WASHINGTON, D.C.–People’s Action today issued the following statement from Movement Politics Director Marta Popadiak, congratulating Sara Innamorato on a victorious primary campaign for Allegheny County Executive. 

“Sara Innamorato is one of us, and that’s why we endorsed her for Allegheny County Executive. She attended People’s Action’s candidate training, worked alongside our members and many other activists in Pennsylvania to pass harm-reduction legislation, and co-wrote the Whole Homes Repair Bill with our affiliate, Pennsylvania Stands Up. We congratulate her on running a successful, co-governing campaign.

“We’re confident that Sarah will govern alongside People’s Action’s member groups in Pennsylvania to advance wins for the multiracial working class. We’re proud of her campaign and excited to see her lead in her new role.”


People’s Action builds the power of poor and working people in urban, rural, and suburban areas to win change through issue fights and elections. We are a national network of 38 state and local grassroots power-building organizations in 28 states–united in the work of building a bigger “we.”
