Say, “We Want Bernie For President”

In solidarity,  Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F., Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, Dr. Bill, Dan, Donna, and Janis—your PDA national team.

Our Empowered Movement Is Growing All Across The USA
South Carolina Votes Saturday, Then Comes Super Tuesday
Support PDA’s Hard Work To Transform American Politics


Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) helped spark the Bernie Sanders-inspired political revolution. We launched our Run Bernie Run Campaign in 2014, and successfully “drafted” Bernie to enter the Democratic Primaries. His candidacy has done so much to elevate our progressive platform, and we’re just getting started.

We founded PDA in 2004 because we were concerned that fundamental progressive values—Medicare For All, stopping Global Warming, ending wars and occupations, economic and social justice—were lost behind the neoliberalism and neoconservatism holding sway in both major parties.

PDA supports progressive candidates who will fight for life-saving policies and fundamental systemic change to counteract rampant greed and divert expenditures to meet human needs. If you agree with our essential mission, then please pitch in to help empower our efforts to expand and empower the progressive movement.

In a very real sense, PDA’s Run Bernie Run campaign persuaded Bernie to run for president—and without us it might have never happened. PDA also encourages progressive champions to run for the House and Senate.

If you support PDA’s sustained hard work to give voters a reason to vote, then please pitch in to support our efforts. We are working to elect Bernie and several other outspoken progressives.

Not supporting Bernie for President? No worries, let Mike Fox know. He’ll get you active with our organizing for a Progressive Congressional Wave.

Bernie won the most votes in Iowa and New Hampshire, and he won overwhelmingly in Nevada. We should all be proud of our activism. After all, we helped make that happen. Now comes much more difficult contests in South Carolina, and then on Super Tuesday where the way forward becomes much tougher.

When you challenge a multi-trillion dollar system with nearly all the levers of power at its disposal, you must anticipate ferocious attacks. They’re already coming for us.

Pete Buttigieg actually accused PDA of being a “dark money group!” It gets worse. Chris Matthews, the longest-standing MSNBC host, literally compared our movement for justice to Nazi Germany attacking France, and claimed we’ll “execute” him for being a millionaire.

If you agree someone must remain independent and free to refute these misleading narratives and set the record straight, then please dig deep and pitch in to empower PDA’s truth-telling advocacy for our transformational, diverse, people-powered movement.

Bernie has a deep understanding of the systemic problems we face. We agree with him when he says, “Most people have given up on the political process. They understand the political deck is stacked against them. They think there is no particular reason for them to come out and vote—and they don’t.”

Our job is to help bring together a massive grassroots populist / progressive coalition that can win elections and transform our political and economic systems so they work for everyone—not just the oligarchs.

That’s been PDA’s mission since our founding. If you support our mission, please sustain our work with an automatic monthly donation. We need 100 new automatic monthly donations before Super Tuesday (March 3rd) to pay for:
