Chairman Metcalfe: #CallAVote

Last May, March on Harrisburg embarked on a 10-day, 105-mile political pilgrimage from Philadelphia to Harrisburg. Upon arrival in Harrisburg, 28 activists were arrested while attempting to speak with State Government Committee Chairman Representative Daryl Metcalfe. Metcalfe is one of the only legislators that has denied March On Harrisburg a meeting during their six month Citizen Lobbying campaign leading up the march, and as Committee Chairman, the only legislator with the power to advance these bills for a vote. 

On September 11th, March on Harrisburg resumed their Citizen Lobbying Efforts, traveling to Harrisburg for dozens of meetings with legislators to demand hearings and a vote on their bipartisan, good government reform bills: SB 22/HB 722: Independent Redistricting Commission, SB132/HB39: Gift Limitations for Public Officials, and HB 193: Automatic Voter Registration. HB 722 now has 96 co-sponsors, very nearly a majority of the House. Yet, Metcalfe still refuses to schedule hearings or a vote for the redistricting reform legislation.

March On Harrisburg will continue their lobbying efforts at the Capitol every session day leading up to their next actions. From Friday, November 10 through Sunday, November 12, March on Harrisburg will march 36-miles from Lancaster to Harrisburg. Kickoff for the rally is at 9:30 a.m at Lancaster Square. Following the march, March on Harrisburg will hold rallies in the State Capitol Rotunda and risk arrest through nonviolent direct action. The rallies will begin at 10 a.m on Monday, November 13, and at 12 p.m on Tuesday, November 14. By being a part of this campaign, you are working in solidarity with those that are risking arrest on November 13 and 14.
