Line in the Street
Created by film makers Robert and Rachel Millman.
This award-winning film on gerrymander reform is about citizen activists and a landmark win for voting rights in the 2018 Pennsylvania Supreme Court case, League of Women Voters Pennsylvania v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This first of its kind lawsuit held that partisan gerrymandering violated Pennsylvania's State Constitution, irrespective of federal law, or federal courts.
