Help Sustain Our Struggle For Survival

Mar 29, 2020


Mike Hersh and Dr. Bill Honigman for Alan, Mike F., Dan, Donna, Janis, Deb, Bryan, and Kimberly—Your PDA National Team


All of us are making adjustments during these difficult times
We need your sustained financial support to help us mobilize
For effective COVID-19 responses and for Medicare For All


Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) remains hard at work on your behalf. As the recently-passed, grossly inadequate COVID-19 emergency legislation clearly shows, we progressives must dramatically increase our role in shaping public policy ASAP.

To keep up the fight, we need your sustaining support right now! We’re constrained by the pandemic, and cannot use face-to-face or group gatherings. Instead, we must invest in more comprehensive and more expensive online organizing tools.

Our monthly expenses are going up, even as fundraising is more difficult during this COVID-19 Pandemic. Ironically, our needs for your help are increasing even as we focus on demanding much better policy responses from elected officials. These include specific steps to contain the virus, protect healthcare professionals and patients, and respond to the massive economic hardships most of us are already facing.


Pitch In Each Month to Support Organizing
to Protect At-Risk Healthcare Professionals


Protect Our Healthcare Professionals! Make Mobilization Calls
To Support the COVID-19 Health Care Worker Protection Act


If you appreciate the hard work PDA does to help mobilize support for effective, science-based, and equitable emergency COVID-19 response—as well as Medicare For All, the Green New Deal, peace, social and economic justice, secure and fair voting, ending corporate rule, addressing the Climate Emergency, fully cancelling student debt, and more—please pitch in $5, $50, or more if you can each month.

Our dear friend, colleague, and coalition partner Chuck Pennacchio said, “PDA’s focused leadership is vital in this time of urgency and uncertainty. No organization with which I am familiar does more with less than PDA.”

We deeply appreciate everything Chuck does as a convener and organizer for One Payer States and Medicare For All, especially his invaluable contributions to our regular Healthcare Is A Human Right webinars and our Emergency Healthcare twice-weekly webinars.

In order to continue these webinars, as well as our other socially safe organizing, we need your sustained monthly support. Please pitch in whatever you can afford each month to help PDA fight for you and your loved ones during these challenging times.

The choice is ours. We must act now to protect our future, or we will suffer the consequences. That said, as the massive spending we’re seeing shows, we have more than enough resources to overcome our current challenges and fundamentally reform our society.

We can cope with the pandemic crisis and promote economic and social justice to ensure a high-quality standard of living for all of us. We as progressives will continue mobilizing to make it so.


P.S.: Please remember to RSVP to Mike Fox to join our Healthcare Emergency Virtual Town Hall / Webinar this Wednesday 4-5pm ET, 1-2pm PT. Mike will provide all the call-in information.

Then, join PDA investing to enact Medicare For All and demanding reasonable, effective, and equitable COVID-19 emergency policies.
