Thank you

Thanks to your generosity, we met our match for the Indivisible grant in just two days! Your donations plus the matching grant from Indivisible will allow us to put our new ideas for 2024 into action.

Don't Miss Sunday's Frontline Update!

Guest speaker Simon Rosenberg has a message for Democrats: All signs point to a bright future if we keep up our activism. Opportunities abound to reverse the Right's extremist power grabs.

Rosenberg's accurate predictions about the failure of the "red wave" in the 2022 midterms propelled him to develop new initiatives for winning the information wars.  Come to the April Frontline Update to learn how our voices can drown out  the MAGA noise machine.

Help Keep the PA House of Representatives Blue

Calling all phone and text bankers! 

Heather Boyd is running in a May 16 special election that will determine whether Democrats hold onto their razor-thin majority in the PA legislature. 

Boyd is a great candidate: a mom, a teacher, and more recently the District Director for Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon.

Although Boyd's district, PA 163, is a Democratic district, Republicans tend to turn out in greater numbers for spring elections, they have fielded a strong opponent, and they are pouring boatloads of money into this race. 

 We need to  GET EVERY LAST DEMOCRAT out to Vote!
