Fair Maps Discussion with Draw the Lines Mappers

April 23, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Fair Districts PA for the first virtual Fair Maps Discussion featuring Draw the Lines award-winning mappers.

Champion mappers include:

  • Sara Stroman (Philadelphia), a two-time DTL honoree and 2019 Fall state runner-up
  • William Billingsley (Wilkes University), a three-time statewide winner and DTL’s 2019 Fall state champion for his PA House map
  • Sarah Buranskas (Pittsburgh), the 2019 Fall state champion in the adult division
  • Ryan Cedzo (Gannon University), the 2019 Fall higher ed state champion
  • Anne Hanna (Philadelphia), a three-time DTL honoree

They’ll share what they learned in drawing PA district maps:

  • the challenge of mapping non-contiguous municipalities
  • ways they balanced competing priorities
  • ideas about how to ensure best representation
  • features they’re proud of in their own mapss

The more we know about how maps are drawn, the more able we are to advocate for fair maps and real representation. The mappers will be showing maps and answering questions posed through the Zoom chat feature.

Registrants will recieve an email invite with the Zoom link before the event.
