Co-governance

At PA United, we believe our elected officials should benefit their communities, not the wealthy few and corporations. Co-governing allows us to work side-by-side with electeds.

No matter where we live, we all work hard for our families. We believe in putting people and communities ahead of corporate profits. In Western Pennsylvania, we envision a future where everyone, regardless of race or income, can provide for their family, friends, and neighbors. By rewriting the rules and making the wealthy pay their fair share, we can win safe and affordable housing, criminal justice reform, water rights, and a better life for all.
