I have a new and important update on our fight to terminate gerrymandering.
After the Supreme Court ruling to send the Wisconsin case back to the lower court to establish standing and several other decisions at the end of their term, along with the retirement of Justice Kennedy, I’ve gotten messages of concern from many of you about the possibility of tackling gerrymandering through the courts.
While I wish we’d won the case, the legal process will continue and I don’t want any of you to lose hope. But we don’t have to wait for the courts. Join me with renewed energy to terminate gerrymandering state by state at the ballot box this November. Regardless of the court decisions, momentum is on our side. Believe me – I know how hard it was to reform California’s redistricting process. We failed four times and finally secured a victory to give an independent commission the power to draw our state legislative lines by barely a point! Two years later, when we expanded our reform to Congressional seats, we won by 22 points. And earlier this year, Ohio voters approved redistricting reform by nearly 50 points.
The tides have turned, and we will continue winning. Let’s work together with these citizen-powered movements in Utah, Colorado, Michigan, and Missouri to terminate gerrymandering once and for all:
