The CCRA Board of Directors has endorsed the Fair Districts PA movement, which is a nonpartisan, citizen-led group working to fight gerrymandering. Redistricting will happen after the 2020 Census, so time is of the essence. Fair Districts PA wants to make the redistricting process impartial, transparent and accountable, by creating an independent citizens’ panel to lead the redistricting effort in an open door process, with clear standards.
To do that, Fair Districts PA is holding information and mobilization sessions.
The next event is October 3rd from 5:30 to 8:30 PM at the Pyramid Club, 1735 Market St, Philadelphia. The featured guest will be Katherine Gehl, former CEO of Gehl Foods and a strong supporter of redistricting reform in her own state of Wisconsin. This is a ticketed event: Tickets - Why Competition in the Politics Industry is Failing America.
Then, on October 6th is Justice and Gerrymandering: Why Redistricting Reform Matters, at the Unitarian Society of Germantown, 6511 Lincoln Drive, Philadelphia. The event is from 9am to noon, and will focus on an overview of gerrymandering and the need for reform.
