Working Families Party


Pennsylvania Working Families Party is a grassroots political party that recruits, trains, and elects the next generation of progressive leaders to office. In 2016 the WFP helped Rep.Chris Rabb defeat incumbent Tonyelle Cook-Artis in a major upset. In 2017 the WFP knocked on 70,000 doors to elect District Attorney Larry Krasner. In 2018, the WFP helped Liz Fiedler win her 4-way primary race with 51% of the vote. And in 2019 WFP made history in Philadelphia by electing Kendra Brooks to be the first WFP City Council member, ending decades of Republican dominance of an at-large seat.
