Lancaster Stands Up

Lancaster Stands Up was founded on the idea that our representatives should work for us, their constituents. On Friday, we learned that several Manheim Township Commissioners have taken money from developers with active proposals for new developments in Township. This is deeply concerning.

Last night, we launched our new No Backroom Deals Pledge. It asks that candidates and sitting representatives refuse contributions from individuals and corporate interests that have a financial stake in projects or policy under their authority.

And last night, two of our endorsed candidates took that pledge. Thanks to Manheim Township Stands Up for hosting this event, and to Allison Troy for Manheim Township Commissioner and Barry Kauffman for Manheim Twp. Commissioner for taking this pledge!

Lancaster Stands Up

Lancaster Stands Up is proud to co-sponsor a march on Scott Martin's office to show our strong opposition to SB 323. The bill is meant to scare and intimidate peaceful demonstrators by imposing unconstitutional fines on regular people if they're convicted of a misdemeanor as minor as jaywalking during the course of the protest. Not only does this bill look to suppress free speech, it also incentivizes law enforcement to make more arrests during protests. Rather than pen bills that would improve the lives working families in his district, Scott Martin proposed a measure that will bring voters and their representatives into direct conflict and discourage folks from getting involved in the political process. We will gather at Binns Park on May 31 to begin a March on Scott Martin's office to stand for free speech and our right as Americans to peaceably assemble.
