Fair Districts - End Gerrymandering
When legislative leaders manipulate district boundaries to keep themselves in office or to silence their opposition, we ALL lose. This abuse of our political system has made Pennsylvania one of the most gerrymandered states in the country.
Change is needed. Right now, whichever party has control of the legislature has control of redistricting. Fair Districts PA is advocating for a fair and transparent process that includes public input.

If you believe politicians have no business interfering in the most personal and private medical decisions pertaining to reproductive rights, we encourage you to help us elect candidates who have been vocal in their opposition to restricting these rights.
We all want to protect the quality of life for ourselves and future generations by stopping the degradation of our environment caused by climate change. .

We believe every child in Pennsylvania has the right to a public education that prepares them for college and career. But our legislative leaders in Harrisburg have created a school funding system where the students who need the most get the least, because of where they live. By coming together we can demand that every school gets the funding needed to provide all our children the kind of education that prepares them for a bright future.
