Event Description

Politicians have become extremely good at gerrymandering to pick their own voters. So the Committee of Seventy is partnering with Fair Districts PA to showcase a new digital competition that will help you reclaim our democracy.

Join us for a happy hour and FREE FOOD with interactive bar games that bring hilarity and competition to a serious topic. Compete in the online hit “The Redistricting Game.” Try your hand at government quizzo. Try to put PA’s congressional district map together yourself. Plus many more. We’ll have prizes and a raffle, plus drink specials for our 21+ guests. Get out your tools - we’re going to map a fix to the bug in the operating system of democracy!
