Support our gerrymandering work!

October 11th, 2017, 7:19am by Sam Wang

We are engaged in nonpartisan analysis to help understand the causes of partisan gerrymandering, and develop tools to fix it through court action and through citizen-led reform efforts in states. For example, our amicus brief in last week’s Supreme Court case may be useful to them as they write their decision – and, depending on that ruling, to lower courts as the decision is implemented.

To learn more about our analysis, which meets legal constraints set in place by the Court (and even addresses objections by conservatives such as Justice Samuel Alito), read our amicus brief or watch our great explainer video. For a deep dive into why partisan gerrymandering has soared, see our piece in The American Prospect.

If you are interested in supporting the project, there are two ways to contribute:

  • Visit our Benefunder page to learn about what we plan to do next, and to donate; or
  • Contact Princeton University Development officer Thomas Roddenbery, who can help you.
