Media Highlights

Redistricting reform is gaining ground. Just ask the media outlets from across Pennsylvania—and across the country—that have covered our efforts.

Hometown newspapers have printed over 130 letters to the editor supporting reform. In addition to writing over 340 news articles about redistricting and gerrymandering, 47 media outlets statewide, representing big cities and small towns and a full political spectrum, have run more than 210 editorials, op-eds and columns – virtually ALL of them calling for reform. Both Pennsylvania and national TV and radio broadcasters have covered our advocacy work.

Below is a sampling of news coverage. Check out the Fair Districts PA FlipBoard for more articles.
