About Us

PA Spotlight is an accountability and investigative organization building power through research reports, commentary, digital organizing, and tracking organizations who fight against the best interests of the working class. We look out for everyday Pennsylvanians by holding elected officials accountable and exposing billionaire-funded anti-union efforts and front groups across the Keystone State. For working Pennsylvanians, we are the central resource for exposing right-wing extremism in the state.

Since our launch in 2016, we have used our accountability campaigns to expose efforts to bring an extreme, divisive agenda to our state. We’ve received national attention for our investigative work on a range of issues that matter to working Pennsylvanians, including investigating the dirty business of Scott Wagner’s Penn Waste, exposing former Speaker of the House Mike Turzai and Betsy DeVos’ attacks on teachers, and how extremists in Pennsylvania constitute a growing right-wing threat bad for democracy.

We work to educate Pennsylvanians on the funding and support network behind these dark money groups. To date, our research work and commentary has been cited in numerous media outlets in Pennsylvania and across the country.

The best way to stay up to date with our latest information, research, and news is to sign up for our email list. Twice a month, we send our Capital Spotlight newsletter where we share the latest on what’s happening in Harrisburg and beyond. We promise to send you only our most important updates.
