Event Description:
Redistricting Reform is needed now, before the next census in 2020. Learn more about the problem. Learn about the solution. Become a part of the solution.
Pennsylvania is one of the most gerrymandered states in the U.S. Behind closed doors, incumbent lawmakers draw the borders of voting districts, picking their voting majorities. As a result, many elections are no longer competitive, voters feel that the issues that matter are not addressed, and the partisan gridlock in Harrisburg and Washington gets worse. Politicians, as well as voters, are pawns in a partisan duopoly.

A representative of Fair Districts PA will explain the why and the how of the current process of Congressional and PA legislative redistricting, as well as the proposed solution to take the process out of the direct hands of sitting politicians, turning it over to an independent commission.

air Districts PA has formed local efforts across the state. Become part of the groundswell demanding change. Get an update on the Fair Districts PA statewide effort. Find out how you can support the statewide effort for redistricting reform, both in your individual capacity or through a local group effort.
