Received this e-mail today from former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on behalf of his organization, All On The Line:
The 2021 redistricting process will be the first-ever with a nationwide grassroots movement to hold map manipulators accountable.
But the truth is, our movement is fighting a battle that elected officials in Washington should have prevented a long time ago. Thankfully, 2021 is a chance to finally fix what's broken. In January, Congress could finally pass comprehensive legislation on fair redistricting and voting rights — Georgia's runoff election will determine if that's possible.
That's why I'm asking you to make a donation to our Democracy Reform Fund. Every dollar we raise will be split between All On The Line and the Democratic Party of Georgia — your contribution will help GOTV efforts in Georgia and advocacy efforts once the 117th Congress is in session.
To be frank: we shouldn't need a grassroots movement to achieve fair maps. There should already be comprehensive laws on the books to prevent partisan politicians from exploiting redistricting for their own political gain.
If pro-democracy senators — who support redistricting reforms like the For the People Act (H.R. 1) and voting rights protections like the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (VRAA) — hold a majority in the next Congress, we may not need to play defense to protect our democracy anymore.
We saw so many examples of poor governance in 2020, particularly in regards to our elections. Democracy reforms like H.R. 1 and the VRAA can bring integrity to our political system.
It's one reason we're so invested in the runoff races. Georgia has become ground zero for voter suppression in the past few years. As my friend Reverend Warnock has said, “voting rights are on the ballot.” We might not all be able to cast votes in this runoff election — but we can help make sure organizers and supporters on the ground in Georgia have the resources they need to get out the vote.
Will you make a donation today to help invest in All On The Line's vision for a more fair democracy? Your donation will be split with the Democratic Party of Georgia to support its get-out-the-vote efforts and bring us one step closer to passing legislation that makes our democracy work for the people.
Together, we're going to restore faith in our democracy and give power back to the people.
Let's bring it home,
Eric H. Holder, Jr.

I also received this e-mail today from Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris:
Only 16 days stand between us and our chance to win the two Georgia runoffs that can flip control of the Senate majority — so I’m asking for your help today.
Tomorrow, I’ll be traveling to Georgia to help Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff get out the vote, but in the meantime, I want to make sure they have every resource they need to make their case directly to the voters.
Thanks to your support in the presidential election, we turned Georgia blue for the first time in decades — and with your help today, I know we can keep Georgia blue come January 5.
With Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in the U.S. Senate, we can quickly get to work enacting the bold, progressive change that over 81 million Americans voted for in this year’s election.
That’s why your support today is critical, and it’s why I have to ask you one more time for your help to win these runoffs and give Joe and me a Senate majority we can work with.
So if you’re able to contribute $112, $224, or more today to our Flip Georgia Fund, will you please do so right away? Any amount you give will make a real difference in helping Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff win these races.
Thanks for everything you do,
