Pennsylvania has some of the most unfair congressional districts in the country.

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.

Impartial

An independent citizens’ commission leads redistricting efforts

Transparent

Citizens participate in the process and “closed-door” deal-making ends

Accountable

Clear standards for equality, fairness, and integrity guide the process

Bipartisan bills have already been introduced to make this happen: PA Senate Bill 22 and PA House Bill 722. The bills are supported by a growing list of legislators from across the state.

We need you, now.

When citizens vote, fair districting wins—California and Arizona have already done it. But first, we need the PA legislature to step up. Thousands of your neighbors are already making calls and holding rallies. Join them.
