to discuss our strategy.
Here's what the former Attorney General wrote in Crooked Media yesterday:
"Gerrymandering is quite simply an attack on our democracy. It undercuts the tenet of one person, one vote ... together, we [must] engage in dialogue to start educating, organizing, and mobilizing to bend our democracy toward fairness."
Making fairer maps across the country won't be easy. The process is different in every state. We're starting at a big disadvantage, and time isn't on our side -- today's candidates, ballot initiatives, and legal decisions are setting the stage for the crucial redistricting process in 2021.
But if we start organizing now, we can make a huge difference. We need all hands on deck. It's a fight we can -- and must -- win.

"Gerrymandering is quite simply an attack on our democracy....
EVEN THE CONSERVATIVE SOURCES MAKE THE MISTAKE OF CALLING OUR REPUBLIC A DEMOCRACY.
Remember ... "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands ... There is nothing in the pledge about a democracy.
Oh boy. Eric Holder in the mix. These vile creatures will never stop or go away. It's a fight of enormous proportions. They will never give up easy.
It's like living in a house infested with termites -- when will the roof fall in?
Great analogy, JB!
