NEPA Stands Up is committed to recruiting, training, and running transformative candidates for local offices in the communities they live in. Our volunteers knock doors, make calls, write postcards, and strategize!
The NEPA Stands Up LGBTQ Committee is dedicated to protecting queer and trans youth in schools, lobbying local and statewide legislators to pass protections for LGBTQ folks in our communities, and developing workshops for political education for our allies and supporters who will stand with us and demand better for us.
The Fall Listening Campaign is an opportunity to survey the broader community and to ask them about the issues that are most important to them. Pennsylvanians across the state are disenfranchised and fed up with the political system. All too often, our politicians don’t take time to listen to their own constituents and hear the everyday struggles people are facing. As PA Stands Up thinks about what work to focus on in 2024 and beyond, our conversations with PA residents during the 2023 Fall Listening campaign will inform what direction our future work takes.
Housing is a human right, and everyone deserves to live with dignity. NEPA Stands Up is currently forming a Housing Committee to continue the work we’ve done to win $125M for Whole-Home Repairs and $50M in recurring funding, as well as standing up for some of the most vulnerable neighbors in our community.
