Forum on Redistricting in Pennsylvania

On Thursday, January 29th, 2009, over 150 concerned citizens joined the Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter of Americans for Democratic Action for a forum addressing the issue of legislative redistricting in Pennsylvania. Those is attendance listened to Rep. Babette Josephs, Rep. Josh Shapiro, Councilwoman Maria Quiñones-Sánchez and WHYY's Chris Satullo present their thoughts regarding how voters may advocate for a redistricting process that will reduce gerrymandering and open elective office to new officials committed to political reform. Based upon the interest demonstrated by those in attendance, work in Harrisburg has already begun to address this very important issue.
