Help Us Turn A Blue District DEEPER Blue With Jim Harper. Town Hall Thurs. Join Us!

May 19, 2020

In solidarity,

Mike Fox for Alan, Mike H., Donna, Dr. Bill, Dan, Janis, Kim, Deb, and Bryan — your PDA National Team

 

Time For IN-01 To Have Representation That Reflects The District.  Out With The DINO, In With The Progressive! 

 

IN-01 — a solid blue district — has been held captive for years by Peter Vislosky, a DINO who has consistently voted to the right of his constituents.

Good news: Vislosky is retiring.

More good news:  We can replace him with an inspirational progressive in Jim Harper.

Jim’s an attorney who in addition to his private practice work co-founded a national non-profit law firm that has represented hundreds of veterans seeking disability benefits for injuries they sustained during their service. His pro bono work includes working as co-counsel in a case challenging Indiana’s continued use of voting machines without a voter-verified paper trail. Jim also serves on the board of Hilltop House, a Valparaiso non-profit that provides early-childhood education and other services to Porter County families.

Not only does he shine for his philanthropic endeavors, his policy stances are right with us on Medicare For All, the Green New Deal, peace, social, economic, and racial justice, and tax policies that make sure the wealthy not only pay their fair share, but also that their influence on our democracy be combatted.

Get to know Jim better at our national Virtual Town Hall.

PDA/Jim Harper For Congress Virtual Town Hall

Can’t Volunteer?  Please toss in what you can to help bring home the victory.

We are in serious need of an unwavering advocate who will stand up to big money interests and fight — and we mean fight — for his constituents and us all.  There’s no question Jim will be that kind of US House Rep.

Thanks so much for anything you can do to help bring this victory home.

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.
