We started our work in January of 2017 as a small group of organizers looking for a way to channel our anger and grief after the 2016 election into action and change.
Our goals, even then, were clear–flip our General Assembly and make sure PA goes blue at the Presidential level in 2020. Since that time, we have flipped seats at the local, county and state levels through the tireless efforts of thousands of volunteers-YOU!
Sign up to phone bank on weekdays to flip the PA House, this weekend to win pivotal Bucks County, and at Women to Women Wednesdays.
And, share our video showing how EASY it is to vote in PA! Tag your PA friends.
This is the moment we have been waiting for and working toward. This is our time. We can flip the PA General Assembly and deliver PA to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, but we need you to dig deeper than ever. With three weeks to go, triple your efforts and push outside of your comfort zones.
Voting has started! We need your help to reach every single one of our supporters to help them make their plan to vote and to ensure that every voter casts their ballots properly and on time. Sign up and then sign up again. If not now, when?
Here’s when we’re calling:
- Monday-Thursday with shifts from 5-7 PM and 7-9 PM for PA House candidates: Flip the House Phone Bank Sign Up
- Phone bank support: Zoom training and meet the candidate at 4:30 PM, followed by a 5-7 Zoom party. Or, Slack support from 5-7 PM. New phone bankers encouraged to join!

Saturday-Sunday, 10/17-10/18 from 12-2, 2-4, and 4-6 PM: Ballots should be arriving in mailboxes all throughout critical Bucks County, and it’s our job to help get them back! You’ll be provided with all the information you’ll need to answer questions about filling out ballots and options to return them in time.
Training will take place 30 minutes prior to each shift, so at 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, and 3:30 pm. We’ll have immediate support on our Slack channel, so you’re never alone while you’re making these important ballot chase calls!
Join us to call hundreds of thousands of women across PA—from the cities to the suburbs to the farms at the heart of our Commonwealth. Last week 150 amazing volunteers made 50,000 calls in one evening. At each event, we’ll meet on Zoom for training on the dialing system and review the script and voting information in PA.
We’ll also be joined by special guest State Rep Leanne Krueger to kick off our dials with some inspiration.
VOTING IS EASY!
