Event Description

Join Us in Harrisburg April 16 to say “Redistricting reform is past due.”

Come to the Capitol to let our legislators know we’re still working on redistricting reform and we’re not planning to wait another decade for an independent citizens commission for both congressional and legislative redistricting. We want support for HB 22 and 23 and we want changes to procedural rules that allow just a few leaders to block important reforms.

We’ll hold a press conference and rally at noon, then distribute issue packets to representatives’ offices. You can also see the House or Senate in session. If you’ve never done it,, plan to take a half-hour guided tour of the Capitol (offered every half hour from 8:30 AM. to 4:00 PM). It’s an amazing building.

Let us know you’re coming so we can help you prepare and share schedule details closer to the date.

If you’d like go ahead and schedule an in person meeting with your Representative. Please be sure to avoid the noon hour so we can have as many as possible at the press conference. We will provide a legislator packet for you to deliver.

Register today so we know who is attending!
