Legislative

A Grassroots Organization

Our policies are born from the local Granges across Pennsylvania.  Legislative proposals, called resolutions, are brought forth by members and debated at the local Grange meeting.  Those that pass at the local level are brought before the State Grange Convention and debated, with passing resolutions becoming State Grange Policy, available in our Journal of Proceedings and Legislative Policy Book. When appropriate, these policies are passed to the National Grange to be debated and voted on by the delegates at the National Grange Convention. Policy at the State and National Grange is developed by membership and implemented by staff in a truly grassroots fashion.

Nonpartisanship

The Grange is committed to an issue-based grassroots process which allows us to support civic leaders based on policy rather than local politics. Although we do not support individual candidates, we strongly encourage our membership to engage in local politics and elections that can better the communities they serve. We open our Grange Halls for candidate debates, issue forums and other civic meetings and strongly believe that voting and participation in our governing systems is a civic responsibility.
