The Leadership Institute is a one day inclusive and interactive learning experience. No prior experience in organizing or with Put People First! PA required. Join a welcoming group of working class people of many backgrounds and learn about our model of fusion organizing with the PA Poor People’s Campaign. We will be teaching our methods of poor people’s organizing, our strategy to make change happen, base building and research skills and our work to target profiteers like UPMC. The event is free. Transportation, food, and childcare are provided and all facilities are wheelchair accessible. Groups involved in the PA Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival especially welcome to attend! 

Health Care is a Human Right!

Put People First! PA is a vehicle for everyday people across Pennsylvania to unite, build our power, and claim our human rights.

We’re organizing across the state through our six healthcare rights committees and members in 17 counties.

We’re a human rights organization, and our current campaign is for the human right to health care: everyone deserves the care they need, when they need it, without going broke. There is enough for all of us – a truly universal health care system is possible. We need to organize to get it.
