Exclusive Report From The Huge
Vermont Progressive Gathering

Last weekend, I was honored to represent Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) at the huge Progressive Gathering in Burlington, Vermont. The Sanders Institute brought together progressive leaders from around the country and the world. The Gathering was organized around a series of panel discussions on the central tenets of a contemporary progressive agenda; with an emphasis on how all the issues intersect.

It was one of the most impressive events I have ever attended. Every participant brought their A Game, inspired by an understanding that progressive policies are more popular today than at any time in recent decades. I felt re-energized to work for progress. If you’re also energized, please join the PDA Phone Team making easy, effective calls from your own home with Mike “Phone Guy” Fox! No time to make calls? Please pitch in to support progressive organizing including our phone banking, buying mobilization materials, letter drops, and other efforts.

The conference was packed with PDA partners and allies. It was great to meet with them in person. PDA is not just aligned with the cutting edge of the progressive movement; we are an integral partner in that movement. We progressives have a world to win; and the victories we achieve will improve the lives of average people across the country and the world.

The Sanders Institute Gathering confirmed to me that PDA will be central to those struggles and those victories—from winning Medicare For All to achieving a Green New Deal and on every issue discussed—please support the progressive agenda by supporting PDA.
