Draw the Lines PA

Date: 
Wednesday, November 13, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Want to win some major $$ while learning about a vital function of our democracy? Come learn about Draw the Lines PA, a free, nonpartisan program for PA voters and students around the issue of redistricting and gerrymandering. DTL gives Pennsylvanians the same digital tools that the political pros use to gerrymander districts, and lets them draw their own maps to learn about how the voting lines on a map can have a huge impact on the leaders we elect. Voters can then submit their map for prizes up to $5,000. Draw the Lines helps mappers share their maps with their elected representatives so they can be involved in how they want to see the lines drawn for real in 2021. During this program at the Indiana Free Library, participants will learn about the issue with several interactive activities, and then start drawing their own districts on DTL's free mapping platform. Want to learn more? Contact Justin Villere, jvillere@seventy.org. Sponsored by FDPA and IFL.
