This year, we aren’t playing around. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we aren’t holding our happy, crowded, buzzing and bubbling annual Play-In for Climate Action in Washington, DC. Instead, we're asking legislators across the country to join us for virtual events and conversations with their constituents to talk about air pollution, climate action and what we can do to fight the climate crisis where we live.
About Rep. Innamorato:
Rep. Sara Innamorato is guided by a mission: leveling the playing field to ensure that all Pennsylvanians have equal access to opportunities to lead a life with dignity. Innamorato champions improved and expanded Medicare-for-all, a fair tax system, economic dignity through fair pay and a union, affordable housing, clean air and water, and the best possible schools for our children.
After graduating from North Hills High School, Innamorato worked her way through college, graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in business. As she pondered her career path, she realized her desire to use her business acumen to better people’s lives. After completing a leadership program with an international tech company, she took a job with a small nonprofit organization dedicated to resident-led community development, creating opportunities for employment and environmental stewardship.
In time, she launched her own business, Innamo Co. With a mission of “marketing for social good,” the company works with other organizations dedicated to bringing about positive community and policy change through events and initiatives focused on food access, social justice, women’s rights and other human rights issues.
Innamorato also co-founded an initiative called “She Runs SWPA,” which aims to empower more women to run for elected office in the region. In time, she realized that she wanted to join them and bring new leadership to the Commonwealth.
A proud Lawrenceville resident for nearly a decade, Innamorato volunteers as a member of the Lawrenceville United Housing Committee and as a steward to the community’s gardens – a job she considers a good metaphor for nourishing solid community roots.
