We stand in solidarity with the students at F&M who engaged in civil disobedience in an effort to call out the school's administration who have failed to adequately address repeated racist incidents involving their students. ... See MoreSee Less
Trump won our state by only 44,292 votes in 2016. We’ve been making up a significant part of that margin right here in Lancaster County these past three years. What we’ve been building here, and what we do this next year, could literally determine whether Trump wins reelection or is defeated.
As we’ve been saying these past three years, no one is going to do this for us. It’s up to us to build an America that works for all of us.
Three years ago we committed together to turn it around—in our community and our country. Hundreds of Lancastrians, many of whom hadn’t been involved in politics before, realized that had to be involved in our democracy.
We’ve gotten involved in so many ways these past three years. Some of us have even decided to run for office. Last night, TWELVE Lancaster Stands Up endorsed candidates won their races for office.
We are disappointed that Hobie Crystle for District Attorney did not win. The conversation that we opened about criminal justice reform through his campaign was long overdue. This is the beginning, not the end. Thank you Hobie for your courage to run, and all you made possible.
We know that change is a long process and that we need to be in it for the long haul. But we’re grateful that we have many victories to celebrate along the way.
This was made possible by every person who volunteered, every person who knocked doors or made phone calls, every person who contributed money.
So let’s take a minute to take in what we’ve accomplished together.
And then let’s not lose a minute getting ready for 2020. Please join us on Saturday, November 16 at 2pm at Brightside Opportunity Center for a post-election mass meeting—Lancaster Stands Up’s 3-year anniversary!—where we’ll dig into our plan to win Pennsylvania in 2020.

Let's rock 2020 💖
You think they might be able to do something about the police precinct profiling black people that live in or drive through the township? It happened to a friend a couple days ago. Baseless reason to bother him... if no crime has occurred, you don’t run plates...
Election Day is tomorrow! It’s been such a long, long journey for so many candidates and volunteers since they announced their runs as early as January. When you put your Plan to Vote into action tomorrow, we hope you can commit to voting for our slate of endorsed candidates throughout Lancaster County.
"Pennsylvania legislators could easily amend current law to provide better support for crime victims, such as additional resources for comprehensive services, more education about existing victims’ rights, funding to expand access to services, and enforcement of the victims’ rights we already have. We can do better. Vote “No” on the Marsy’s Law question on November 5." www.aclupa.org/en/news/why-pennsylvanians-should-vote-no-marsys-law... See MoreSee Less
"As we make tangible impact, people start to see one another in a different light. That’s when we start having tough conversations about how racism is a big reason we haven’t been coming together all along. To be clear, some folks leave. But an amazing number become part of a growing community of people who choose to defy expectations and live in a more inclusive America." ... See MoreSee Less
Honestly, if someone feels so undervalued that a RACIST can pique their interest, it’s not really about being heard anymore.
IMHO, the Party of FDR has put the USA worker on the backburner, and taken up "identity politics." I believe this has been a tactical mistake.
The working class demographic is a population that indludes all races, religions, and creeds.
The GOP (Guardians Of Plutocracy) are eating our lunch with the conservative working class because of their propaganda wars that include some brilliant, albeit disingenuous, and divisive, rhetoric, the likes of which we haven't seen since the rise of the Third Reich... would have made Joseph Goebbels blush.
Part of that involves convincing rural America that their jobs, farms, and towns are never going back to what they were. That's an impossible task to do in a single election cycle: to get someone to accept that about the place they've been told defines them as a culture.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 5. There are only a few days left to make calls and knock doors so that our neighbors know what's at stake at the ballot box. It's up to all of us to make sure our local and municipal governments represent all of us. Show up, say yes, and join our movement.
