Tell Congress to Stop Trump Before
He Launches Another Destructive War


Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and our partners have long opposed Neoconservative strategic designs on Iran—over its oil reserves and its role in Middle East power dynamics as well as its proximity to Russia.

Trump’s attack is illegal and an act of war. We must demand diplomacy and deescalation, before yet another war erupts. We must do all we can right now to prevent the needless suffering and death, the sacrifice of humanity and the horrific increased risk of conflict between nuclear powers.


Act Now! Tell Congress to Pass an Emergency
Resolution to Prevent War Against Iran!


Join us calling on the Congress to reassert its constitutional authority over war powers by passing a resolution demanding diplomacy and deescalation—and explicitly withholding authorization for any and all reckless and provocative abuses of military power before this crisis explodes into open warfare.

This is the crisis many have dreaded ever since Trump recklessly repudiated the multilateral nuclear disarmament deal and began threatening Iran. Of course this is just one of the countless outrages, abuses, and destructive actions Trump and his regime are perpetrating.

PDA is leading the resistance against the Trump Regime. Join and support the movement we’ve been building since our launch in 2004! We refuse to become Trump’s prey, and we need your help right now. Please donate generously to our Resist Trump Action Fund.


P.S. We need your help now. If you feel as we do, we hope you’ll use this action alert to stop Trump from provoking another war! Please sign up with Mike Fox to help organize with PDA.

No time to volunteer? Please donate $500, $50, or whatever you can afford now to help us stand up against Trump.

Tell Congress To End Police BrutalityIn This Critical Moment, We See No Leadership From The White House We Look To Justice-Minded Members of Congress, to Step Up and Lead

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) condemns ongoing, escalating violence against African Americans. We desperately need a national truth and reconciliation conversation to admit and rectify the scourge of structural racism, including comprehensive policy changes.

H.Res.988, cosponsored by four courageous congressional leaders, is a decisive first step. Join us demanding its passage in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In response to the brutal murder of George Floyd by a sworn peace officer, abetted and assisted by three other sworn peace officers in broad daylight, four U.S. Representatives have stepped up to lead.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN, in whose district the murder took place), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) introduced H.Res. 988, a resolution to the U.S. House of Representatives, “condemning all acts of police brutality, racial profiling, and the use of excessive and militarized force throughout the country.”

Tell Congress To End Police Brutality

Take action now! Click Here to email your U.S. Representative and demand passage of H.Res. 988 as a first step toward seeking justice for George Floyd and so many others whose lives have been cut short by police brutality.

“From slavery to lynching to Jim Crow, black people in this country have been brutalized and dehumanized for centuries,” Rep. Omar stated last week. “We cannot fully right these wrongs until we admit we have a problem. As the People’s House, the House of Representatives must acknowledge these historical injustices and call for a comprehensive solution. There are many steps on the path to justice, but we must begin to take them.”

George Floyd is just one among the latest in a (much too) long list of victims of state-sanctioned terrorism against African Americans. We know the names of some recent victims, but for far too long records and statistics on extra-judicial police killings have not even been kept. For too many years, officers have not been charged, and—if charged—they have not been effectively prosecuted or convicted.

Email your U.S. Representative today and demand passage of the Omar-Pressley-Bass-Lee resolution (H.Res.988) condemning police brutality, racial profiling, and excessive and militarized force by police.
