About our group

Congratulations, Paint a State Blue community! We raised $75,178 for the 2022 state legislative midterm elections in PA. The deadline was 10/17 at midnight, so any donations that come in after that will go to the Rapid Response Fund to support quick-response work like last-minute electoral opportunities, ballot curing, helping with recounts, etc. These are no longer PA-specific funds but they are amounts that are going out the door to help for 2022!

Our 2022 work:
The Paint A State Blue Giving Circle was formed by Diane Greenberg and Sandy Sloan after we became appalled that Republicans around the country were attacking state election officials and passing legislation in state houses that rolled back many of the advances in voting rights, civil rights and environmental protection that had been achieved decades ago. We realized that the most cost-effective way to change the direction of the country was to focus on state elections.

Of the organizations that are focusing on state elections, the one that impresses us the most is The States Project. The States Project does the research and provides the platform to help elect majority-making candidates who can shift power in state capitals. For more information on The States Project (TSP), we suggest you watch this two minute video.

Our Paint A State Blue Giving Circle is one of over 100 circles that collectively inspire, engage and expand our communities as our contributions snowball for true impact.

We have chosen to direct our Paint A State Blue contributions to flipping one or both houses of the Pennsylvania legislature. Both houses are currently controlled by Republicans. As a result, they have passed laws restricting ballot drop-off locations and shortening the period of time to register to vote – measures that adversely affect minority voters. They also passed a law to eliminate the requirement to obtain a license in order to carry a concealed firearm (luckily, the Governor vetoed that law), and are pressing for very strict limits on abortions. The newly drawn Pennsylvania maps are fair to Democrats, so it seems that we have a fighting chance of scoring a victory in PA.

TSP’s record shows that relatively small amounts of money can shift the balance of power in state houses, resulting in rapid and meaningful change for people all across the country. Early money is the smartest and most strategic funding, so our Giving Circle is working now at the beginning of 2022. We’re asking you to please join us, the Paint A State Blue Giving Circle, with a meaningful contribution. This year, Diane and Sandy are each contributing $5,000. We are asking you to make a meaningful contribution as well. We are hoping that you will consider a gift of at least $500, more if possible, but be assured that any amount is much appreciated. Donations are to the PAC For America's Future, which fuels the electoral work of The States Project. Your donations go to the PAC, and 100% of the amounts received from TSP Giving Circles by the PAC for America’s Future goes out the door to states.
