UPDATE: Unfortunately, the Supreme Court didn't bring closure on the merits of extreme partisan gerrymandering. But we can still win this war to terminate gerrymandering.

This is a call to action -- we've identified four state-based initiatives to end gerrymandering step by step. Learn more here. Common Cause and others are continuing the battle in the courts with cases that address the justices’ concerns, so your continued support of this campaign is also incredibly appreciated.


*** 

The Supreme Court has heard cases of Democratic gerrymandering in Maryland and of Republican gerrymandering in Wisconsin, and both instances are completely unacceptable. 

I'm determined to terminate gerrymandering and its poisonous impact on our democracy. That's why I've partnered with Common Cause, a nonprofit focused on promoting open, honest and accountable government.

While we anxiously await court decisions, we must keep up the momentum at the state and local level to end this scourge on our democracy. We're so close to our $150,000 goal, which won't just help with these Supreme Court cases, but the many fights still to come. 

Please chip in whatever you can afford today – we are closer than we've ever been to defeating gerrymandering, but we must keep up the pressure. 

Even $3 will send a powerful message that the citizens of America won't stand idly by as politicians protect their jobs instead of earn them. And, because we must win these cases, I'll personally match every single donation that comes in.


Thank you for everything, 

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Thank you, thank you, thank you

We hit a major milestone over the long weekend, crossing the $100,000 line. That means I'm on the hook for over six figures. I can't thank all of you enough. 

As I've been helping to recruit Republicans to join the amicus briefs in support of our side in Gill vs. Whitford, I've been reminding them of your great support. I think you'll all be very happy with some of the great names that come out on the right side of this issue when we file the briefs today, but for now I want to thank all of you for being a part of this. We can truly change our country for the better.

Now, I'd like to challenge you. I'm really excited that I have to cut a check for over 100k. Let's make it more. Share with your friends, keep fighting. Do it now.
