PDA Keeps Its Eyes on the Prize

We are in the midst of one of the most significant midterm elections in U.S. history. Donald Trump’s election and presidency represents the greatest threat to America’s democratic values in our lifetime. If the GOP maintains its control over both houses of Congress, there’s little doubt that Trump and his pro-authoritarian base will feel empowered. We at PDA are doing everything we can to prevent that result. In the short term, that means all hands on deck to defeat the GOP in the House and the Senate; and delver victories for exciting new progressive candidates.

In the long term, Progressive Democrats of America understands that the way to re-invigorate American democracy is through a Democratic Party fully committed to the welfare of every American, the vast majority of whom are either poor, working class or members of the precarious middle class. PDA was the first national organization to call upon Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to run for President because we understood that Bernie has fought for the average working person his entire life. Lo and behold, the Sanders campaign engendered an enthusiasm for progressive politics unseen in America for decades; as millions of people responded to a set of policy proposals that actually addressed the concerns they faced on a daily basis.

We, at PDA, never lose sight of this bigger picture. We believe that progressive politics can and will win; and when they do the resulting policies will be embraced by the American people.

Buoyed by this conviction, no one works harder than PDA’s membership and staff when we’re in the homestretch of an election: setting up and populating phone banks; walking precincts; doing all that needs to be done to support campaigns!  Of course, after Nov. 6th, we’ll keep working for progressive change every minute of every hour of every day, year in and year out.

Your monthly donation of $20.18, $12, $10, or $5 gives us the consistent, ongoing resources to keep up the fight for fairness and the triumph of dignity and humanity over profit and greed. It’s your support that allows us to keep fighting the good fight, to maintain progressive momentum and re-invigorate the Democratic Party.
