Help Arnold Schwarzenegger End Gerrymandering
Once a month ConSpot is going to spotlight an initiative that needs your money. Unlike organizations like the ACLU or Planned Parenthood, which are wonderful and need your money, too, these spotlights will focus on initiatives that are trying to do something specific in the resistance, where even small donations will go a long way.
If there’s one thing this Austrian Actor wants to terminate, its partisan gerrymandering. This month we’ve chosen a fundraising campaign by the former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, on the political fundraising platform CrowdPAC (which we also highly recommend).
Gerrymandering is the practice of drawing political districts in a way that gives one political party a distinct advantage over another, and it's been credited as one of the main reasons for the Republican Party’s dominance at local, state and national levels in recent years (see more on that here).
Ahhhnold is working with the nonprofit Common Cause to bring this issue before the Supreme Court. Your money will help pay for legal counsel, research, and all the other odds and ends vital to sustaining a high profile case like this.
Also, every dollar you give, he has pledged to match personally.
If we are able to get the Supreme Court to declare this practice unconstitutional, then it will go a long way towards helping to even out the electoral playing field in the elections to come.
