Event Description

The Quakertown Business and Professional Women are hosting a public education program on reforming Pennsylvania’s redistricting process. Fair Districts PA speakers Mary Erdman and Dennis Landon will explain PA’s current redistricting process, demonstrate how it undermines democracy, and then offer a solution to the problem. The speakers 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.
