Obama just jumped back into politics with a campaign you won’t believe
After two years of being rather quiet, Barack Obama is now jumping back into the political arena.
With Donald Trump destroying his agenda piece by piece, he is furious.
So Obama just jumped back into politics with a campaign you won’t believe.
Once leaving office, former presidents generally stay quiet and allow their predecessor to do their job.
But Barack Obama doesn’t care about that.
And he announced that he is starting an initiative to influence redistricting efforts across the United States.
His initiative trains activists to influence the way political districts are drawn, because he believes this will “determine the course of progress on every issue” he cares about for decades.
Former President Barack Obama on Monday unveiled a new initiative to influence redistricting efforts across the United States.
The initiative, Redistricting U, will send activists to provide free training and tools to volunteers involved in redistricting efforts and guide groups on how to “be leaders in the movement for fair maps.”
“Training is at the heart of organizing. It’s why I’ve always made it a priority – from my 2008 campaign until now,” Obama wrote in a tweet announcing Redistricting U, which is part of the All On The Line campaign.
In February, Obama’s Organizing For Action and former Attorney General Eric Holder’s National Redistricting Action Fund joined forces to create the All On The Line campaign — aimed at thwarting the use of so-called gerrymandering across the country.
“The movement for fair maps will determine the course of progress on every issue we care about for the next decade,” Obama said. “And we can’t wait to begin organizing when the redistricting process starts in 2021. We need to build this movement from the ground up – right now.”
Obama knows his time serving in public office is over.
But he still wants to promote his radical agenda however he can.
And apparently the best way to do that is by drawing the maps that will help decide who can win in specific districts.
He is clearly trying to change safe Republican Districts into Democrat Districts.
