Event description

Description

Join Repair the World and Fair Districts PA for an explanation of the history of gerrymandering, what's currently happening in Pennsylvania, and how to change the process before the next census. Free drinks and appetizers followed by a short presentation by Fair Districts PA. There will be postcards available to send to your legislators.
...
Gerrymandered district lines weaken the power of our votes—and politicians are working behind closed doors to keep it that way. We all pay the price.
- Incumbents draw lines that protect their seats
- Politicians feel safe—so they ignore issues you care about
- Gridlock worsens in Harrisburg and Washington
- People feel powerless and voter turnout goes down

We can change this.
Redistricting will happen after the 2020 Census—but it will only be fair if we change the state constitution first. Fair Districts PA is a nonpartisan, citizen-led group working to do just that.
