We produced our map. Legislators... where's yours?

The PA Citizens' Map represents what thousands of Pennsylvanians have created for Draw the Lines. It's a good starting point for the General Assembly as they draw PA's congressional districts. They need to hurry up; the map must be done by Jan. 24th. We call on them to give the public ample time to review a draft map. So legislators... where's your map?

Slay the gerrymander. Draw the Lines, PA.


We're a nonpartisan resource for Pennsylvanians who want to end gerrymandering. We provide teaching resources, digital tools and data so they can draw their own election maps. Why? To prove that the people of PA are done with gerrymandering and are ready, willing and able to do the core task of democracy themselves.  Watch our story on YouTube.   Questions?

Amanda Holt's Story

In 2010, she was a 29-year-old piano teacher living near Allentown. Then she noticed something … off in how her home state ran elections. She got curious. Then she got mad. And Pennsylvania politics was in for an earthquake.
