With help from our grassroots partners, we organized a statewide redistricting program. Our program prioritizes public education, outreach, and organizing across Alabama to advocate for fair and equal representation for all Alabamians.
Improving the fairness of our redistricting process is the foundation by which we create more balanced, equitable representation. A more reflective representative body ensures all Alabamian’s voices have the opportunity to be heard and contribute to determining Alabama’s policies and priorities.
Gerrymandering is one of elected officials’ most effective tools in silencing our voice. Gerrymandering is the intentional manipulation of the map-drawing process by elected officials to keep or change the direction of political power.
When maps are drawn to benefit elected officials, many communities lose critical resources such as funding for schools, healthcare, and public safety initiatives.
Join us by contacting your legislator to demand they prioritize everyday Alabamians instead of elected officials in the map drawing process. We made it easy, send your letter in just a few clicks!
Public testimony is critical to the redistricting process as the legislature will take public input into consideration when drawing the lines. Use your voice and submit public comments to Alabama’s Reapportionment Committee today!
Our organization has drafted a sample letter you can print to mail to your legislator(s) of choice. When you download it, make sure to fill out the necessary information to get the best chance of response.
Once you download the letter and print it, find your legislator(s) and mail your letter!

Our tools page has access to several great resources to aid and assist Alabamians who are interested in learning more or becoming involved in the community line-drawing process, including map drawing software, informative videos, information on trainings, and more
