UPDATE JUNE 9, 2022:

CLICK HERE TO TAKE ACTION!

Instead of working to implement common-sense gun reform and to fully fund public education (with the more than $13 BILLION in extra funding in the state's coffers), here's what the Pennsylvania legislature is working on:

  • Anti-trans legislation [Read and share the twitter thread here.]
  • Anti-worker legislation [Read Philadelphia AFL's statement here.]
  • Voucher bills [Read more on why we oppose vouchers here.]

Read our full legislative platform here. [You can also see if your elected officials have signed on! If they have not, ask them why!]

Though there is a comprehensive package of historic education funding put forth by Senator Hughes and the Democratic leadership, and though there is $13 BILLION in extra funding available, the state legislature is instead looking at voucher schemes that would take more money from public education.

And though there have been more than five dozen gun safety bills proposed by the PA House Democrats, the House Republicans have let exactly ZERO of them come to a vote.

Read Jerry's op-ed on the urgent need for investments and the passage of Senator Hughes' plan.

Tell your elected officials that we need ACTION on education funding and gun reform NOW. Demand that your elected officials oppose bigoted anti-trans legislation; oppose all attacks on workers' rights; and oppose voucher legislation.
