Emergency Legal Fund: We're suing to STOP Trump's Census attack

We’re confident Trump’s latest move won’t survive our legal challenge, but this fight is bigger than that. That’s because trying to manipulate census data is just the latest in his all-out war against the idea of equal representation.

We won’t let it happen. And we’re prepared to go to court to make sure of that. This legal fight is absolutely necessary to stop the efforts to rig the census and redistricting — but taking it on will place an additional strain on our limited resources.

We can strike a MAJOR legal blow against this cynical effort right here and right now — if you’re with us, can I count on your contribution to our Emergency Legal Fund today?

Together, we have:
