Tell Congress Not to Cave In to Trump’s
Childish Demands for a Racist Wasteful Wall

This week—as Trump’s Temper Tantrum kept much of our Federal Government shut down—the new Democratic House majority took over. And Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was there!We met with newly-elected and veteran members of Congress, as well as with activists organizing to reopen our government without a wall, to develop a #GreenNewDeal, to increase support for the OFF Fossil Fuels Act, and Medicare for All. Please click on the links above and below to make your voice heard!

Speaking of getting heard, PDA’s Executive Director Alan Minsky joined Cenk Uyger and The Young Turks for an inspiring, informative interview. You can watch it here. You can subscribe to the TYT here: TYT Activist Subscription for $10.00 or TYT Insider Subscription for $4.99.

Tell Trump To Reopen Government With No Wall

Tell Congress To Demilitarize The Border

Use our Action Alert to tell your members of Congress
not to cave to Trump’s childish demands for a racist wall

Trump is threatening to cause dangerous international chaos by pulling out of the intermediate nuclear weapons treaty—a truly horrifying prospect. PDA and our partners are calling on Congress to defend the treaty that bans intermediate-range nuclear missiles (INF). Experts are alarmed that pulling out of the treaty will heighten the risks of nuclear war. Click here to tell your Representative and both of your Senators to prevent an escalation of nuclear tensions.

Reminder: sign up to help host a Medicare for All (MFA) Barnstorming Tour event, working with National Nurses United and our other allies organizing events to help us achieve Medicare For All. You’ll be an important part of a massive national week of action February 9th-13th!

Please contact your Representative and urge him or her to join the Medicare for All Caucus.Remember to share this action alert on social media and with your friends (Note: please remain patient if the action alert system is still connecting you with a recently defeated or retired Senator or Representative. Updates are in progress.)

With your help, PDA will continue building capacity, working to bring together and mobilize allied organizations and activists like you to accomplish great things. Your monthly donation of $100, $27, $10, or $5 gives us the resources we need to sustain the struggle for peace, healthcare as a human right, the climate, clean and fair elections, social and economic justice, ending corporate rule, and so much more.

We don’t get a dime from corporations. We rely exclusively on support from activists like you. To build on our midterm successes, we need your help now! Please sign up now to make automatic monthly sustaining gifts or a generous one-time gift now. If you can give $5 per month, that’s great! $10? Wonderful! $27? Spectacular! Whatever you can spare will help keep us working for you. Thanks so much for anything you can do right now to help us reach our goal of 100 new monthly sustainers this month.

Thank you so much for supporting PDA and our shared efforts for progress! We appreciate you more than words can say.

In solidarity,
