Progressive Democrats of America was founded to stop global warming and protect public lands. Every day, climate change denier Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is in office, he works to destroy our public lands and waters at the expense of our communities. Fourteen federal investigations are exposing Zinke’s decision-making, misuse of funds, and potential corruption. Take action to fire climate denier Ryan Zinke, then support PDA-endorsed champion Mark Pocan, (D WI-2).
Zinke is destroying our wild places and communities for the benefit of his wealthy corporate cronies and friends. Take action here. Then support Progressive Champion Mark Pocan. Mark has been outspoken on environmental issues, especially opposing expansion of fossil fuel extraction by hydraulic fracturing (fracking). He is a member of the Safe Climate Caucus, united in the understanding that climate change is the moral issue of our time. Mark understands the value and urgency of protecting our public lands, entrusted not just to today’s society, but to future generations of Americans.
The short-term solution is our call for Ryan Zinke to be fired. Our next task—and it is a huge one—is to get more progressives elected to Congress to push back on this administration’s drive to deregulate and destroy the agencies that protect our land, air, and water. Your monthly donation of $20.18, $12, $10, or $5 gives us the ongoing resources to keep up the fight for healthcare as a human right. We can only continue with your support. To keep up our efforts, we need your help now! Election Day is coming up quickly. Together, we can help progressive candidates win!
As all of us at PDA know and Dr. King told us, “Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle.…” If you can give $5 per month, that’s great! $10? Wonderful! $25? Spectacular! Whatever is good for you is great for us. Thanks so much for anything you can do right now to help us reach our magic 100 new monthly sustainers goal.
