Rally for a Responsible Budget

On Tuesday, May 3rd at 1PM, Pennsylvania NOW along with the Better Choices Coalition of Pennsylvania and the CLEAR Coalition will hold a budget rally on the Capitol steps in Harrisburg. We expect over 3,000 people from across the state to push back against a cuts-only budget that puts us all at risk.

Call on the legislature to close corporate tax loopholes before they close literacy and job training classes, domestic abuse shelters, and other cost-effective local programs that serve people with disabilities, children, seniors, and our neighbors in communities around the state still recovering from the recession.

Rally for a Responsible Budget
Tuesday, May 3rd
Capitol Steps, Harrisburg

Wear white to show your support, and bring signs and banners from your organization.

If you would like to participate in legislative visits before and after the rally, register at Click that you are driving yourself (all 70 buses are full). Report between 10:30 and 11 to the registration table behind the State Museum to receive your ticket for a free box lunch (for those who registered), and talking points for the visits.

Harrisburg will be crowded on May 3rd, so please leave ample time to find parking and get through Capitol security.
