The first half hour of our meeting will review some redistricting reform basics for new folks. We will explain:
• What the current redistricting process is (how voting districts are drawn for both congressional and state representation seats).
• Why PA is ranked as one of the worst states for partisan gerrymandering.
• How gerrymandering affects all of us — by affecting our choice at the polls, our ability to influence our lawmakers about issues we care about, and how it impacts the business community.
Then, we will provide updates on
• Fair Districts PA 2020 legislative strategy and timetable
• Updates from recent meetings with local legislators
• Fair Districts PA new advertising/awareness campaign
• How you can make a difference:3/23 Rally in Harrisburg, Election Day Outreach, local volunteering opportunities
