It is not hyperbole to state that America is under siege. Yes, the 2020 election ousted Donald Trump after a 4-year reign of racist policies, the undermining of institutions and bungling of a global pandemic. And the brilliant organizing of Stacey Abrams and LaTosha Brown produced the historic ascension of Rafael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to the Senate, flipping Georgia from red to blue. The fear of losing power is motivating Republican governors to weaken the voting rights of their own electorate, specifically Black voters. These blatant efforts to disenfranchise people of color are a clear and present danger to democracy. That brings us to EveryDistrict, founded by Nicole Hobbs to cultivate power from the ground up by electing the best candidates from the most competitive districts in their states. It provides the data, fundraising support and messaging expertise state legislative candidates need to reach and engage voters. EveryDistrict is building the playbook for the political organizing that we need now. Nicole’s tells the story, and her 2040 Report backs it up. Power building starts here.
