Sula -- The Center for American Progress recently released a report on the impacts of partisan gerrymandering. While not surprising, the findings are damning: gerrymandering is effectively disenfranchising millions of Americans.
Redistricting is a civil rights issue. That's why AG Holder and President Obama have taken up the fight against manipulated maps and have asked you to join this grassroots movement to end gerrymandering.
The CAP report found that unfairly drawn congressional districts shifted an average of 59 seats in the House of Representatives during the 2012, 2014, and 2016 elections -- impacting the representation of approximately 42 million Americans.
CAP described the findings in very clear terms: "The inescapable conclusion is that gerrymandering is effectively disenfranchising millions of Americans. This should be considered a critical situation."
Map manipulation attempts to silence the voices of voters -- it's how states like Michigan saw Democrats win the popular vote from 2012 to 2016, yet Republicans held a decisive advantage at every level of government.
