Erie County United

At Erie County United, we are committed to building solidarity across race, class, and gender.

Erie is being bought by large corporations and billionaire developers, and it’s time that Erie County works for all of us – not just the wealthy few. We are a grassroots movement focused on building poor and working-class solidarity. We are organizing with tenants to identify the issues most affecting renters, building support for a Ceasefire in Gaza, and electing local leaders to office.

In the past, we have:

  • Organized Erie to divest $1 million from the police budget and allocate $4.3 million to Roger Young Park and youth programs.
  • Worked with Erie’s Democratic Socialist Association (DSA) to organize a sit-in at the Erie library to protest the removal of a pride display. We gathered signatures that resulted in Erie County Council passing a resolution to end censorship in our libraries.
  • Ran and elected Jasmine Flores to Erie City Council, Dr. Leatra Tate and Zakaria Sharif for Erie School Board, and endorsed Dr. Tyler Titus for Erie City Council
