dSHARP Gerrymandering Series Event with Draw the Lines PA

What choices go into making a gerrymandered map? Do you think you could make better choices and a better map? Do you want to learn how?

 

dSHARP is excited to bring Rachel Colker from Draw the Lines PA to discuss gerrymandering, its effects, as well as show us how to build our own district maps!

 

Whether you’re a map geek or have never worked with mapping software before, this will be a great opportunity for you to grow your skills, learn, and make a difference.

 

This workshop will be held in the Sorrels Library Den (Wean Hall, 4th Floor). 

 

Rachel Colker is the Western PA Coordinator at Draw the Lines PA, a statewide civic education and engagement initiative for Pennsylvanians to draw election maps. Its goal is to help Pennsylvanians of all ages learn about and connect with the issue of political redistricting and gerrymandering.
