Slay the gerrymander. Draw the Lines, PA.

 WHAT IS DRAW THE LINES pa?

We're a nonpartisan resource for Pennsylvanians who want to end gerrymandering and improve democracy. We tell their stories, provide ways to engage.  We offer the digital tools needed to draw a valid election map. Why? To prove that our state's people — whether 14, 44 or 84 — are ready, willing and able to take on this key work of democracy.  Our first mapping competition (total prize pool: $37,000) just wrapped up. A new one begins in January.  See story below.
