The Legacy Foundation has learned that Maryland's enacted Congressional Redistricting Plan hurts African American voters and violates their constitutional rights. As a result, and in response, the Legacy Foundation is working with a group of African-American voters to prepare a lawsuit to challenge the actions of the State of Maryland. However, to make this happen, the Legacy Foundation needs to raise some significant resources.

"Redistricting is more than the the process by which population information is captured within census data that is then used to redraw the lines and boundaries of electoral districts within a state. Redistricting is the bridge between individual liberty and representative government. In a democracy, governments are only legitimate when districts are drawn to represent communities of interest. The operative words are "compact and contiguous districts." The State of Maryland has egregiously ignored the concept of compact and contiguous districts in drawing their congressional plan, instead they chose to violate the most president of federal laws such as "Equal Protection derived by the U.S. Constitution, The Voting Rights Act of 1965 and One-Person-One-Vote. As an African American Female living in the State of Maryland who believes in Voter Protection, I am appalled by these actions and believe it to be my right to oppose such injustices of gerrymandering for political purposes by supporting this law suit on behalf of African Americans and our Ancestors. An injustice done to one is an injustice done to all no matter who the perpetrator, Democratic Majorities or Republican Majorities... It is Still an Injustice."
