Help Samelys Lopez win with a donation and / or phone calls

Help Jamaal Bowman win with a donation and / or phone calls


Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is proud to endorse two progressive New Yorkers: Jamaal Bowman (NY-16) and Samelys Lopez (NY-15) for Congress.

On June 26, 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pulled off one of the greatest upset victories in American political history defeating 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary race for New York’s 14th congressional district. AOC’s victory was a high point for the contemporary progressive movement.

On June 23, 2020, we have a rare opportunity to win with two brilliant progressive candidates, running in neighboring congressional districts. Samelys Lopez in NY-15 and Jamaal Bowman in NY-16 have a real chance of joining AOC in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Jamaal is running against 16-term incumbent Eliot Engel, one of the staunchest foreign policy hawks in the Democratic caucus. Jamaal is as progressive on foreign policy matters as he is on domestic issues. He champions PDA’s priorities. Please join us supporting Jamaal Bowman with a donation and / or make phone calls.

Jamaal and Samelys Lopez are so in sync that they just did an event together last night. Indeed, just like Jamaal, Samelys lines up perfectly with PDA on the issues. One difference is that Samelys is running for an open seat, after the retirement of Rep. Jose Serrano.

There are a lot of candidates running in the 15th, but progressives have consolidated behind Lopez, and she has a great shot at winning. Please support Samelys Lopez with a donation and / or make phone calls.

New York City produced a magic moment for progressives two years ago. With your help, we can win with two great progressives on June 23rd!


P.S.: We need your sustained, monthly donations to elect Progressive Democrats to Congress.

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.
