Slay the Gerrymander: Bar games to fix democracy
Voting is the most fundamental act in American democracy. Unfortunately, through an act called gerrymandering, politicians have become extremely good at handpicking their voters, instead of voters picking their politicians.
Pennsylvanians are beginning to notice this problem. The Committee of Seventy is partnering with Fair Districts PA, one of the state’s fastest growing grassroots organizations, to showcase a new digital competition that will help you make your voice heard and demand reform on an issue critical to the functioning of our government.
