Draw the Lines PA's spring mapping competition is gaining momentum. We're holding events all over the state to explain gerrymandering, show the fun side of fixing politics - and give you a look at our cool digital mapping tool.
The slideshow above shows you scenes from four recent events:
The same day we visited the West Chester campus, we alsoheld a lively Mapathon with residents of the Kendal retirement community in Kennett Square (where no photos were allowed).
We also accepted an invitation to trek up the Northeast Extension to Allentown on one recent night to talk about our mapping competition to volunteers from the Lehigh Valley chapter of Fair Districts PA.
We've got tons more public events, classroom visits and online mapping demos coming up in future weeks. Check out our Events page to see the ones nearest where you live.
If you'd like to partner with us on holding an event to help your organization or your neighbors learn more about how gerrymandering damages democracy and what you can do to fix it, we want to hear from you.
Use Help organize a DTL event to let us know what you have in mind.
Generally, DTL events come in three flavors (though we can mix and match the flavors, or even go full Neapolitan if you like):
Deadline for entering your map is May 31. Check out the competition rules before starting your map.
