Event Description

West Chester University is hosting a “double header” of public education programming on reforming Pennsylvania’s redistricting process. Fair Districts PA chair Carol Kuniholm will be speaking to two groups of advanced policy students in the school’s social work program and the public is invited to attend. The first session will begin at 2:00 and will be repeated beginning at 3:00. Carol will explain PA’s current redistricting process, demonstrate how it undermines democracy, and then offer a solution to the problem. Carol will also discuss the legislation in Harrisburg and FDPA’s strategy going forward.

Fair Districts PA is a non-partisan coalition of citizens and organizations seeking to reform PA redistricting rules by taking the process out of the hands of party leaders and putting that process into the hands of an impartial, transparent, and accountable independent citizens commission.
