Ending PA corruption, one issue at a time.
MarchOnHarrisburg is a nonpartisan, statewide, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to ending corruption and taking our democracy to where it’s never been. We advocate for pro-democracy legislation with the hope of moving Pennsylvania from the 45th most corrupt state in the country to the most democratic. Currently, we are working to pass legislation that would end legalized bribery and end gerrymandering. To win on these issues, we lobby, march and engage in nonviolent civil disobedience.
