We've taken big strides in Virginia and Wisconsin lately -- but next year, we'll be facing tough redistricting battles in all of our target states.

All On The Line is built to be a check against the politicians and special interests who will be fighting to protect their power in every state. We need supporters like you to invest in the foundation of this movement now to ensure we have the resources we need to be successful in the fight ahead.

Chip in now to tell AG Holder you have his back in this fight.

Thanks for your support,

The Key Themes That Will Shape Industries and Markets in 2020
Our global team of economists, political risk experts and industry analysts outline some of the key themes that will impact industries, countries and regions in 2020.
The Future Of Farming
AgTech wil be a major growth industry in both developed and emerging markets over the next decade. As with other sectors, we believe AgTech will gradually move towards the provision of services, where farmers pay for a specific solution either on a one-off basis or through a subscription. We also see huge potential for expanding use of drones.
Face Mask
Coronavirus In Focus
Aside from the tragic human cost, the SARS-like coronavirus that first infected people in the Chinese city of Wuhan will negatively impact global economic growth in 2020. While Chinese authorities are better prepared to contain an epidemic compared to 2003 during the SARS outbreak, the more stringent curbs on travel and greater awareness of epidemics in the general public are likely to cause a decline in economic activity, with implications for both China’s and the global economy.
Trade War
Trade War Truce?
Global trade tensions have eased at the start of 2020. Most notably, the US and China signed a ‘Phase One’ trade deal on January 15, which has de-escalated the trade confrontation between the two countries. Elsewhere, we believe that the UK and the EU will reach a new agreement on goods trade in the coming months. However, we see strong chance of a major re-escalation in US-China trade tensions over the medium term, particularly once the US November elections are past.
What Will The 2020s Bring For Tech?
The 2010s was the decade of tech. Tech companies have become larger, with three - Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft - being valued at over USD1trn during the decade. We highlight three key trends in the 2020s: regulation, regionalisation and automation. We believe the latter will be the most important, and policymakers must start dealing with it now, as the Fourth Industrial Revolution will happen. It is a trend whose overall impact could be missed due to a lack of focus.

Hi Sula -- I wanted to reach out to officially introduce myself. I'm the Finance and Grants Manager on the AOTL Team and part of my job is to make sure we're bringing in enough grassroots donations to keep us on budget.

When AG Holder emailed you a few days ago, he asked that you chip in to our mid-month goal to ensure we stay on track with the benchmarks in our state plans. We have a goal of raising $25,000 by the end of the weekend -- I did the math and in order to hit it, we need 26 people from New York to step up.

Will you donate $15? You can use this personalized link to direct your donation toward our goal: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/ehh-mm?email=sula_costa%40yahoo.com

Thanks for your support,
Isa Roa

Equity issuance in Brazil has begun what looks like robust recovery. But the decision for Brazilian companies to go public is complex and not always straightforward. Join the Chamber at Nasdaq where a panel will explore the IPO process, different aspects of what goes into the decision to go public including the business environment, and differences between Brazilian and international offerings. Legal issues figure importantly, especially concerning current and possible changes to regulation and adapting corporate governance to become a public company. Once the company decides to go ahead, the panel will look at next steps during the preparation of the IPO and feedback from investors. Finally, the panel will look at IPO activity in 2019 and offer expectations for 2020, address what portfolio managers are looking for in terms of issuance, and discuss the current environment for start-ups in Brazil and the potential for creating new public companies.

Every time we try to make progress, map manipulators dig their heels in. Wisconsin is the perfect example.

AP: Wisconsin Republicans dismiss nonpartisan redistricting plan by Scott Bauer Jan. 23 2020 Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' plan to create a nonpartisan redistricting commission to draw Wisconsin's electoral maps may put pressure on the Republicans who control the Legislature to consider an alternative plan, but it won't force them to do anything differently next year and GOP leaders made clear they won't change course.

Wisconsin has been a consistent battleground in the fight for fair maps. The maps drawn in 2011 were notoriously gerrymandered. In fact, during the 2018 election, Republicans won 62% of congressional seats with only 46% of votes.

Governor Evers saw the injustice inherent in the state's maps and created a nonpartisan redistricting commission to give voters a strong voice in this process. But the existing leadership in the legislature -- who hold power because they gerrymandered the maps way back in 2011 -- committed to making sure the lines are drawn in their favor for another decade.

In 2021, we will be facing pushback from map manipulators across the country. Politicians who benefit from a broken status quo aren't going to give up power easily. That's why we're building our network of grassroots activists now who will hold elected officials accountable -- because in places like Wisconsin, the fight has already begun.

Chip in to help ensure AOTL volunteers have the resources they need to hold map manipulators accountable.

We’ll be blunt, Sula -- the Supreme Court’s ruling last June that federal courts can’t put limits on partisan gerrymandering was bad news. The Court’s conservatives -- including John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh -- effectively told Republicans to go ahead and keep gerrymandering.
Eric H. Holder, Jr.: The Supreme Court blew it. Period. Full stop. HELP US FIGHT BACK >>>
But even though the Supreme Court’s decision made our fight even tougher, we won’t give up. If we have to go state by state to secure fair maps, that’s exactly what we’ll do. Will you help?

Going state by state means:
  • We’ll need the resources to invest in all nine of our 2020 target states
  • We’ll need more folks on the ground in states like Texas and Florida, which have 63 U.S. House seats between them
  • We’ll need a massive grassroots movement to elect fair-map candidates at every level.
We can’t do this without you, Sula. Can we count on your donation to help us invest in state-level strategies to fight gerrymandering?
