State Legislatures Are KEY


State legislatures not only create the laws that affect the everyday lives of their constituents, they also play a critical role in determining the districts for the U.S. House of Representatives and thus the fate of the entire country. As new districts come into play after the 2020 census, it will be critical to maintain and extend our Democratic gains in the face of overwhelming Republican gerrymandering and voter suppression. Local Majority provides research that is practical and accessible to support Democratic campaigns for state legislature. Support our efforts or volunteer with us!


Good Things Happen When Democrats Win!


Case study:  Virginia 2019

Democrats win Trifecta in State Government: Governor, House of Delegates, and State Senate

In two years, Democrats have passed:

      • Voting rights bills to make access to voting easier and prevent discrimination.
      • Climate change bills to eliminate coal-burning plants, expand renewables and electric vehicles, and create jobs in clean energy.
      • Worker protection bills to increase the minimum wage and protect workers from underpayment.
      • Equal Rights Amendment to guarantee equal legal rights regardless of sex, becoming the 38th and final state needed for ratification to amend the US Constitution.
      • Education bills to increase funding to schools and teachers and make community college free for low- and middle-income students.
      • Gun protection bills with mandatory background checks, red flag law removing weapons from people deemed a threat, and limits on the quantities of guns buyable each month.
      • Criminal justice reform, abolishing the death penalty, legalizing marijuana, and reforming the police.
      • Civil rights bills to repeal 100 outdated, discriminatory bills including the ban on gay marriage.

Let’s make sure that Democrats stay in control next year for more needed reforms.
