A New Take on Patriotism – Jul 2, 2021

 

 
 
 

A Novel Way to Show Your Patriotism

Since the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, Americans have been working tirelessly to perfect our democracy. Child labor laws, women’s suffrage, civil rights, and environmental protections are outcomes of that work. 

America’s “birthday” this Sunday comes at a pivotal time in our country as we grapple with the threats to our democracy that are embedded in systemic racism. From online activism to marching in the streets, today’s citizens are following in the footsteps of the original revolutionaries who understood that action fuels democracy.

With Pennsylvania’s schools so underfunded and so many children suffering in poverty, like America’s fight for independence, we can’t relent.

Show your patriotism by updating your contact info.

PCCY’s dynamic e-advocacy tool connects you with your federal and state lawmakers and an entire network of advocates creating a groundswell for change. Consider updating your info as a patriotic act this holiday.

Whether you’re an armchair activist or out there with your megaphone, PCCY’s online advocacy system can be a great tool.

As an added bonus and in the spirit of improving education, for every person like you who updates their info, a Philadelphia student who otherwise couldn’t afford it will get to go to an amazing e-gaming camp this summer. 

Thanks in advance! We wish you and your family a safe and happy July 4th!
