Democracy Defenders

Building on our effective model that changed the game on redistricting, we are applying our success in previous election cycles to now shine a spotlight on the state and local races most important for protecting our democracy. While the NDRC has long played in state-level elections critical for redistricting, this is the first time our electoral program extends beyond just candidates who are involved in redistricting—we’re expanding our program to include targets to protect democracy overall.

Just as we will continue to lift up offices critical in the fight for fair maps, the NDRC’s Democracy Defenders will serve as key firewalls against Republican anti-democracy agendas in the states. Without further ado, we are proud to introduce our initial 2022 Democracy Defenders:
