What We Do

We make calls. We write postcards. We register voters. We speak with our neighbors. And through that work, we've built a Philadelphia movement that reflects our shared values. With training, organization, and action, we've built lasting power on our home turf and powerful alignment with national political muscle that is exercised in every corner of the country.

 

Educate & Engage

  • At our meetings, you can find out about the issues that our members have told us they care about the most. We’ve hosted programs on the environment, health care, immigration, and more. This spring, we're hosting a series of meetings with our elected officials and candidates.

  • Check out our calendar for virtual meetings you can attend from home! And find recordings of past virtual meetings on our YouTube channel.

Voter Registration

  • We have run in-person voter registration drives in city parks, at libraries, street fairs, and even museums. In 2020, we distributed voter registration forms and information in apartment buildings and mailed postcards to voters across Philadelphia. 
     

  • We’ve also developed a toolkit so that you can learn from our experiences and train others.

 

Canvassing & Community Engagement

  • We know that canvassing is the most effective way to reach voters, so we’ve partnered with Turn PA Blue and Swing Left throughout the region to support local progressive candidates. It’s an important way that people living in solid blue districts can help make a difference. 

  • In 2021, we're excited to launch two new programs:

    • We'll start training sessions in April for our Neighborhood Canvassing project, using data to reach potential voters NOW and set the stage for 2022.

    • The "35 Doors" Project will roll out in May/June, and encourages our members to engage on a hyperlocal level with their neighborhood.​​

 
 

Demand Accountability

  • Our government leaders work for us, and we regularly connect with our local Members of Congress (MoCs) to let them know how we feel about important issues. 

  • A big focus in 2021 is making sure Democrats take advantage of their control of Congress to pass 
    structural democracy reform, including:

    • HR 1 (voting rights, anti-corruption, campaign
      finance reform)

    • John Lewis Voting Rights Act

    • DC Statehood

    • End the filibuster

    • Progress on Court reform

  • We make coordinated calls to our MoCs to move forward important legislation and advocate for action, providing you with contact information and call scripts. Sign up for our newsletter so you never miss a call to action!

Postcarding & Textbanking


 

  • In 2018 and 2019, our volunteers wrote tens of thousands of postcards at our Cards & Coffee and Cards & Cocktails events, where you can make friends and make a difference at the same time. In 2020, we even launched virtual postcarding events.
     

  • In June 2020, we launched No Excuses Philly to encourage Philadelphia voters to sign up for vote by mail. We sent out more than half a million postcards! Read more about the project here.

  • We'll be building off of our successes in 2021 with new postcarding projects. Stay tuned!

Mobilize Protests & Actions

  • We partner with MoveOn and other groups to respond to urgent issues--because sometimes, you just need to make a sign or else lose your mind!
     

  • We’ve sent delegations to the Women’s March, hosted a live reading of the Mueller report on Independence Mall, helped navigate the Baby Trump Balloon down the Parkway during a rally for the victims of the hurricane in Puerto Rico, and rallied to "Count Every Vote" in 2020.
