Citizen Lobbying

We have met with every Representative and Senator in Harrisburg willing to take a meeting with us.  In 2017, we lobbied over 230 of the 253 legislators in Harrisburg on behalf of our bills.

 

Marching

Marching raises awareness about our bills and the democracy movement. When we march, we practice democracy. With each footstep, over the miles, marchers organically plan, talk, organize and form the community necessary to sustain this movement. In 2017, we marched almost 150 miles across Pennsylvania during two political pilgrimages to the State Capitol.

 

Non-Violent Civil Disobedience

The goal of nonviolent direct action is to force an encounter between citizens and their government. The goal of our nonviolent direct action is to confront our public servants and insist that they see themselves as human beings obligated to serve the public. Our direct action also serves as a reminder that we are human beings who deserve to more fairly participate in making the collective decisions that govern our lives. Nonviolent civil disobedience  In 2017, we organized six actions that resulted in 42 arrests at the State Capitol. In the summer of 2018, we occupied Governor Wolf's office and home, resulting in his support of a speacial session, and six pro-democracy were warriors were arrested at Speaker Turzai's home, while asking for a meeting and that he act on gerrymandering reform.
