Are you tired of voting for the lesser of two evils—for the “better” of “no way” vs. “who cares?” Me, too. Every day I wake up and before I have finished my morning coffee, I am outraged, depressed, scared, and deeply saddened by this administration’s continued assault on people of color, children, immigrants and other vulnerable populations, as well as our environment, American values, our allies, the truth, and plain old decency.

Have you had enough? I have. If you have too, then please click here to support Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) right now by credit or debit card or check.

We Need A Progressive Congress

During the next three months, primary contests will determine who will stand for election in November. We need your support right now to ensure we have great candidates to vote for, not just the “evil of two lessers.” We know we’ll get no help from a Congress infested with members who bow down before corporate lobbyists and their mega-donors.

There is little recourse from the courts that have been overrun with right-wing demagogues. PDA is struggling on your behalf every day, but we’re not going to sugar coat anything. Stopping bad legislation only delays the all-top-often inevitable. The oligarchs and ideologues regroup and bide their time, then try again when fewer people are watching.

The only way to slow this erosion of our democratic values and to push forward with hard-won progressive policies is to elect a Democratic Majority in the House and Senate, but that’s not enough. We can’t win with DINOs (Democrats In Name Only) and GOP-Lite Corporate Democrats. We need to elect Progressive Democrats—candidates who are proudly and loudly pro-99% not beholden to the special interests.

Will you help us help elect these Progressive Democrats so they can join our champions already in Congress? Your gift of $27, $20.18, $12, or even $5 each month will make the difference between victory and defeat. Any amount is welcome! The first 20 new sustainers (or current sustainers who sign up for another monthly gift) will receive a “Corporations are Not People” button and a “Vote Progressive 2018” bumper sticker as our gift to you.

PDA endorsed 17 progressive champions for the U.S. House and Senate, and primaries are coming up every week. Help us help these great progressives who are putting themselves on the line for working and disabled people, documented and undocumented immigrants, economic and social justice, and a more sustainable future.

Become a PDA monthly sustainer to keep our Get Out The Vote (GOTV) phone banks talking the talk and our canvassers walking the walk. We need your support right now to make a difference on Election Day.

Please stand up for the best candidates, women and men who will fight for us, for the America and the planet we cherish. Your monthly gift of $27, $20.18, $12, or even $5 helps us budget our resources, increase the flexibility of our response to events and campaigns, and be an effective force in choosing better candidates for the general election. Any amount is welcome!

In solidarity,
