On Facebook? Help Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts

Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts (PMC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring that everyone has access to fair and impartial judges and juries in Pennsylvania. Public confidence in our state’s courts is distressingly low, in large part because of the perception that money and special interests erode judicial independence. By working to change the judicial selection process, improve the jury system and court administration, and combat bias in the courts, PMC is fighting to make sure that our goal is not just an aspiration, but a reality for all Pennsylvanians.

We have the opportunity to help PMC win a significant grant through the Chase Community Giving challenge on Facebook. Facebook users who participate in the challenge by becoming fans of the Chase Community Giving site get to vote for small nonprofits they believe are worthy of philanthropic support. The top 100 vote getters will receive $25,000 grants and the opportunity to earn more through a second round of voting. First-round voting continues until December 11.

This is a great opportunity for PMC. Please join me in voting for Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts. Check out

Thanks, Gina! Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts is hard at work trying to improve our courts. The grant money would make a huge difference for us, especially in these tough times. Thanks for your support! If you're on facebook, please vote for Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts!
