POWER for a Moral Budget: Action and Advocacy Day
Please join POWER Interfaith as we take action together and urge PA state lawmakers in Harrisburg to pass a moral budget that includes fair and full funding for public schools, increasing the minimum wage and ending local wage preemption, and allocating millions of $$ for sustainable home repairs.

POWER Mayoral Candidate Forum
A huge thank you to all who attended Power's Mayoral Candidate forum this past Sunday and contributing to the event's success. Power registered over 800 participants and we were able to hear from leading mayoral candidates. I will be sharing the summary and score cards from the event as soon as I receive them, which should be by tomorrow. And will outline next steps between now and May 16.
