Fair Districts for Pennsylvania is a statewide advocacy organization:  non-profit committed to reducing gerrymandering and other unconstitutional/unethical redistricting of Congressional, Assembly, and State Senate districts.  During 2017/8, FDPA worked with a pair of State Senators on bills to create a non-partisan redistricting commission, which would utilize the post-2020 Census data to develop the three sets of districts.  [In PA, the State Supreme Court intervened in 2017/8 to create interim Congressional districts — praised by most liberals.  These may be under attack in 2020 by ultra-conservative Republican leaders!]
