Introducing the Citizen Map Corps

This group of talented citizen mappers will spearhead DTL's efforts to inform PA voters about election mapping in the critical months to come.

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? Please contact us.

Citizen Stories
