Expanding democracy by transforming and expanding the electorate
The New Pennsylvania Project (NPP) was founded to expand Pennsylvania's electorate so it reflects the Commonwealth's demographically changing population. We will register them to vote, provide education about the issues that matter in their neighborhoods, and mobilize people to vote in every election - twice a year.

The New Pennsylvania Project (NPP) was founded in May 2021 to expand Pennsylvania’s electorate so it reflects the Commonwealth’s demographically changing population. NPP will engage and empower young residents and those living in underrepresented and often neglected communities of color and immigrant communities. We will register these communities to vote, provide education about the issues that matter in their neighborhoods and mobilize the electorate to vote in every election – twice a year.
The New Pennsylvania Project’s targeted constituencies live in the Capital region, Northeastern PA, Bucks and Allegheny counties, and several cities in the collar counties of Philadelphia. We will engage communities year-round, educating neighbors, colleagues, and friends about civil rights, policing reform, fair education funding, marijuana legalization, economic justice, and environmental justice and stewardship. We will host events and conversations, canvass, inspire, and encourage participation in the electoral process.
When our democracy and our voting rights are under a sustained attack, our work is more vital than ever before. We must engage and empower new voters, if we are to protect free and fair elections.
The New Pennsylvania Project is modeled in homage to the New Georgia Project (NGP) founded by Nsé Ufot and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate, Stacey Abrams. NGP played a leading role in changing the Georgia electorate, and enabled historic Democratic victories in the 2020 Presidential Election and the 2021 Special Election.
