Elected officials must intervene to halt trumped up charges against Taylor Enterline and Kathryn Patterson

This photo above shows Taylor Enterline staging a peaceful protest for racial justice in front of the Manheim Borough Police station this summer. Sunday, police arrested Taylor and Kathryn Patterson, despite eyewitness testimony that they were serving as medics, and a judge has set bail at $1 million in what appears to be a politically motivated attack on the movement for police reform and accountability. We're calling on elected officials to stand up and push back on the trumped up charges Enterline and Patterson are facing.

As 2020 Election Draws Near, PA Stands Up Announces Endorsements, Plan to Build on Primary Wins

PA Stands Up is building one of the most powerful independent political organizations in the country, capable of making major gains in the 2020 election and on track to win significant governing power by 2023.

As 2020 Election Draws Near, PA Stands Up Announces Endorsements, Plan to Build on Primary Wins

Up to Us

In 2016, Trump won Pennsylvania by just 44,292 votes. In the wake of the election, Pennsylvanians of all races came together, not just in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, but in towns and small cities across the state. Since then, we've made tremendous gains, building one of the most powerful independent political organizations in the country. In the June primary, our organization recruited and supported powerful champions for working people to take on the political establishment—and we won.

Now, as we head into the general election, we're unveiling a slate of 26 endorsed candidates for the state legislature and big plans to defeat Donald Trump in Pennsylvania and put Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the White House.
