Participate PA is building the capacity of organizations across the state that don't normally do the work, but have natural opportunities to connect with voters and infrequent/non-voting residents. Learn what every organization should be doing this year to effectively increase voter participation – especially among our hardest-to-reach residents.

The 2020 Presidential Election & the COVID-19 pandemics make this the most challenging Election Year in generations. Pennsylvania’s nonprofit & community-based organizations must play a critical role as we prepare for the 11.03.20 Election. Participate PA provides organizations with best-practice information, resources, and partnerships to make a real difference in mobilizing people to vote safely in the 2020 General Election.

Join nonpartisan partners including Keystone Progress Education Fund, The Forbes Funds, Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership, Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group, National Urban League, Pennsylvania Department of State, Nonprofit VOTE, Business For America, Pittsburgh Black Elected Officials Coalition, Pittsburgh City Paper, Pennsylvania Capital-Star & Public News Service.
