How to turn these huge Philly protest marches into action

Volunteer, donate, join a community and call your elected official of choice.

anna

At any point Thursday while President Donald Trump and the GOP were in Philly, you could have gone to a protest or demonstration. At some points, you could have seen upwards of 5,000 people taking to the streets. All that action in Philly was less than a week after an estimated 50,000 people crowded the Parkway for the Women’s March on Philadelphia Saturday.

Since Trump was inaugurated, Philly has turned out to protest and take action. Many participants have said this is the first time they protested anything. And if you’re still motivated, there are ways to take your action a step further, whether it’s joining an online community, donating to a group or calling a politician.

So we pulled together a list of ways you can take action in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania based on the issues you felt most compelled to protest.

Important note: This list is in no way exhaustive. If you’d like us to add a group or organization, give us a shout!
