Protect Voting and Abortion Access Rights!
Happy Tuesday, Activists! We hope your week is off to a good start! This November's election is all about the PA courts and how they will rule on our important rights. Voting rights. Abortion access rights. Our right to stay safe from gun violence. Gerrymandering. Climate change, to name a few. The statewide judicial positions are critically important on all these issues and more. Remember that they upheld our election results in 2020. You can read a good summary about each of the statewide judicial candidates at these links:
