Countdown To Election Day
By Debra Schrishuhn for Mike F., Bryan, Kim, Dr. Bill, Dan, Janis, Shayna, Mike H, Donna, and Judy—your PDA National Team
Election Day is barely eight weeks away. We don’t have time to let Trump distract us with his bizarre antics and boorish insults. Every week the news grows more outrageous, the President’s claims and demands grow more outlandish, and progressive candidates are outspent by big corporate and billionaire backed candidates that want to frustrate and roll back hard-won progress.
We founded Progressive Democrats of America almost exactly 14 years ago today to build a progressive majority. To help accomplish that goal, we have endorsed several progressive champions. We need your help and support right now to get every one of them elected. Your monthly donation of $50, $20, $10, or $5 will provide us with the resources we need to make a true blue wave sweep through Congress.
On November 6, by working together, we can elect a powerful progressive Democratic Houseand a strong Democratic Senate to reverse and the Trumpublicans’ horrible policies and start to restore basic decency and mutual respect.
I think we all agree that that it’s not enough to vote. To achieve the progress we need, we must organize in every state, in every Congressional district, and in every precinct. All that takes planning and resources. Help us by becoming a monthly sustainer. Make your dollars holler and help us amplify our progressive message during in these next critical weeks.
As our Executive Director Mike Fox says, “PDA doesn’t take big fat checks from big corporations. We don’t hang out at the club with billionaires. We have each other in this struggle. And we count on progressives like you to keep the lights on.”
To defeat TrumpCo we need resources. We need 100 new Change Makes Change sustaining partners today, to help us fund our nation-wide field operation. We need to buy and distribute materials like rally signs and stickers. We need to hire a few more staffers. We need to buy pizza and pay expenses to keep our hard working volunteers organizing at full capacity. We promise we will make the best possible use of every single penny to elect every single endorsed candidate.
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 goal.
