Massachusetts volunteers working to elect Democrats and Progressives in Pennsylvania
We work remotely and in-state to keep Pennsylvania blue. Our activists
conduct letter and postcard campaigns;
text and phone bank;
fund print, radio, and digital ads; and
provide logistical support
for groups working in the rural red areas we need to win in upcoming elections.
Our story: MA Flip PA
Living in the Massachusetts “blue bubble,” it’s easy to feel there’s little you can do to protect our democracy from a rapidly increasing number of far-right attacks. But what if you look further afield? Pennsylvania, the closest big (19 electoral votes) swing state to Massachusetts needs not only our financial contributions, but our time, talents, and political activism. By working to elect Democrats, not only at the Presidential and Congressional level, but at the gubernatorial, legislative, and county level, we help protect voting rights and the vote counting process against right-wing attack in this critical swing state.
That’s why we formed MAFlipPA, a Massachusetts-based political action group that connects 450+ Massachusetts residents with trusted Pennsylvania-based partners all working to elect Democrats and progressives to local, state-level, and national office.
Pennsylvania is the closest big swing state to Massachusetts. Only a four to seven-hour drive away lie major swing population centers ready for canvassing and other vital in-person work. Unlike many states, Pennsylvania voters elect both the legislature AND the judiciary. Both will be involved in shaping future congressional districts, adjudicating challenges to voter suppression laws, and affirming presidential election results. By working to elect Democratic and progressive legislators and judges in the state, we can ensure that Pennsylvania's voters, and its 19 electoral college votes, will not be silenced.
