One Pennsylvania was formed to hold corporations accountable for paying their fair share, and to stand up for good, family-sustaining jobs, and well-funded public services. Since its inception, One PA has always taken creative action to earn media coverage and influence the public discourse of opinion makers, thought leaders, and our elected representatives. For six years, we’ve been hitting the streets and the halls of power to make the case for justice.
We collaborate with partner organizations and coalitions to share campaign expertise, and build a more strategic, unified, and intersectional justice movement. Below are several of the campaigns and coalitions with which One PA is actively involved.

Great Public Schools: The Schools Our Children Deserve
One PA is a founding member of Great Public Schools (GPS) Pittsburgh. GPS believes that every child is exceptional and deserves every opportunity to excel, and that all students should have the great public schools that families want and children deserve. To achieve this vision, we must address long-standing disparities–often driven by poverty and racism–and we must reinvest in public schools as the hearts of our neighborhoods.
Strong public schools make strong communities. Excellent schools not only create opportunities for students from all backgrounds and abilities, but also keep our neighborhoods vibrant, retain young families, promote property values for homeowners, and serve as focal points for our communities.

The People's Budget
To get Pennsylvania back on track, we need a budget that reflects the priorities of working families. It’s time to hold corporations accountable so that we can provide quality community services, affordable health care, good, family-sustaining jobs, and a safe and healthy environment. It’s time for our representatives and senators to tell us whose side they’re on: Pennsylvanians, or corporations. Learn more about our campaign for a People’s Budget.
