Chuck, any successful organization has state and local chapters. Your comment borders on absurd.
No, PARSOL is not hurting the cause, and you are lucky they are forming in PA. We do work together. That’s why they are affiliated with NARSOL.
Do you know how many states still don’t have a their own chapter? They might as well be North Korea, it’s very hard for us to get accurate information out of those states, as there is nobody sending us articles and letting us know what is going on there.
The affiliate groups hold meetings and help us raise awareness in their states, and NARSOL can support challenges to their laws.
