An amendment would stop gerrymandering in Virginia – and your help is crucial to passing it. 

Represent Virginia will meet with politicians in person to demand action in a Citizen Lobby Day. RSVP here to join the lobby day and show politicians that the people demand action.

Right now, politicians in Virginia pick their voters instead of the other way around. Virginia is one of the worst-gerrymandered states in America, allowing self-serving politicians to ensure their re-election by making safe districts that were drawn or influenced by political appointees and insiders. 

This is our last opportunity to stop gerrymandering before voting districts are redrawn in 2021. If we don't win now, we'll have to wait another 10 years to fix Virginia's corrupt status quo.

We have to come together to hold our legislators accountable and urge them to end gerrymandering. 

We will meet in the morning across the street at the Suntrust Building for a briefing and some lobbying tips, and then groups will go inside together to visit their legislators.

RSVP here to join us in Richmond and help end gerrymandering in Virginia.
