THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Yesterday, we held our Give Day 2022.
From all of us to all of you:
Thank you for working with us to further advocacy work around economic opportunity, unions, taxation, health care, education, voting, and other policies—all more important than ever.
Your support makes the work of the Keystone Research Center, Pennsylvania Budget & Policy Center, and We The People–Pennsylvania possible, so that together we can build a better future.
If you missed the livestream events, you can still watch them here on the PA Budget and Policy Center Facebook page Give Day playlist!
September 9–11, March on Harrisburg members and supporters are marching 35 miles from York to Harrisburg. On September 12, they will be forcing a vote on the Gift Ban on the House floor with a legislative maneuver last used successfully in 1921, and they will either celebrate or engage in nonviolent direct action. This is their fourth march and their first march since May 2019. You’re invited to join for however long you can and in whatever ways that make sense. (There are plenty of non-marching ways to plug in.)
HELP US TO HELP YOU
Keeping track of the Commonwealth’s numerous groups and organizations can be a daunting task. To that end, we’ve launched an online form for you to alert us to any events, actions, social media, news, etc. that you’d like us to amplify!
You can also DM us on our social media accounts or email Jay at Grandis@pennbpc.org.
We hope you found this week’s eBlast valuable, and we appreciate your support and the demanding work you all do in your own areas every single day. Keep on keepin’ on!
