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? Any gift you make will be matched by other donors and will go twice as far. Thank you.

Media guides to redistricting

Two media guides to redistricting: the Brennan Center gives a general overview and ours focuses on counties and local governments with prison populations.

by Aleks Kajstura, March 29, 2011

In anticipation of upcoming redistricting efforts across the country, the Brennan Center recently published A Media Guide to Redistricting. It gives a great general overview of redistricting and gerrymandering of various kinds, and includes a short section on prison-based gerrymandering.

Our own Primer for reporters on redistricting
& prison-based gerrymandering
focuses on counties and other local governments that face redistricting with large prison populations.
