What do Democrats need to win more legislative power throughout the country? To put a stop to extreme gerrymandering? To pass the Equal Rights Amendment, a constitutional amendment guaranteeing equal rights to all Americans regardless of gender? To pass stricter gun control laws?
According to Nicole Hobbs, Executive Director of Every District, an organization dedicated to helping Democrats win more power at the state level, Democrats need to win more state legislative races to move the country in a more progressive direction; and they especially need to win states races in order to create fairer district electoral maps.
In our conversation, Nicole Hobbs discusses why Democrats won some state legislative seats in 2018 and lost others; she also explains what we need to do to win key states in 2019 and 2020.
