What the heck is MAFlipPA and what does it do?

MAFlipPA is an independent, all volunteer group that since 2019 has worked non-stop from our “blue bubble” of Massachusetts to elect Democrats and Progressives up and down the ballot in Pennsylvania. (We are not a “C3, C4, PAC” or other incorporated group and thus are free to coordinate with political campaigns, or anyone else.)


We believe the 2024 election, and the fate of our Democracy, could be determined by a mere tens of thousands of votes in a handful of swing states, of which Pennsylvania is the closest. Pennsylvania is also home to a “must defend” Senate seat (Bob Casey,) three “must defend” House seats (Susan Wild, Matt Cartwright and Chris Deluzio), and a legislature we need to flip blue to enact pro-Democracy and pro-freedom policies under Governor Josh Shapiro.


Since the start of this year, we have:


  • Distributed more than 15,000 postcards (with more going out every week) to volunteers at in-person “Activist Afternoons” in Cambridge and Andover.

  • Provided tools, tips and inspiration to leaders of rural Democratic and Progressive groups through our Rural Reporter email newsletter.

  • Planned canvassing trips to northeast Pennsylvania beginning in April to engage voters early, listening to their concerns instead of just asking them to vote.

  • Distributed “hyper local” news about the benefits of Biden administration policies to swing Congressional districts.

  • And provided everything from Spanish-speaking translators to back-end administrative help to groups operating “behind enemy lines” in red, rural Pennsylvania.


There’s much more we’re planning to do, and not a minute to waste to protect us, our children and grandchildren from the MAGA threat to our Democracy.  Whoever you are, whatever your skills or energy level, you can make a difference now. You can, for example:

  • Become a local post card host, printing post carding instructions and address lists we provide and collating packets for distribution from your porch.

  • Help research, via Web and phone, news about the local benefits of Biden policies to educate and get out the vote in Pennsylvania.

  • Join phone banking and texting events (our sponsors provide training and support.)

  • Do “back office” administrative, database, newsletter writing and other services for us and our partners in Pennsylvania.

  • Canvass with us in Pennsylvania to meet the voters and learn about the communities that will decide the fate of our Democracy.
