Keep Pressuring Congress!
By Donna Smith, Judy Hess and Mike Hersh for for Deb, Janis, Kim, Dan, Dr Bill, Mike F, Amos, and Bryan—your PDA National team
For nearly 10 years PDA activists have done “Letter Drops,” visits to House and Senate offices In Washington, D.C. and around the country. Each month, we deliver letters to our elected officials urging them to cosponsor or oppose legislation. This has been very successful! We’ve gained 100s of cosponsors for progressive measures and helped turn back bad policies like the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Trumpublican Healthcare Cuts.
If you’ve never dropped a letter, this is the month to join our effort! If you are “in”, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add you to our Team! If you can’t drop a letter, pop for $500, $50, or whatever you can to support this important work!

PDA’s Letter Drop Call—December—Won’t you join us?
Where: Your Own Phone Call Number: 641-715-3605 Access Code: 699795#
What We Do—and Why
Dropping the Letter: By the time of the call we have posted a link to the letters for you to download, fill in, and deliver. Once delivered, our Phone Team calls that office to add support and emphasize the importance of this letter. Your drop is again emphasized by our Letter Drop Team on Capitol Hill!
We hand-deliver our monthly PDA Letters to our Representative and/or Senators at their local offices in our city. There’s a new letter every month for House Members and Senators. We highlight certain bills pending in the House or Senate. We are asking our legislators in each body to Co-Sponsor and support them. The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) is very fond of PDA because we have enlisted a large number of co-sponsors for their bills over the years!
How We Do It—It’s Easy!
We add your name to our Letter Droppers list. About the first of the month we email you that we have a Letter Droppers Call. While the call is neither required nor essential for you to be on, it does provide useful information about the bills the letters cover. And you get to hear the voices of other Letter Droppers too!
Our country needs progressive’s voices to be heard loud and clear, because we need these bills to become law. Though Democrats are in the minority now, we build the Co-Sponsor numbers, and we let Republicans know we are watching them – we remind them every single month!
We hope this inspires you to become a PDA Letter Dropper. If you are “in”, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add you to our Team! If you can’t drop a letter, pop for $500, $50, or whatever you can to support this important work!
