The Dauphin County Democratic Committee is hosting a public education Zoom program on reforming Pennsylvania’s redistricting process. Fair Districts PA speaker Jean Handley will explain PA’s current redistricting process, demonstrate how it undermines democracy, and then offer a solution to the problem.
Jean will also demonstrate how popular bipartisan legislation to end legislative gerrymandering has thus far been blocked by unfair procedural rules while a vote on partisan legislation to create judicial districts for our high courts is threatening to erode the independence of our judicial system
Finally, suggestions will be offered for how individuals and groups can advocate for change.
Fair Districts PA is a non-partisan coalition of citizens and organizations seeking to reform PA redistricting rules by ensuring that the process is impartial, transparent, and accountable.
