CCFD has shared its technology and methods with the courts, attorneys working on redistricting cases, pro-democracy groups, academic experts and anyone involved in gerrymandering reform. We have met with lawmakers and members of their staff regarding legislative solutions to end gerrymandering. We have participated in public panels and forums, and have provided testimony in legislative settings -- particularly the PA Legislative Reapportionment Commission (LRC) for state legislative redistricting, and the PA House and Senate State Government Committees for congressional redistricting. CCFD has further provided testimony to the Governor’s listening tours and redistricting hearings.
In addition, CCFD has and will continue to submit amicus briefs on techniques to draw fair maps free of gerrymandering to the PA Supreme Court and to other courts as redistricting complaints work their way through the judicial system.
