The Organization -

We are Pennsylvania Stands Up. We are joining forces because we are aligned in our conviction that there's a massive unorganized base of voters in our state that can be organized when we do the work. We committed to building on our successes from the past three years; to both deepen and scale our work to build people power across Pennsylvania, especially in small cities, towns, and rural areas, while working collaboratively with a broader alignment of allied organizations. We're eager to consolidate lessons from the past three years-to win elections, win issue campaigns, and win power for everyday working people in our state.

We are an independent political organization by and for the many. We organize Black, brown, and white working people across Pennsylvania's cities, towns, and rural areas. Our chapters in Lehigh, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Cumberland, Dauphin, York, Berks, and Philadelphia counties build grassroots leadership, fight on our issues, and win elections. Together, we are building the durable political infrastructure necessary to win governing power and enact bold, redistributive measures for the common good.
