We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us. Check out the Facebook page for this event here.

 

Let's End Gerrymandering

Wednesday, January 25, 7 pm
Where: Arch Street United Methodist Church
55 N. Broad St., Philadelphia, PA

As things stand in Pennsylvania, voters don't pick their politicians. Politicians pick their voters. Districts are designed by party leaders to reelect legislators who support them and eliminate those who do not.

Carol Kuniholm of Fair Districts PA will speak about redistricting, how gerrymandering undermines democracy and what you can do to help. Learn about Fair District PA's plan to reform redistricting in Pennsylvania and how recent Federal court decisions and changes in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court may give Pennsylvanians the opportunity to take back control of our electoral process. There will be time afterward for Q & A and organizing as a regional group. Here's the Facebook page for the event.
