I need your help. Prison gerrymandering gives extra political power to legislators who have prisons in their districts. We put numbers on the problem and sparked a movement to protect our democratic process from the overgrown prison system.

Can you help us continue the fight? Thank you.

The “No Representation Without Population Act” requires prisoner populations be counted in their home districts, not where they are incarcerated.
