A Very Special PDA Letter Drop Call Tuesday!

Jul 30, 2017

By Donna Smith, Executive Director and Judy Hess, Associate Director/Field Operations – Progressive Democrats of America

Our Letter Drop Call is this Tuesday night and we have a special request!  Before you join the call, please sign the Petition for Summer for Progress HERE.  See the subject of the bills we will feature on the right side of the graphic.

We’ll also have special guests – members of coalition partners in the Summer for Progress are invited to join us.

Donna Smith will present the info on the letters.  See call details below:

We’ll email you again with links to download the August House and Senate letters by the time of the call.

Our “official” Letter Drop Day will be Wednesday, August 16.

Call Details:

What:                   Letter Droppers’ Call
When:                  Tuesday, August 1   9:00 p.m. Eastern, 6:00 p.m. Pacific
Where:                 Your phone and computer or portable device
Call No:                641-715-3605  Access Code:      699795#

If you intend to drop a letter this month, please email Judy Hess here: with this simple info:

If to a Congressmember – the name, CD number and city (e.g. Costa CA-16 Fresno)
If to a Senator – the name, the state and the city (e.g. Harris CA Fresno)

New to this or rusty?  Here’s the drill – there’s the “before” part, and the “after” part!

Before you go:

  1. Email as above
  2. Download and save the letter(s) you intend to deliver
  3. Insert the correct information in the blanks
  4. Save again, and print
  5. Sign

Now you are ready to deliver your letter!  This is the ground game. If you feel comfortable discussing it with a staffer, you can make an appointment – but if not, merely introduce yourself and advise you are delivering our PDA letter with important information to relay to the Representative/Senator. If you can get a picture of yourself presenting the letter, that is awesome, but not required!

After you drop your letter:

As soon as you deliver (so we can do the air game):

  1. Call or text Judy at 559-907-0279 that you delivered and where (State and CD no or Senator)
  2. OR email Judy at that you delivered and where
  3. If you got a picture, email it to with where you delivered and the names of those in the picture

The air game is this – Mike Fox’s Phone Team makes calls to the office(s) where you dropped the letter(s). Something to the effect of, “Hey this is ____, calling to tell you that the letter ____ dropped at your office today is very important to me.  Please make sure your boss is fully aware of the legislation and our requests!”

Hope to hear your voice on the call!

Until next time…

In solidarity,
Donna Smith and Judy Hess
