Advocacy for the undereducated, underrepresented, and underserved.

Solidarity is unity (as of a group or class) that produces or is based on universities of interests, objectives, standards, and sympathies. It refers to the ties in a society that bind people together as one. What forms the basis of solidarity varies between societies. The basis of the PADCʼs solidarity is our shared values of equity and equality for the under-served, under-privileged, and under-represented black and brown people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
