This has been one of the craziest weeks in a crazy year. But we can end this nightmare if we stay focused and get out the vote.
Here’s what we did just last week.
Last Wednesday, nearly 100 women made over 13,000 calls in one night.Sign up for women-to-women Wednesdays, or call on weeknights to flip the PA House and weekends to flip the PA Senate.
Last week, Turn PA Blue supporters gave over $11,000 to PA General Assembly candidates. Donate to FLIP the 4 seats we need to take the PA Senate.

Stay safe. Stay calm. And most of all, stay focused. Keep reading to see how you can help us win.
