About Us
For Our Future is a progressive organization that is focused on building power for working families around the state of Pennsylvania. We are grassroots, which means we build power from the ground up. The only way we are successful is by mobilizing our communities to act.  

Want to help build a progressive voice in Pennsylvania? Want to help protect democracy? Want to say you made a difference in the 2020 election?  Then join For Our Future as we work to turn Pennsylvania blue in November. The duties of our volunteers typically involve:

1.     Making calls to voters in your community to educate them about voting by mail or in person in November.

2.     Texting your neighbors to ensure voters know their rights.

3.     Attending a virtual event. 

4.     Telling your story about the importance of the election in a video to post on social media.

Being that NEPA is a culturally diverse region, we are also looking for Spanish speakers to assist in our efforts to cultivate a positive voting experience and get the message of For our Future out to all those living in the region.
