Doing stuff that can really have an impact!!

Here's an e-mail I got from the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, established by Eric Holder and Barack Obama, now run by Holder. I really admire and support this kind of effort. People who are willing to spend time and effort on the least glamorous, but potentially game changing fights really demonstrate their commitment. THANKS NDRC.

I hope every DUer who reads this will donate a little bit to the cause. And please "reply" so this post stays visible. Recs won't do it.

****** The Email ************
As part of the NDRCís comprehensive strategy to end gerrymandering, weíre throwing our weight behind the races that will have the biggest impact on 2021 redistricting, and doing everything we can to win them.

Our next target is a judicial race in Wisconsin. On April 3, Wisconsinites will have an opportunity to elect an advocate for fair maps to the state Supreme Court. If theyíre successful, the people of Wisconsin will have one more voice for fairness, who can stand up to the partisan gerrymandering that has plagued the state for the past decade.

But -- if the NDRC is going to take part in elections like these, Iím going to need your help. Will you pitch in to our $45,000 mid-month goal to give us the resources to get involved in this race and many more?

1. Sorry, I can't really donate now.

I've retired so funds are limited but I definitely support Holder and Obama's efforts to end gerrymandering and am glad to kick this for visibility. If I get to the point where I'm not so pinched financially, I will donate as well.

3. This is so important...

 

And Iím a bit taken back at how quickly they are having an impact. Eric Holder and crew know the system inside and out.

Thanks LAS14. I really appreciate reading about them. Itís so easy to get distracted by negative news these days. This is a big bright spot.

6. K&R! This sounds like an excellent effort!

And with President Obama and Eric Holder behind it, DUers should be both interested and supportive.
