Accountability PA is an all-volunteer feminist collective committed to holding elected and party officials accountable for sexual misconduct and violence.

We came together in 2018 to demand State Senator Daylin Leach's resignation after a number of survivors and witnesses went public, alleging a history of serial sexual misconduct by Senator Leach.

After six months of protests, story-sharing, and organizing, we were able to pressure the State Senate Democrats into launching an investigation into rape allegations against Leach.

Now, he's suing three of our activists for defamation.

To summarize: Senator Leach is suing three #metoo activists-- all of us survivors, one of us a survivor who has been vocal about her experience of being raped by him-- for having the courage to come forward, talk frankly about the allegations against Leach, and call for his resignation.

He thinks this will shut us up, but we won't let him silence us.

These funds will help us afford legal defense. Any funds left over will be used to help cover organizing expenses we've so far been paying out of pocket, like web hosting, travel for protests, and better signs.

Find out more about our work and demand that your state senator take action against Leach at our website, AccountabilityPA.org .

Thank you so much for your support and solidarity!

Since we ran out of room in the event description, we just wanted to add a couple more things here:

• find out more about our work and demand your senators take action against Leach by visiting our website: http://www.accountabilitypa.org

• if there are funds left over (or Daylin decides not to sue us after all) we'll use that money to cover costs for things like signs, web hosting, travel, and other organizing-related Accountability PA costs we've been paying out of pocket so far.

Thank you for your solidarity!
