All on the Line is fighting hyper partisan gerrymandering in Texas on three fronts—in the courts, in the Texas Legislature, and through civic engagement. We are the third part, the people power!
This month, Baffour Tontoh will tell us how we can help map our community, and use our voices to testify for fair districts. Gerrymandering is silencing communities. If our votes didn’t matter, Republicans wouldn’t try so hard to suppress them.
Candidates running for office are encouraged to attend and introduce themselves and their priorities.
It’s been a very long time. We can’t wait to see your lovely faces! (Yay, vaccines and Democratic administrations!)
