RSVP here to join the national call-in day on December 16th and stop unlimited lobbyist gifts in Pennsylvania.

A lobbyist gift ban is ready for a vote in Pennsylvania, but we have to put pressure on politicians to get it to the House floor now, before it stalls out – otherwise they’ll ignore it and keep the corrupt status quo.

On Monday the 16th, RepresentUs members across the country will call Pennsylvania voters and patch them through to key lawmakers to demand their support for the gift ban.

When: Monday, Dec 16th from 9am ET to 9pm ET

Where: Right from your computer! RSVP to get log-in details.

Voter calls are the most important tool we have to sway politicians and win a gift ban in Pennsylvania. RSVP now to join us for a national day of action on December 16th to win the next victory.
