We run Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) frugally, efficiently, and effectively. We literally make every penny count. PDA offers many benefits like free to use action alerts, free events, Educate Congress letters for you to use, and organizing calls. We’ve been cranking on getting out the vote for progressives in Florida and Virginia, and organizing on the ground from coast to coast for real progress. We need to be ready for the midterms just about one year from today!
We don’t spend money on fancy offices or first class air fare. We organize from home offices, and often crash on couches when we travel. It’s part of our organization’s culture, and we’re proud that we put our money into organizing, not frills. The savings add up over time. And we also respect and depend upon the regular influx of small dollar donations to keep the lights on.
With this in mind, we’re trying to bring on 100 new Change Makes Change partners to help us support great progressive candidates like Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and Representatives John Conyers, 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 other champions for the people. Please click here and help us get to our goal. Your $5, $10, $20, per month will add up to make a big difference.
