In The Streets And In Your Seat,
You Can Make A Difference


Here are two ways to help make the world a more progressive place for all.

In the Streets: Join/Host A Voting Rights Rally Near You
The struggle continues as we combat the attack on voting rights from Republican governors, State Houses, and other Trumpists across the country. Thanks to the hyper-conservative Supreme Court of the United States we now have fewer voting guarantees than we had before the Civil Rights Act was signed. Join a massive coalition effort to hold street events nationwide on Constitution Day, September 17th. Let us know if you’ll host or just participate in a local peaceful action. 

In Your Seat: Free Film Tonight
Join us tonight, September 7 at 7pm ET/ 4pm PT for a special screening of Soul of a People, a documentary about the Depression-era Federal Writers Project (FWP). PDA has endorsed H.R.3054, the 21st Century Federal Writers Project Act, introduced by Rep. Ted Lieu, that would revive the FWP for our times, providing a lifeline for writers and investigative journalism across the country. Rep. Ted Lieu will be introducing the film and a panel-discussion will follow the screening. Follow this link to register for freeand share this invitation with your friends! (For more background on the film, go here.) 

Can’t invest hours but still want to help? Contribute all you can right now so we have the resources to bring these campaigns to life.

Thanks so much for anything you can do, wherever you can do it.
