March on Harrisburg is a nonpartisan, statewide group dedicated to healing our wounded democracy and restoring trust to our republic. March on Harrisburg exists to heal the fractured and sorry relationship between government and governed, between state and citizen. March on Harrisburg exists to fight against systemic political inequality and corruption. March on Harrisburg exists to pass legislation regarding money in politics, voter access, and redistricting, and to build democratic and beloved community through our citizen lobbying, marching, nonviolent direct action, and other supporting actions.

Democracy is broken in the United States, and we in Pennsylvania need to lead the way toward strengthening the relationship between citizen and government. The will of the people is separated from the law of the land. Our political system represents the few and the powerful, while the voices of everyday citizens have been drowned out by partisanship and special interests. In a recent Electoral Integrity Project report, Pennsylvania ranked 45th out of 50 states plus DC across 11 metrics of democracy.  Help us heal our political system through citizen lobbying and productive civil discourse with our legislators.  Join us so we can help you understand the process and figure out how you can help best in ending corruption in Pennsylvania.

Our goal is to convince our State Legislature in Harrisburg to pass three bills that would:

  1. Instate Nonpartisan Redistricting.
  2. Place Reasonable Limitations on Gifts to Public Officials.
  3. Create Automatic Voter Registration.

Form a local group of March On Harrisburg

March On Harrisburg is a decentralized organization.  We encourage people interested in ending corruption in Pennsylvania to create their own local chapters of March On Harrisburg.

Talk to friends and family about March on Harrisburg and tell them why you are doing what you are doing. It is more fun and easier to do outreach actions as a group, and it is important to form community to sustain you and this movement. Gather together a group and go through The Document together. Consider ways to include people for whom meeting is difficult (organize a babysitting rotation so parents can participate, organize carpools for those who cannot drive, potluck dinners, etc.). If you would like to be connected with people near you, ask your organizer.  Your organizer can help you get plugged-in so that you can access all our common documents.

Check us out on Facebook and Twitter  Follow us on either platform to be updated on upcoming citizen lobyying events and important updates regarding March on Harrisburg.

We March Because We Believe In Better Government

From May 13-21 we marched 105 miles from Philadelphia to Harrisburg.  From May 22-25 we engaged in direct action to bring attention to the HB 39, a gift ban bill that would help significantly reduce the strangle-hold special interests have on our democratic system.  We will march again because we know how important it is to continue applying pressure on our legislators.  Between now and our next march, you can help through outreach and citizen lobbying.  We encourage all of our members to participate in a citizen lobbying day.  When you meet with your legislators, you start to understand the fundamental problem.  Join Us for our next citizen lobbying day.
