Ben Affleck and Hillary Clinton Among Speakers For Online Fundraiser To End Gerrymandering

By Steve McLean 11/25/21 |

Two groups fighting to end gerrymandering and defend voting rights across the United States will be the beneficiaries of a live virtual conversation on the topic, featuring former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, former attorney general Eric Holder, two-time Academy Award-winning actor Ben Affleck and Golden Globe-winning actress Tracee Ellis Ross.

Standard tickets for the event, taking place at 6 p.m. ET on Dec. 7, start at $25 (all prices U.S.) and also go for $50 and $100. Signed thank you notes from Clinton and Holder accompany $250 and $500 tickets. A virtual VIP reception with the four panelists is included with $1,000 and $2,500 tickets, and a virtual meet and greet with them comes with $5,000 tickets. Tickets can be purchased here.

Money raised through ticket sales will be split between two groups fighting for fair electoral maps and elections: All On The Line and Onward Together.

All On The Line is a national campaign driven by grassroots organizers with a mission to end gerrymandering because of its contributions to the polarization and dysfunction of the American political system. Its goal is to end electoral map manipulation and have fair electoral districts.

All On The Line is targeting gerrymandering activities in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin.

Onward Together was established in April 2017 to lend support to leaders — particularly young leaders — to kick off projects and found new organizations to fight for progressive values. It has granted more than $4 million to partner organizations and other progressive groups.

Onward Together is particularly interested in working with groups that: present a well-articulated vision; have a demonstrated ability to attract supporters, volunteers and donors; and have a willingness to collaborate with like-minded groups.

Onward Together’s partner network includes Color of Change, Emerge America, Indivisible, Swing Left, Run for Something, Alliance for Youth Action, Arena, The Collective Political Action Committee, iVote, Latino Victory, Voto Latino, Demand Justice, National Domestic Workers Alliance, Living United for Change in Arizona and Texas Civil Rights Project.
