Our next march is November 10 – 12, from Lancaster to
Harrisburg. Register to march one mile, one day or all three
For those unable to march, MarchOnHarrisburg has a big ask: house our marchers! On Friday, November 10, we need housing for marchers in and around Lancaster, PA and on Saturday, November 11, we need housing for marchers in and around Elizabethtown, PA. You can register to house one or more marchers and indicate which nights you are available to do so here. A MarchOnHarrisburg organizer will contact you.
Why We March
Marching raises awareness about our pro-democracy bills and movement. When we march, we practice democracy and raise hope for our republic. With each footstep, over the miles, marchers organically plan, talk, organize and form the community necessary to sustain this movement.
From May 13th – May 21st, 2017, we marched 105 miles from Philadelphia to Harrisburg. We tackled the extreme heat, downpour of rain, and thick woods filled with the Pennsylvania ticks. We walked through big cities, small towns, and rural farmland. We talked with encouraging people along the way, discussing our simple idea of making corruption illegal in Pennsylvania. We were spoiled by churches and social justice groups with delicious meals and warm beds (or floors!)
Thank you to all of the courageous activists who marched with us and or supported us as we walked from Philadelphia to Havertown, Collegeville, Pottstown, Reading, Womelsdorf, Lebanon, Hershey, and finally to Harrisburg.
Now We Are Going to Do It Again!
Since our legislative demands have not yet been met and Representative Daryl Metcalfe continues to refuse to meet with us, we are once again taking a political pilgrimage to the Capitol Building. From November 10 – 12, we will march 36 miles from Lancaster to Harrisburg, which will be followed by two days of rallies and nonviolent civil disobedience.
In the weeks leading to the march, we will be lobbying at the Capitol every session day. Join us in the struggle for democracy.
