Organizational Overview: Commonwealth Communications

Commonwealth Communications (Comms2) serves as the communications and digital hub of Pennsylvania’s progressive, public interest, and pro-democracy community. Comms2 writes and produces content for progressive organizations, organic distribution and paid media, coordinates communications with partners and allied stakeholders, and monitors and develops strategies and tactics to best navigate the ever-changing digital and narrative landscape.

Comms2 helps shape the political environment for Pennsylvania’s public interest by centralizing institutional knowledge in a dynamic communications organization. The organization collaborates in filling the needs of partners’ priorities, coalitions, and independent campaigns throughout the Commonwealth.

Comms2 is the ProgressNow affiliate for Pennsylvania with a focus on fostering collaboration and alignment among in-state partners and major national organizations.

Description of Megaphone Program Objectives

Megaphone is a collaboration among state-based communications organizing groups to build an organic progressive media ecosystem to drown out the conservative echo chamber that churns out narratives and spreads disinformation through social media, damaging our democracy.

Pennsylvania’s Megaphone will empower our local partners, organizers, and everyday Pennsylvanians with the skills and opportunities they need to tell their stories through compelling online content showcasing the work of progressive protagonists on the ground in our Commonwealth who make our democracy strong and vibrant.

Comms2 seeks to build an amplification network that empowers storytellers, validators, digital organizers, and amplifiers to drown out the right-wing echo chamber threatening our democracy and win the narrative in Pennsylvania for the common good and shared goals of the progressive movement.
