May 29 Power of the Pen: Pennsylvania needs a people's budget. Take action to end hunger and hardship!Power of the Pen is a monthly event brought to you by Just Harvest.

Speaking out is a way to exercise your rights.

Speaking out effectively is a way to change the world. Coordinated letter writing to those in power is a proven way to make progress on critical issues.

So join us for Power of the Pen.

Each month we’ll discuss a key policy issue that’s causing hunger and economic hardship in Allegheny County. Then we’ll write letters to government officials and newspapers, calling for change.

orange arrowThis month’s focus: The PA Budget Must Put People First! With Pennsylvania’s budget due June 30, it’s time to take action along with allies across the state to make sure we get a budget that prioritizes people over corporate profits. That means  ensuring key programs and services like General Assistance, human services, and public transit are fully funded in 2019-2020.

All you need to bring is a willingness to put pen to paper to share your perspective of how low wages affect you or your community.
