I just learned about a type of gerrymandering that blows my mind. A thread. (With real action at the end, I promise! Silver lining coming.)

#DougJones supporters: Turning out voters of color in #Alabama is key, so it’s important to give to the local orgs that are working on that. A thread. The last day to register to vote in #Alabama is 11/27; the special election is 12/12. Make this ask at your Thanksgiving table! If people who see this thread in their feed each gave $10, efforts would be funded.
