That's why we'll be there too - because we're serious about making sure this year's budget puts the people of Pennsylvania first. A budget that funds important basic services like healthcare and education by making sure everyone - including big corporations - pay their fair share.
Right now, there are members of the General Assembly who want to gut vital programs everyday people depend on and put more free money in the pockets of corporations and the super-rich.
Here's what's at stake:$200 Million in Healthcare Funding$62 Million for Child Care Services$50 Million for Pre-K and Head Start$95 Million for Correctional Institutions$8.5 Million from Safe Schools Initiatives
Showing up on June 5th is how we demand our elected officials pass a people's budget.
Can we count on you to be there?
