Citizen Map Corps

The Citizen Map Corps will lead DTL’s statewide effort in 2021. Members will use events, media, essays, videos, and social posts to tell their stories about why they are fighting to Slay the Gerrymander. Interested in getting involved? Contact us at

This page features members of the Map Corps, plus other Citizen Stories from people who have been integral in growing this movement.
