Join our movement to create fair maps and true representation for black and brown communities

Restore power to the people, not politicians or parties

It’s time for nonpartisan maps

America is projected to be a majority-minority nation by 2045, but you would never know that if you looked at our legislative maps. Politicians in both parties have systematically carved up communities in a process known as gerrymandering which has enabled them to pick their constituents instead of the other way around. This keeps ineffective leaders in power while also silencing the voices of under-represented people, especially those from black and brown communities.  

The time for change is now! 

We are on a mission to end political gridlock and restore political power to the people by creating fair, nonpartisan maps.
