I need your help. Prison gerrymandering gives extra political power to legislators who have prisons in their districts. We put numbers on the problem and sparked a movement to protect our democratic process from the overgrown prison system.

Can you help us continue the fight? All gifts made this year will be automatically matched by other donors. Thank you.

Prison-based gerrymandering at Seattle Film Festival, YouTube

by Peter Wagner, May 11, 2010

A clip about prison-based gerrymandering from the new documentary Gerrymandering is now available on YouTube.

The film’s next public screening will be at the Seattle Film Festival on May 30 and 31:

Sun (5/30) 6:45 pm
Mon (5/31) 11 am
Harvard Exit, 807 E Roy St.
Stay tuned for more screenings of the film in your area.

Seattle’s alternative newsweekly, The Stranger, reviews the film:

"Surprise! A film about gerrymandering is actually one of the most fascinating political documentaries to spring up since Bush left office. Timely and compelling, Gerrymandering clearly explains the history and importance of redistricting and why it shouldn’t be left to elected officials…. Every American voter should see this film before 2011."
