Citizen Lobbying

Citizen Lobbying breaks down the barriers of intimidation between citizens and elected representatives. When we lobby, we reclaim power in our democracy often wielded only by donors and high-priced lobbyists. We have met with every Representative and Senator in Harrisburg willing to take a meeting with us.  We have lobbied over 230 of the 253 legislators in Harrisburg on behalf of our anti-corruption bills.



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. In 2017, we organized eight 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 for a special session to end gerrymandering, and then six pro-democracy warriors were arrested at Speaker Turzai's home while asking for a meeting and that he act on gerrymandering reform.
