Our democracy is in trouble in Pennsylvania and nationally. Extreme economic inequality has created political inequality which results in dysfunctional government. This article with a chart and video explains. This has to change!
The goal of Good Government PA is to restore and maintain a democracy with openness, fairness and justice 4 all in Pennsylvania. At the top of the list of changes needed are redistricting reform, automatic voter registration, a ban on gifts to legislators and public financing of campaigns. However, other GG reforms are needed as well.
There is legislation (listed on page 4) introduced in Pennsylvania each year that, if enacted, would help repair our dysfunctional system. However, most Pennsylvanians never hear about this proposed legislation.
Our Good Government group wants to help citizens across Pennsylvania stay informed, get involved, and take action to pass legislation that promotes a healthy democracy. Our GG Weekly Email Updates, our legislative advocacy work, and our website can help in that effort.
We are organized under the UUPLAN which is the Unitarian Universalist Pennsylvania Legislative Advocacy Network. We welcome all concerned citizens to join in this non partisan effort.
We all need to publicize and advocate for this legislation that would make PA government more democratic, efficient, transparent, and responsive to the will of the people. Also, we need to advocate against legislation that does not support this goal.
