All On The Line
The Washington Post laid out why we have a state-based organizing approach: "Activists fighting what they view as unfair drawing of district lines said they now must intensify their strategy."

Thermometer to $100,000

The article outlines exactly what we're up against. The Supreme Court decided partisan gerrymanders are beyond the reach of federal courts. That decision "opened the door to a patchwork of outcomes in different states."

Long story short, we can't trust the process will just yield fair maps. We need to fight for them. And the fight will look different in every state. That's why we're asking you to invest in this fight by donating to our grassroots response fund.

As AG Holder was quoted as saying in the article, we're now going to have to go state by state to protect people's voting rights. With your help and investment, we can empower grassroots activists to overcome the obstacles to fair maps.

Sula -- The election in Virginia earlier this month confirmed that fair maps really do put power back into the hands of voters. When the people of Virginia were no longer forced to vote under racially gerrymandered maps, the will of the voters prevailed.

This is clearly a win. But as AG Eric Holder said in his email to you: the more that we invest in building a citizen-movement rooted in our shared belief of fairness, the more desperate map manipulators and their allies will try to paint us as out-of-touch.

We're already seeing it happen -- from Wall Street Journal opinion pieces to the floor of the North Carolina state senate. Map manipulators are spreading extreme rhetoric trying to tear down our movement.

All On The Line is committed to building this movement and holding politicians accountable for their extreme rhetoric -- and their disregard for voters' voices. Our team has committed to raising $25,000. Chip in $5 to help get us over the finish line.

Did you see AG Holder's note? I want to make sure you read it before our mid-month goal tonight. Take a look...

Friend -- For the first time this decade, Virginians were able to vote on a map for the House of Delegates that was not racially gerrymandered. You'd think a level playing field in our elections should be celebrated by everyone who cares. But after the election, we got a look at how our opponents will paint our victories.

The Wall Street Journal ran not one, but two, columns attacking me and our movement directly. In one, titled "Eric Holder Takes Virginia" the author accuses of us plotting to take over more than a dozen states. Our only plan is to make sure voters get a chance to vote in fair districts so that their representatives match the desires of the people. And if that means getting the grassroots to focus on redistricting, or as the author puts it "concentrat[ing] the liberal mind on the redistricting project," so be it.

Our opponents are supported by relentless conservative media and well-funded special interests. We now know that to be successful we need to invest in our strategic plans and also combat their false attacks. Can you chip in to help us reach our mid-month goal of $25,000 before Thursday's deadline?

The Wall Street Journal's opinion pages may be full of cynical and wrongheaded takes on what's happening across this country, but the awful impact of gerrymandering is real. That's why ordinary folks are rising up to fight back. What happened earlier this month was not about anyone "taking Virginia" besides the Virginians who went to the ballot box to demand their rightful claim of a government that reflects their will.

I wanted to share that headline with you to let you know what we're up against. The more that we invest in building a citizen-movement rooted in our shared belief of fairness -- the more desperate map manipulators and their allies will try to paint us as out-of-touch "liberals" bent on gaining power. But don't worry - I'm prepared to fight for our democracy.

Our mid-month deadline is in just two days and it would mean a lot to me if we're able to hit the $25,000 goal our team has set. Can you make a donation to help us reach it?

Take a stand against the special interests and pundits seeking to tear down our movement.

Thank you,
Eric H. Holder, Jr.

For years, Virginians were forced to vote in districts that were racially gerrymandered -- diminishing the voices of thousands of African Americans. But the courts ordered those unfair districts to be redrawn ahead of this month's elections, which meant that, for the first time in a decade, the election's outcome wasn't predetermined by politicians who drew the lines. Instead, the results were decided the way they should be -- by the voters on Election Day.

Virginia is a great success story, but there's more work to do -- and our path to fairness in each state will vary greatly. That's why All On The Line has set its sights on ten target states where the battle for fair maps is already underway. Each will require a unique plan and unique resources.

Can I count on you to help All On The Line put its state plans into action and reach its end-of-month goal of $100,000?

We need your help to build the infrastructure we need to win this fight -- because the maps drawn in 2021 depend on the ground game we build now. It's going to take a dedicated grassroots effort and localized approach to carry forward the successes in Virginia to even more states.

We know this state-level approach works. This month, as congressional maps were being redrawn in North Carolina, our supporters there came together to call for fair maps. And in Texas, folks are headed to public hearings across the state to make their voices heard on what a fair map looks like for their community.

When All On The Line succeeds in its target states, we'll not only have a shot at fair maps -- we'll also have a chance to break through the obstruction that's preventing progress on so many issues we care about. From attacks on women's health and reproductive freedom in Georgia, to the lack of action on gun violence in Ohio, to the refusal to expand Medicaid to hundreds of thousands of residents in Florida, we've seen time and time again how progress is stalled or reversed by state legislatures that don't reflect the will of the people because of gerrymandered maps. We have a chance to change this in 2021.

All On The Line's grassroots efforts are crucial to ending gerrymandering and securing a path for progress in the next decade. Investing in this movement at the state level is our best chance at achieving fair maps. That's why you'll be hearing from the All On The Line State Directors in the weeks ahead. These experts on the ground will share what's at stake and how we can win this fight in their state -- and most importantly, how you can make that critical difference.

We're already facing obstacles to fair maps in states like North Carolina, Michigan and New Hampshire. In fact, legislators in North Carolina not only replaced a gerrymandered map with another gerrymandered map -- State Senator Jerry Tillman also stood on the floor of the General Assembly and claimed the maps "belong" to his party.

This rhetoric exposes how map manipulators justify putting political interests ahead of their constituents. And this fight will only get harder as more and more states begin the redistricting process.

We set an ambitious end-of-month goal of $100,000. We know we can reach it, but only if our grassroots from New York step up and make a donation. Can we count on you?

We appreciate your support,

This email from Barack Obama makes a really strong point about All On The Line's grassroots approach. When we succeed in our target states, we not only have a shot at fair maps -- we also have a chance to overcome the obstruction that's preventing progress.

That's why All On The Line needs to build our grassroots ground game in key states now. With a strong grassroots effort, I truly believe fair maps are possible.

Take a moment to read this email from President Obama below. And if you're inspired to invest in our ground game, you can donate to All On The Line here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/nov2019-endofmonth
