Help PDA Spread Progressive Politics to Every Congressional District in the Country

PDA is a Model Civic Organization for a Representative Democracy. Exactly what we need in 21st Century America. Join with us Today.


PDA is unique among all progressive organizations in the country because we practice what people are supposed to do in a healthy democracy; but which is almost non-existent in contemporary America.

How so? We have chapters across the country, in which people meet to discuss how they can hold their elected representatives accountable. Then, we petition those representatives.  That is civics lesson # 1 in a representative democracy like the United States – and elected officials acknowledge that nothing influences them like hearing from actual constituents.

Yet, no other progressive organization engages in this simple, and essential, practice like PDA.

However, we are not yet where we want, and need, to be: in every congressional district in the country. We want progressives to form PDA chapters in every nook and cranny across the USA. The 2022 primary election season confirmed what learned from the 2016 and 2020 Sanders campaigns: there are millions of progressives out there; and that they are passionate. Furthermore, polls show that on issue after issue the public continues to agree with progressives on the major political issues of our time.

Still, we need people from every constituency in the land to remind their elected representatives, and their fellow citizens, what people want and expect from their government. It’s the missing piece of the puzzle.  That’s where PDA comes in.

So, what will it take for PDA to achieve that goal? We need the resources to organize nationally; and we need to know there’s continuing support for those resources.

Just like a subscription service, we run on monthly sustaining donations. Consider us a Netflix for Democracy, if you like, and sign up for a monthly donation – only, unlike Netflix, you can choose the size of the donation!  Become a PDA sustainer and together we will strengthen our democracy and society.
