This past May Day we joined other progressive organizations and created a coalition that mobilized over 500 PA working families to the state capital steps in Harrisburg urging our legislators to: raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and end the preemption rule, offer drivers license for all, fully fund all of our public schools, and permanent funds for the Whole Home Repairs program.
We know when our communities are able to save for our futures, start businesses, get training for good paying jobs, seek higher education– we can participate fully in our world.
PA families deserve a living wage that can support a family. We asked legislators to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and end the preemption rule that has taken power away from local governments to set a wage for their community.
PA children deserve a great education. We asked legislators to fully fund our public schools and close the gap for the poorest school districts with $700 million new funding through the fair funding formula and $300 million in new money for the Level Up program.
PA families deserve safe, stable, healthy homes. We asked legislators to continue the highly successful Whole Home Repairs program and tackle housing insecurity with $300M in full, permanent funding for Whole Home Repairs.
PA families deserve to be safe on the road. We asked legislators to make our roads and communities safer by modernizing the way PA licenses drivers and offering driver’s licenses for all.
