Help NextGen and Equality PA register new voters!

There is so much on the line in the the Presidential election and for Senate here in Pennsylvania. Trump’s growing popularity puts our progressive values at stake- not only does he believe climate change is a hoax—a Trump presidency could be devastating for gay and transgender Pennsylvanians and their families, who live in the only state in the Northeast where you can still be fired for being LGBT. And, Senator Toomey has continued to vote against legislation that would combat climate change as well as endorsed Gov. Mike Pence, the most anti-LGBT governor in the country.

The bottom line is, we can’t let Trump and Toomey represent us on issues from climate justice to LGBT equality, whether it’s in the workplace or at school. Getting students registered and committed to vote across PA is the first step to making our voices heard in November!
