"Interactive Democracy Toolkit helps grassroots democracy activists"

Prisoners of the Census has put up this press release, which begins: "Today the Prison Policy Initiative launched the Democracy Toolkit, a set of online tools designed to help rural citizens determine if prison populations in legislative districts are diluting their right to equal representation.
