Tell Your Rep To Back Redistricting Bills

The bill filing deadline for the Texas Legislative Session was last week and just in time, the bills that Fair Maps Texas worked so hard to champion got filed!

Ending gerrymandering has to be EVERYONE'S fight. For democracy to thrive, every voice and vote should be heard and counted. Take a look at a great video that Campaign Legal Center put out last week highlighting the troubles in North Carolina. It relates to problems that gerrymandered regions nationwide face in the fight for fair maps.

So today we're sharing this action alert from Fair Maps Texas so that we can immediately set to work on next steps. From Fair Maps Texas:
