With Thanksgiving just a few days away, now is as good a time as any to say how grateful I am for friends like you.
Thanks to your generous support, the League of Women Voters has made major headway in fighting voter suppression efforts … calling out President Trump’s unnecessary ‘Election Integrity’ Commission … and registering thousands of voters from every region and demographic.
But with the holiday season now approaching, we can’t afford to lose the momentum we’ve generated. That’s why I hope you’ll help advance our reform efforts even further — and rededicate yourself to the cause of democracy — with a special gift today.
Your generous contribution will be especially critical as we gear up for the fight to stop partisan gerrymandering.
As you know, manipulation of the redistricting process to favor one party or candidate makes a mockery of a truly representative democracy. It suppresses political competition … silences the voices of entire communities … and aggravates the already appalling polarization in the legislative process.
Yet in state after state, this profoundly unconstitutional practice grows ever more entrenched.
That’s why, with your help, the League has been pushing for a redistricting process that reflects the full diversity of our nation’s communities.
We’re now utilizing our powerful grassroots network to push gerrymandering reform in some 36 states. From California to Ohio to Maryland to North Carolina to Pennsylvania, we’re working to put redistricting power back in the hands of ordinary citizens — and we’re winning!
Best of all, our efforts received an enormous boost when the Supreme Court heard arguments in a partisan gerrymandering case from Wisconsin.
I don’t need to tell you what an extraordinary opportunity this is. If the Court sets clear standards for how much partisanship is too much and creates a new standard for redistricting, it could literally transform our nation’s future.
That’s why we have to be ready — one way or another, we’re working to take politics out of redistricting — once and for all — and ensuring all votes count equally, no matter who you are or where you live.
And that’s why your support is so important.
By making a generous gift to the League today, you can help us galvanize support — state by state — for an electoral system that truly mirrors America. And you can help ensure that all of us have an equal voice — and an equal vote — in our nation’s future.
So please do your part to realize that vision by making a special donation to the League of Women Voters today.
With deep gratitude for your generosity,
Jessica Jones Capparell
Interim Senior Director of Advocacy
