dSHARP Gerrymandering Series

Our lives are greatly affected by how the government decides to group us. The resources we can access, the K-12 schools we’re allowed to attend, and the individuals who represent our interests in Congress are all dependent on how we are organized through districting.

In many cases, "who goes where" is determined by politicians whose decisions are sometimes hard for us to understand.
