The democracy movement needs YOU! Interested in getting more involved in the fight to #endPAcorruption and restore democracy in Pennsylvania? 

We are barnstorming across PA, hosting events in over 20 cities and towns where we will educate and mobilize for March on Harrisburg and the Poor People's Campaign!

Speakers:
Adam Eichen - Co-author with Francis Moore Lappe of Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want
Rabbi Michael Pollack - Executive Director of MarchOnHarrisburg

Additional organizers from the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival and MarchOnHarrisburg will be added. MOH has signed onto Rev. William J. Barber, II's Poor People's Campaign, a 6-week national campaign that will engage in nonviolent civil disobedience simultaneously at 25 State Capitol buildings across the country, intended to launch a “moral revival” in our national political debate.

After our speakers, we will hold a citizen lobbying training and contact our State Representatives for a meeting on our two pieces of anti-corruption, pro-democracy legislation. We will also be providing training and organizational infrastructure on how to participate in the campaign and/or risk arrest during the six weeks of action.
