Join Us Sat.: 15th Annual PDSMM/PDA/PDA-CA Award Celebration. Daniel Ellsberg, Ro Khanna and More

Sep 18, 2020

By Alan Minsky, Executive Director – Progressive Democrats of America


Join Daniel Ellsberg, Rep Ro Khanna, Norman Solomon, Jeff Cohen, Jodie Evans, Alan Minsky, Marcy Winograd, and Kwazi Nkumah for The 15th Annual PDSMM/PDA/PDA-CA Award Celebration Sat. Sept 19, 6pm ET/3pm PT.

For 15 years, the Progressive Democrats of the Santa Monica Mountains, a PDA/PDA-CA Chapter has celebrated the organizers, activists and the good progressive work of Californians with an awards ceremony.  The Awards Dinner has been held in the Santa Monica mountains and progressives in or near Los Angeles County have been invited.

This year the celebration will be via Zoom.  The down side is that there obviously won’t be a dinner.  The upside is that you won’t have to make the effort to drive to the event and every Progressive in California is invited!

Please join us on Saturday We envision this as the first of many events we are planning for all California Progressives whether you are member or near a PDA/PDA-CA chapter or not.

Can’t make it Saturday but still want to help us get progressives elected?  Contribute all you can here.
