The GOP-led Texas state senate just released a draft congressional map, and the gerrymandering we’ve been warning about is brazen. Republicans have made it clear that they don’t care about a fair electoral process - they only care about retaining power. #txlege

Right now, state legislatures across the country are setting new boundaries for state legislative and congressional districts. And in many states, Republicans are drawing maps that allow them to hold onto power.

In Texas, for example, Republicans recently passed a law making voting harder, especially for people of color. Now they’re advancing a new congressional map that’s tilted in their favor and doesn’t reflect the state’s growth. twitter.com/DemRedistrict/…

And in Georgia, Republicans released a congressional map that decreases the voting power of communities of color – including African Americans in a historically Black district – and ignores how the state has changed.

If we don’t stand up for democracy, we’ll see this type of gerrymandering happen in even more states. It’s why @DemRedistrict is fighting for #FairMaps. And it’s why the Senate must pass the Freedom to Vote Act to protect our communities from partisan gerrymandering.

@BarackObama @DemRedistrict You are the best president that came across sir 💯💯

@BarackObama @DemRedistrict End the filibuster and it could happen. Hammer on that, sir

@BarackObama @DemRedistrict Please tell us what to do. It’s frustrating and terrifying to watch this happen

@hippie_chick924 @BarackObama @DemRedistrict yeah. the concept of the filibuster is making me have stomach aches.

@BarackObama @DemRedistrict We need a Stacey Abrams in every State! It’s the only way! If she trains me I am willing to put in the work!!!!

@PattyOFlaherty @BarackObama @DemRedistrict Precisely so. We don't have time for playing bipartisanship with a party that no longer exists to serve anyone but #45 and the 1%,
