About the Event

Our state legislature is failing us. How, you may ask? Here are a few ways:

Education: PA residents graduate from college with the highest amount of debt in the country

Environment: Pennsylvania has the third worst drinking water in the country

Gun violence prevention: Since the Parkland shooting, 26 states (including 15 with Republican governors) have passed and signed 55 laws addressing the gun-violence crisis; but not PA

Equity: Pennsylvania has no statewide law prohibiting discrimination against LGBTQ people, meaning it is legal to fire someone, evict them from housing, or deny them service at a restaurant just because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer

In all major measures, Pennsylvania received failing grades in the quality of the environment, education, healthcare, gun safety and so many others. Join the Executive Team of Represent PA on August 23, at 8:30 am, as we talk about these measures and what is at stake in the 2022 elections.
