Turn PA Blue

 

Turning PA Blue Action Group

Pennsylvania is a State filled with inequality.  Richer school districts often receive more education funding from the State at the expense of needier districts.   Philadelphia and the surrounding counties contribute more revenues to the State through business, income, and sales taxes than any other region of the State, yet we receive only a fraction of that money back in Government services.   While our General Assembly complains about Federal interference in local issues, it constantly enacts legislation to limit the independence of its municipalities.  And even though there are over 900,000 more Democrats in Pennsylvania that any other group, our legislature and Congressional delegation are overwhelmingly Republican.   To address these inequalities, Turning PA Blue is working with our suburban allies to build upon the successes that Neighborhood Networks has enjoyed in Philadelphia, through the identification of progressive candidates, voter registration and engagement, and ancillary services such as research and publicity.
