The Pennsylvania District Shaped Like Goofy Kicking Donald Duck

The Pennsylvania District Shaped Like Goofy Kicking Donald Duck

Igor speaks with his guests about Pennsylvania's gerrymandered congressional map and the harmful effects on communities of color.

The redrawing of some congressional maps across the country could have a major impact on this year’s midterm elections and beyond. Pennsylvania’s congressional map—widely viewed as among the nation’s most gerrymandered—is at the center of prolonged court battle. Igor speaks with Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims (D); Joan Duvall-Flynn, president of the NAACP in Pennsylvania; and Micah Sims, executive director of Common Cause Pennsylvania, about how gerrymandering in the state has disenfranchised communities of color and how other states can follow their lead in fighting back against these undemocratic practices.
