March on Harrisburg: Civil Disobedience

We will be lobbying, protesting and performing pragmatic and creative nonviolence at the Capitol. The goal is to have our bills on banning gifts to legislators, ending gerrymandering and establishing automatic voter registration (AVR) moved out of committee and onto the floor for a successful vote.

To join this civil disobedience movement, register here.
