Team, as a member of the NDRC team, I read about gerrymandering every single day. For the most part, I don’t get surprised anymore by the GOP’s brazen efforts to rig maps in every corner of the country.

But, today, this line jumped out at me:

GOP sees advantage as redistricting hits half-way point. -- The Hill

This is serious, Sula. If we don’t take immediate action, Republican lawmakers will implement the most gerrymandered maps we’ve seen in a generation.

We refuse to let the GOP get away with this -- so here’s how the NDRC is fighting back:

I won’t sugarcoat this -- there’s a lot on the line right now. If we fall short, Republicans could lock in their power for the next decade.

Luckily, we still have time to execute our action plan, fight back, and defend our democracy. But there’s no time to waste, which is why I’m asking: Will you rush a contribution now to help the NDRC keep up the fight for fair maps?

The Guardian spotted four ways Republicans are manipulating the maps:
The Guardian:
These maps show how Republicans are blatantly rigging elections
Dismantling Democratic districts
Diluting the influence of Black voters
Weakening diverse, Democratic-leaning suburbs
Packing Democrats into non-competitive districts
That's the bad news. Here's the good news:
The Hill: Americans are participating in redistricting like never before
Wisconsin Public Radio: Hundreds gather at Capitol to push back on GOP redistricting plan
Florida Politics: [FL] Senate leaders issue rare bipartisan call for deliberate, fair redistricting
Oregon Public Radio: National Democratic [Redistricting Committee] steps in to defend Oregon’s new congressional map
Two roads lay ahead of us: GOP gerrymandering, or FAIR MAPS. Which we end up with depends on you, friend.
Pres. Obama: I know a lot of people are tired of politics right now. We don't have time to be tired. What is required is sustained effort.
Chip in before it's too late

The maps are in. Roughly half the country has proposed or finalized new maps, but some think Democrats have already missed their shot. [Prove them wrong! Rush a contribution now to fight back]

Team, with roughly half of the country having proposed or finalized their new maps, some pundits are writing off Democrats’ chances of fighting back against gerrymandering.

The way we see it, we’re left with two options right now.

  • Option One: We can listen to the pundits, throw up our hands in defeat, and decide it’s too late to stop the Republicans’ gerrymandering plan. They’ll implement manipulated maps and lock in their power for the next decade.

  • Option Two: We can prove them wrong by doubling down on our efforts to build a grassroots army to fight gerrymandering in every corner of the country, mobilizing communities to speak out for fair maps, and, where necessary, supporting voters in lawsuits to fight gerrymandering.

Are you with us? Chip in now to take Option Two and FIGHT BACK against Republican map-rigging.

Look, we know things look bleak right now. But President Obama himself said "I believe activism will prevail over cynicism," and we think he’s right!

We’re ready to do whatever it takes to defend our democracy and stop GOP gerrymandering, but we need your support to power our movement. Will you rush a contribution now to join the fight?

I have two things I need to share with you, friend, but I don't want you to panic. Because as bad as this is going to sound, we have a plan for getting things back on the right track.

The first thing is this headline from Mother Jones: "Republicans Are Erasing Decades of Voting Rights Gains Before Our Eyes"

Don't panic -- fight back!

The second thing is what A.G. Holder said to CNN's Wolf Blitzer a couple of weeks ago: "This is a very troublesome time. I thought that after the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act... we seem to be on an arc that was moving toward greater inclusion when it came to voting. But I think we have certainly seen that reversed over the course of the last couple of years."

Scary stuff, right? But like I said, the NDRC has a plan:

➞ Fight as hard as we can to support getting the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act on President Biden’s desk for his signature

➞ Speak out against voter suppression in the states

➞ Continue working on the ground in more than a dozen states to prevent Republicans from gerrymandering, which compounds the harm of voter suppression

Will you pitch in to help us execute this plan, friend?

Look, I know sometimes things can look bleak. But I promise you that the NDRC will NEVER stop fighting and NEVER stop heeding the words of President Obama, who said that "I believe activism will prevail over cynicism."

The thing is, how much we can accomplish depends on how much support we can raise from this community. And that's why I'm asking you to choose to make a donation today.

If you've saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:
Donate $10Donate $20
Donate $50Donate $100
Donate $150Another amount

We choose to fight. Will you join us?

Art Moments Jakarta Online 2 (AMJO 2) returns on 22.11.21 - 21.12.21 at displaying more than 1200 artworks from 56 exhibitors spanning from 9 countries and 16 cities across Asia and Europe. Equipped with the experience learnt from the hybrid art fair experience in June 2021, AMJO 2 will present physical exhibitions to complement the online experience, in the programme of Encounter Moments and Special Presentations from various reputable Indonesian and international exhibitors.


Art Moments Jakarta is a premium art fair owned by Indonesian art collectors and is managed by a team of experienced art fair organizers based in Jakarta and Singapore. The event is a platform for local and international art galleries to network, educate, exhibit, and engage.

Dear BACCF Members,

The months of November and December are seeing an uptick in activities as in-person events resume.

In this positive context I would like to welcome the BACCF new members that have joined our Chamber to follow the business activities between Brazil and Florida.

On November 29th the BACCF & the Mana Common Group are hosting a luncheon with special value for those interested in art and technology. The “BACCF 2021-Brazil & Miami Connected Tech Luncheon” will feature Moishe Mana, Chairman & CEO of the Mana Group. Mana has committed his life to creating and improving neighborhoods and is launching the urban renewal and community development platform in the Flagler District of downtown Miami. Special guests Roberto Lee, Founder & CEO of Avenue Securities and Flavio Pripas whose experience is in accelerating the Digital Transformation of big companies that invest in startups through the RedPoint eVentures fund will share their experiences. For additional information (click here).

Our events continue December 3rd with a workshop (in Portuguese) presented by Choaib, Paiva e Justo Advogados Associados on the Tax Reform in Brazil, Cryptocurrencies, Tax and Succession legislation. The workshop also will cover investments in Portugal.

Don’t miss the opportunity to provide your company maximum visibility. The BACCF and Consulate General of Brazil in Miami are publishing “O Prático”, a guide in Portuguese to aid businesses and entrepreneurs entering the North American market. The creation of the guide is a direct result of the growth in this sector. Take advantage to place your services in front of your audience. (click here)

The launch of “O Prático” will take place on the December 16th – the evening of the BACCF 2022 elections and year-end celebration. Join us at 6:00PM at the offices of Yellow-Fi Management – please RSVP here. In the event you are unable to join us, please be sure to fill out the proxy form and return to our offices.

I am very happy to share with you my participation in the book “Reform of Corporate Taxation”, where I contributed, along with other colleagues, my vision on the subject aimed at Brazilian entrepreneurs.

We are looking forward to greeting you at our upcoming events.

Abraços,

Alexandre Piquet

As Covid-19 vaccination efforts bring many of the world’s governments and corporations back to semi-normal operating capacity, credit market participants are looking ahead to the emerging risks expected to impact markets in 2022 and beyond. These range from recent, high-profile default concerns for Chinese real estate developers, to ever-present risks like rising inflation, to the more existential concerns tied to climate change and other ESG factors.
