Hate Has No Home in PA
Combat hate with a robust update to PA's hate crimes laws expanding the protected groups to cover LGBTQ+ and disabled people, strengthening civil and criminal penalties, and increasing training for police and educators.
Pass Sensible Gun Laws in PA
The vast majority of Pennsylvanians support common sense gun laws such as universal background checks and emergency removal protection orders. These laws have passed the House with bipartisan support. Urge your Senator to support them!
Driver's Licenses for All
Support HB769, granting driver's licenses for all PA residents who pass the exam, regardless of citizenship.
End the Death Penalty in PA
Urge PA representatives to support HB999 and end the death penalty in the Commonwealth.
Filter First
There is no safe level of lead consumption, but unfortunately, many school districts in Pennsylvania are providing drinking water that contains lead. SB986 would require a statewide Filter First policy to make sure our students have safe drinking water.
Help Churches, Communities Go Solar
HB 1842 enables community solar projects in PA that would allow us to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions while helping to create a more resilient energy system.
Help Relieve Medical Debt
Urge PA Senators to support HB 78 to give needed relief to Pennsylvanians with large medical bills.
Let's Build on What Works to Tackle PA's Housing Crisis
Two bipartisan proposals pending in the state Senate would tackle homelessness and blight, plus help keep seniors in their homes. Ask your senator to support them today.
Protect Against LGBTQ+ Discrimination in PA
In Pennsylvania, more than half a million LGBTQ+ residents are vulnerable to discrimination every day because of a lack of express and enduring protections at the state level. It's time to make PA a safe place to live, love and work for everyone.
Expand Lunch Options for Students Across Pennsylvania
SUN Bucks is a child nutrition program aimed at keeping kids fed during the summer months. A universal school lunch program would enable all K-12 students in Pennsylvania to access lunch in school, including those experiencing food insecurity.
Support Funding for State's Major Anti-Hunger Programs
More than 1.2 million Pennsylvanians face hunger. Food pantries have seen an uptick in need. The State Food Purchase Program enables Pennsylvania's charitable food network to provide nutritious food to low-income families.
