Interest of Amici Curiae

Amici curiae are organizations that support a fair redistricting process, advocate on behalf of communities of color during redistricting, litigate racial, partisan, and prison-based gerrymandering cases, and work within Missouri’s communities of color to protect the right to vote and ensure everyone can have their voices heard. Amici strongly believe that free and fair elections—and by extension, fair districting plans—are the bedrock of our democracy. They have a significant interest in this case, given their longstanding concern and advocacy against the growth of extreme partisan control over redistricting—a pernicious tactic that deeply offends the constitutional principles that form the foundation of republican governments.
