By Mike Hersh for Mike F., Donna, Judy, Dr. Bill, Janis, Dan, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, and Shayna—Your PDA National Team
This week, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) celebrated major progress in our drive to make the Democratic Party more democratic. We joined with our coalition partners including Roots Action, Our Revolution and many others at the DNC meetings in Chicago. We also welcomed Senator Elizabeth Warren to an informative, inspiring conference call. You can hear it here. Note: keep the browser window open while listening, and if the playback stalls please restart and slide the counter ahead if necessary.
We also learned about even more outrages by the Trumpublicans, including endangering lives at the border and across the nation with heartless, ignorant immigration and Internet policies. PDA is gearing up with our close allies National Nurses United (NNU) and Food & Water Watch (FWW) calling on all members of the House to support our scorecard pushing for important legislation on healthcare, the environment, the economy, and more.
Tell Congress prevent Trump from abusing pardon powers
Tell your Representative to support the People’s Budget
We’re mobilizing within a massive movement putting pressure on Congress to abolish ICE, and to defend Internet Freedom. We’ve also part of a coalition working to free journalist Manuel Duran Ortega. We’re organizing in support of the DNC reform proposals with progressives around the country to make the Democratic Party much more democratic.
