Unapologetically progressive organizing for political power in Western Pennsylvania.
WHO WE ARE
We are organizers, labor leaders, elected officials, and everyday folk. We have worked together to win dramatic victories in recent years, for candidates running on bold and revolutionary platforms. Nine of us, the founding steering committee of UNITE, have come together to form this organization. The time has come to walk the path to power in Allegheny County!
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe every person should have meaningful work, adequate income, affordable and loving healthcare, clean air and water, and, with others, the power to make our communities reflect our priorities and values. We believe that racism and capitalism have created a deeply unequal and unjust country; that the only way to bring justice to our people is to fight for it. We believe that the political establishment of Pennsylvania governs to the benefit of a privileged few. We believe that every person, if given the chance, can become a powerful force for good.
WHAT WE DO
We give people the knowledge and resources they need to organize for power in their neighborhoods, particularly through local elections. We provide direct support to candidates who share our values and our platform. We work to ensure that power built during political campaigns endures after the election is over. We support labor and community organizing because when we UNITE, we win!
