Holder to Attend Events in Madison and Milwaukee on Thursday and Friday Ahead of State Supreme Court Election

Washington, D.C. — On March 14 and 15, Eric H. Holder, Jr., the 82nd Attorney General of the United States and Chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), will be attending events in Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The events will be focused on the importance of a fair redistricting process in Wisconsin, voting rights, and getting African-Americans and young people engaged ahead of critical elections this year, including voting for Judge Lisa Neubauer on April 2 in the race for state Supreme Court. There will be four events open to the press on the trip.

The National Redistricting Action Fund (NRAF), the 501c4 affiliate of NDRC, is investing $350,000 in Together Wisconsin Acts and BLOC (Black Leaders Organizing Communities) to support advertising and organizing for Judge Lisa Neubauer’s campaign for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
