Gerrymandering efforts by state legislatures deprive voters of the opportunity to fully and fairly elect the representatives of their choice. As gerrymandering diminishes a voter’s influence, it also depresses the public’s faith in our electoral system.
The National Redistricting Foundation seeks to prevent and reverse invidious gerrymandering through legal action across the country. We seek to overturn unconstitutional district maps that entrench racial or partisan bias and to challenge actions that threaten to undermine the redistricting process.
Our mission is to dismantle unfair electoral maps and create a redistricting system based on democratic values in advance of the 2021 redistricting cycle. By helping to create more just and representative electoral districts across the country, we also hope to restore the public’s faith in a true representative democracy.
