Know Your Elected Officials
Local politics is where we can have the greatest impact to push for progressive policies. The most obvious way is by voting for progressive representatives and officials. Outside of this, when we petition and pressure these officials, they hear their constituents most loudly. Through voting and activism, we can achieve the goals of:
1) Putting progressives in office.
2) Pressuring current officials and representatives to follow through with progressive policies.
In order to effectively do this, we must all be aware of who is in office, what they stand for, and what they vote for. We must also be aware of who is running for upcoming elections. That is why we have compiled a list of all elected offices voted for by Philadelphia County (eventually to be expanded to the greater Philadelphia area), complete with their policy stances and general information about them.
