Building on Tuesday’s Victories
By Mike Hersh, PDA Communications Director for Donna, Mike F., Judy, Janis, Dan, Dr. Bill, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, and Amos—Your PDA National Team
Is America a progressive nation? Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) says it is, and the amazing results in last week’s elections confirm that. We saw strong progressive candidiates and issues win from Maine to Florida, and from New Jersey and Virginia to Washington State, as well as in many places in between. That means Democrats must champion inclusive prosperity, peace, improved Medicare for All, and intersectional social and economic justice to win in 2018 and 2020.Will you pitch in $20.18 (or any other amount) per month to build on Tuesday’s victories?
Since our founding in 2004, PDA has advocated for the popular progressive policies that fueled the meteoric rise of Bernie Sanders’ campaign and brought sweeping victories last Tuesday. PDA has been dedicated to building that wave. We’ve been pushing the Democratic Party back to its progressive roots for more than 13 years, and we’re seeing real results—at the polls and in the halls of Congress—but we need to do so much more.
We can’t do it alone. We need 100 new sustainers—generous supporters who give automatic monthly donations—so we can recruit and bring a new wave of progressives to victory to join our champions in Congress. Signing up for the Win 2018 Sustainer Team at $20.18 per month would help so much, but we appreciate any amount you can spare.
PDA is hard at work recruiting new strong progressive candidates to run for Congress in 2018. We’ve been successful in the past, helping progressives like Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, as well as Representatives John Conyers, Jr, Keith Ellison, Jim McGovern, Barbara Lee, Raul Grijalva, Rick Nolan, Mark Pocan, Tulsi Gabbard, Jamie Raskin, Pramila Jayapal, Ted Lieu, Bonnie Watson Coleman, Nanette Barragan, and others win. PDA needs your help now to make the difference in 2018. Only a newly-empowered progressive leadership in the House and Senate can restrain Trump.
Dig deeply now and donate generously to help PDA elect progressives to Congress.Joining the Win 2018 Sustainer Team at $20.18 per month or giving any amount will help us find and support the next generation of Progressive champions. You’ll barely notice $20.18 (or any amount) per month. Whatever you can afford to give, that regular contribution will make all the difference!
