Tame the Gerrymander is rallying in support of the fight against partisan gerrymandering in the 6th Congressional district of Maryland (Benisek v. Lamone) AND BEYOND!
We will be joined by special guests affected by gerrymandering in MD – THE DISTRICTS THEMSELVES! They will share with you their troubles in ensuring all of their district residents have an equal say in government, and let you know what you can do to help fix this problem!
We will have 8 people dressed as the 8 Congressional districts of Maryland – and you could be one of them!

We will provide you with some facts about your district to share with our grassroots supporters, and if you have any personal experience to share regarding how you feel about the gerrymandering in your district, we encourage you to do so! Please sign up below, before your district is gone!
We’ll also be hearing from Michael Kimberly, the attorney on the Benisek v. Lamone case, and other key actors in the fight for redistricting reform in Maryland.
OneVA 2021 will also be there to talk about how the fight for reform in Virginia is going, and the push to ensure fair maps in 2021.
Araliya Rubin (age-9), co-author of “The United Shapes of America” coloring book that demonstrates the wackiness of gerrymandered districts will join us and share why redistricting reform matters to kids! http://www.bethesdamagazine.com/Bethesda-Beat/2017/Chevy-Chase-Fourth-Grader-Issues-Challenge-To-Color-Inside-Congressional-District-Lines/
