NDRC Partners with Organizing for Action (OFA)
The National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC) and Organizing for Action (OFA) launched a partnership to build a more fair democracy by strategically targeting legislative chambers, governorships, and ballot initiatives that will be critical in determining how maps are drawn after the 2020 Census.
With this new partnership, OFA and NDRC will join forces to reform the practice of allowing politicians to redraw our congressional and state legislative districts in ways that cater to political extremes and leave too many voters feeling as if they don’t have a voice. As former President Obama has said, “Politicians shouldn’t pick their voters; voters should pick their politicians.”
Alongside the National Redistricting Action Fund, NDRC’s affiliate, OFA will use its grassroots infrastructure to organize, educate, and engage supporters both in the digital space and on the ground to restore fair representation to Congress and state legislatures. In the coming months, OFA will be organizing house parties to educate people around redistricting issues and outline future plans for how this program will make an impact on a state-by-state basis.
