CCFD was honored to host Rep. Joanna McClinton (PA-191), House Democratic Leader, in the spring at a virtual conversation and Q&A on redistricting. Rep. McClinton, together with Justin Klos, Director of Demographics, shared their experiences with the Legislative Reapportionment Commission (LRC) and answered a variety of questions – with reflections on the mapping process and thoughts on redistricting going forward. Pennsylvanians should be proud of the work of the LRC.
