Announcing: 2020 Fellows Program—Apply!

Become a Fellow
January 9, 2020

The 2020 Fellows Program is a volunteer program for working people across Pennsylvania. Fellows will draw thousands of people who have been disconnected from politics into the political process and build a community of people committed to revitalizing our democracy. Together, we will be able to bring in the thousands of volunteers necessary to win in 2020 and build progressive infrastructure for the long haul.

In 2016, Donald Trump won Pennsylvania by only 44,292 votes. Since Trump’s election, we have made tremendous gains building grassroots political power in small cities, towns, and rural areas across our state. These efforts are already changing what’s possible.

But to win in 2020 and build our power for long-term change, we need hundreds of everyday Pennsylvanians — people like you — to step up and help build a people’s movement.

Pennsylvania Stands Up and Pennsylvania United are joining forces on the 2020 Fellows Program, which will run through the end of the year.

This is a great opportunity to develop your leadership and organizing skills, with a cohort of peers from across the state and with support from a team of experienced coaches. Participants will deepen their analysis and skills, including skills related to building and leading a team of volunteers, narrative strategy and persuasion, running a door-to-door canvass, and campaign strategy.

Are you interested in joining the 2020 Fellows Program? Click here to apply! All applications are due by midnight on 1/20/20.

There is only one political force that can fix our democracy and create a Pennsylvania that works for all of us. That force is us—everyday working people. So many have struggled to make our state and our nation better. Now it’s our time to take on this work.
