We believe in

the power of people.

 

What if the most powerful political leaders weren’t hidden from public view?

The Keystone Progress Education Fund will be offering some technology grants to activists around the Commonwealth so the most concealed public meetings that impact communities can be live-streamed for the masses. This outreach will make possible the press coverage about injustices happening in your own school board and council meetings, even if mainstream press cannot be there in person.

 

WHAT IF PENNSYLVANIANS HAD ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS AND DATA THAT COULD BETTER INFORM THEIR CIVIC ENGAGEMENT?

The Keystone Progress Education Fund will be training its membership and supporters around research tactics that could very well make the difference for their schools, their local governments, and their communities.

 
 

What if we invested in citizen journalism as a means to amplify our collective voices?

The Keystone Progress Education Fund will be launching media of many forms to connect civically minded folks to the information they need to remain informed and use their collective power for good.
