What we're doing...


In America, elections are supposed to reflect the will of the people, not politicians. We all want our voices to be heard in determining the future of our families and communities. We are fighting for a census in which every person is counted and a process for drawing district boundaries that puts our communities, and not the needs of politicians, first.

Gerrymandering & Representation Campaigns...

Mass Incarceration

The mass criminalization and incarceration of black and brown communities disenfranchises and disempowers millions of Americans and undermines the promise of a democracy that works for everyone.

Gerrymandering / Redistricting

Politicians shouldn’t be allowed to draw voting maps that benefit themselves. We need to change the rules and create a fair system so that voters are choosing the politicians, instead of politicians choosing their voters.

Reflective Democracy

We're building a democracy that works for everyone because it reflects who we are and how we live in the 21st Century.

Census

The U.S. Census is a vital component of our system of representative government. An accurate census apportions power fairly and helps ensure that government agencies base their decisions on data and facts.
