Diane,

The AOTL Finance team has been tracking our fundraising progress and here's their message to us: our plans to achieve fair maps will be harder to accomplish if we don't see an uptick in grassroots donations in the next few days.

President Obama has been reaching out to All On The Line supporters all year to let you all know how much we rely on folks like you to achieve fair maps.

Securing fair maps won't be easy -- it's going to take hard work every step of the way... We're leaning on the generosity of grassroots donors. I hope I can count on your support. -- President Obama

Can we count on you to make a donation right now to support our grassroots advocacy campaign to pass this bill?

 

Thanks for stepping up,
The AOTL Team

"The march for our fundamental rights is not yet over"

Call your senators and tell them why you believe they should pass the For the People Act.
‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌ ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌   ‌

Call your senators »

We have the chance to strengthen our democracy and make our political system more fair.

Nearly fifty-six years after peaceful protestors marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge to help pass the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and were beaten by police, President Obama said that, "This year's anniversary of 'Bloody Sunday' should serve as a reminder that the march for our fundamental rights is not yet over. There are more steps to take and more bridges to cross."

You can help our country take those next steps by calling your senators and telling them why you believe they should pass the For the People Act. We'll connect you directly with your senators by phone and give you some talking points to get started.

In tandem with our state-by-state strategy to achieve fair maps, we've launched a grassroots advocacy campaign to pass the For the People Act -- and you're instrumental to the success of our plan.

We need you to do your part to help pass this bill. I'm asking you to call your senators to tell them why we must pass this powerful piece of legislation.

Thanks for all you do,
Brianna

---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: President Obama
Subject: 56 years after "Bloody Sunday"
Date: Monday, March 29, 2021

Friend,

Threats to the right to vote still persist more than 56 years after "Bloody Sunday" -- the day when civil rights heroes, like my friend John Lewis, were beaten by police on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma. These young and brave activists were peacefully marching for voting rights -- and though the courage of all those who marched that day helped pave the way for the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the struggle still continues.

This year's anniversary of "Bloody Sunday" should serve as a reminder that the march for our fundamental rights is not yet over. There are more steps to take and more bridges to cross.

The All On The Line team has a plan to secure voting rights. It starts with helping folks like you ask Congress to pass the For the People Act. Can I count on you to make a donation to support their pursuit of making our democracy work for everyone?

Within the past decade, there have been new -- yet familiar -- threats to the fundamental tenets of our democracy. And over the last year, attacks on the right to vote have only escalated. More than 250 voter suppression bills have been introduced in 43 states, including Georgia -- a state where Black, Asian, and young voters turned out in droves in recent elections.

We know these undemocratic attempts to codify voter suppression are no accident -- they are deliberate attempts to undermine our democracy. But we can continue the work of the generations that came before us to secure the right to vote for every American. There is a clear path forward. We just have to be brave enough to go down that road.

I believe the single-most powerful word in our democracy is "we." We the People. We shall overcome. Yes we can. And what a glorious task we are given to continually try and improve our great nation.

That's what the For The People Act will do. It will help improve this nation. So here's what I'm asking: Will you make a donation to All On The Line? They are working to make sure the Senate hears from their constituents before the For the People Act is voted on. This sort of advocacy work is essential to the path of protecting and expanding the right to vote.

 
I believe that loving this country requires more than singing its praises or avoiding uncomfortable truths. It requires the occasional disruption and the willingness to speak out for what is right.

It's time to make our voices heard,
Barack Obama

Diane -- When the Supreme Court ruled in 2019 that federal courts could not place limits on partisan gerrymandering, Justice Elena Kagan had a STRONG response:

She continued, "Part of the Court's role in [our] system is to defend its foundations. None is more important than free and fair elections."

As we write this, free and fair elections are under threat once again. A new analysis has found that HALF of states are at extreme risk of gerrymandering. And GOP legislators across the country have introduced 361 bills to restrict voting rights.

The times are calling on us to act -- and so are leaders like President Obama and Attorney General Holder. What happens next depends on how many people answer that call.

Will you pitch in today to help us fight for free and fair elections?

Thank you,
Team NDRC




   
A.G. Holder: If the NDRC is successful in undoing manipulated maps, we will be able to achieve a system in which everyone's vote counts.

Since 2017, the NDRC has executed a comprehensive redistricting strategy that shifts the redistricting power, creating fair districts where Democrats can compete. Our victories have been made possible by our strong community of grassroots supporters.

Diane -- I'm reaching out to remind you we have a chance to bring the promise of America closer to a reality for so many.

Our country was founded on the idea of giving everyone in this country a fair chance to make their voice heard. Now, though, we're facing a barrage of attempts to undermine fair representation. Lawmakers are constructing structural barriers to prevent participation in our democracy. These types of voter suppression measures and map manipulations aren't new, but they are especially menacing.

I'm honored to be a part of this team because we're fighting to help America live up to its promise by achieving fair maps and protecting the right to vote. Right now, our grassroots team is working to convince the Senate to pass the For the People Act because strong federal legislation is one key avenue that can help safeguard our democracy and make sure everyone's voices are valued.

Will you take a moment and click here to call your senators? They need to know that constituents in your state support the democracy reforms in this bill.

CALL YOUR SENATOR NOW

As President Obama said: "Despite the challenges we face in rebuilding our democracy, there is hope -- and a clear path forward." He's right.

For the first time since the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, we have a real chance of passing expansive democracy reform. We can mitigate the damage of the 361 anti-voter bills being proposed by conservatives all across the country.

Use our online tool to call your senators and tell them to support the For the People Act. It'll connect you directly to your senators and makes the process easy.

Together, we're going to return our government to the people and build a country that works for everyone.
