Project on Fair Representation is a legal defense fund founded and led by Ed Blum with an agenda "dedicated to reversing race-based legal protections".[1] The Project is financially supported by Donors Trust. [2]

The Project on Fair Representation funded the challenges in Supreme Court cases Shelby County v. Holder and Fisher v. University of Texas with funds from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation funneled through Donors Trust. Both challenges were organized by Ed Blum. In Shelby County v. Holder the Court's ruling severely limited the Voting Rights Act and Fisher v. University of Texas, which attacked university affirmative admissions programs, was differed to a lower court.[1]
