The Supreme Court just handed down a disastrous decision on partisan gerrymandering.

Fortunately, we have a plan to unrig American elections that doesn't rely on the Supreme Court: passing powerful anti-gerrymandering laws state by state. And we have an opportunity to stop gerrymandering right now in Virginia.

This Thursday, July 11th, join our national phone bank to pressure the Virginia General Assembly to advance the proposed state constitutional amendment. In 2018 alone, our movement passed landmark anti-gerrymandering laws in Missouri, Michigan, Ohio, Utah, and Colorado.

Virginia could be the next state to pass an anti-gerrymandering law. Last February, the General Assembly passed the "first read" of an amendment that would establish the first ever Virginia Redistricting Commission - now they need to pass it again in order for it to reach the ballot in 2020.

RSVP on this page to join our phone bank to notify voters all over the nation to connect them with their state officials. We'll train you on how phone banking will work and connect you with other individuals who are calling to keep you motivated and having fun. The textbank starts at 5pm ET / 2pm PT, but you have complete flexibility for when you want to jump on.
