Help Us Support Our Awesome Nationally-Endorsed Congressional Candidates

 

While most of the buzz this election cycle has been about presidential candidates — and we must defeat Trump in November — we’re not only going to need a healthy increase in the number of progressives in Congress, but our push in their districts will also help drive out vote for the top of the ticket in the process.

Just like we did with Marie Newman in IL-03, we must do all we can to make sure these great progressives win over DINO incumbents in districts that are solid for Dems.

Dr. Arati Kreibich is a Democratic Councilmember in Glen Rock, NJ, a neuroscientist, and a mom. She immigrated to the U.S. when she was 11 years old with her parents and two younger brothers because they believed in the promise of America.  She is 100% solid on our issues like Expanded And Improved Medicare For All, the Green New Deal, social, economic and racial justice, peace, and and fair taxation and the removal of the influence of big money in our democracy. Her opponent is a DINO incumbent in NJ-05 that must go.  Donate or volunteer now.

We’ll be having a Virtual Town Hall with Arati on Tuesday, May 26, at 9pm Eastern.  RSVP here if you’d like to attend.

Zina Spezakis is a single mother of two, and a daughter of hard working Greek immigrants who built a successful deli from the ground up.  After attaining her Masters Degree, Zina spent nearly two decades on Wall Street, at one point working as a Managing Director at Allianz Global Investors. She’s seen the beast from the inside, and is now committing her life to making the world a better place by not only reining in Wall Street, but also by investing her considerable skills into combating the Climate Emergency.  She also scores 100% on all of our other issues, and her incumbent opponent in NJ-09 likewise has to go.  Donate or volunteer now.

We’ll also be having a Virtual Town Hall with Zina, on Thursday, May 28 at 9pm Eastern.  If you’d like to get updates once that’s decided, please let me know.

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.
