Cheri Honkala has spent almost 30 years working in Philadelphia in and around the 197th for her neighbors and those forgotten by politics-as-usual. As a single mother who overcame homelessness, she has spent her life advocating for the homeless and the hungry--including by founding the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign. Cheri needs your support to fight for the people of the 197th, Pennsylvania's poorest district, in Harrisburg. Please contribute--we appreciate any donation you can afford.

The past two Democratic legislators in a row have plead guilty to fraud charges. Help us end this legacy of corruption. Any amount that you are able to contribute helps. We need to raise this significant amount of money because we are up against the politics-as usual establishment.

As a Green Party candidate, Cheri accepts no corporate contributions--just grassroots donations like yours. As a legislator, Cheri will be beholden to no one other than the community she represents. 

This money will go towards outreach to voters. In this district, many people cannot afford to door knock their neighbors for free when they are struggling for food and housing. We need to provide stipends to our ground team--and to grow our ground team to go up against the politics-as-usual machine. We need donations so we can do targeted radio and TV outreach--especially towards the large, older Spanish-speaking population in the 197th. Your money will go towards reaching more voters!

This is a race that we can win. Already, Cheri has been endorsed by one of the Democratic wards in her district. People are coming together because Cheri has the character of someone who has lived in and fought for this community for nearly 30 years. With your generous contribution, we can put a real-life progressive and advocate in the state house.
