The Draw the Lines PA team joined professionals from all over Pennsylvania and beyond in discussing the inclusion of immigrants in politics, the economy, the arts, and more!

Our Western Regional Coordinator, Rachel Colker, joined a panel discussing the representation of Immigrants in Politics. She talked about the importance of equitable redistricting to minority voters and office seekers. The panel also explored how to collaborate with and include diverse communities in voting issues, as well as how to be an ally to often overlooked communities.

Keynote speakers Mila Sanina and Hamza Perez were among a number of speakers well known for their efforts in the field. Mila Sanina is the executive director of PublicSource, a nonprofit newsroom which drives social change in the Pittsburgh region. Hamza Perez is the founder of the YA-NE center, and was recognized as one of the top 500 most influential Muslims in the world in 2010 by the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Center.
