WASHINGTON, DC— In response to news that the Republican justices on the Supreme Court have issued a shadow docket order reinstating a Louisiana congressional map after a lower court struck it down, Demand Justice Chief Counsel Christopher Kang issued the following statement:

“The Republican bloc on the Supreme Court is continuing to rig the rules of our democracy for Republicans and against voters of color. While Democrats should absolutely be mobilizing the public against unpopular rulings like the ones overturning Roe v. Wade and striking down a century-old gun violence prevention measure, this ruling is a reminder that ‘just vote’ cannot be the response to this out of control Court. Without structural reform to the Court, it will get progressively harder for Americans to make their voices heard at all.”
