Pitch In Time And/Or Money To Help Us Win

 

Since our first day of operations in 2004 we’ve been supporting the most progressive candidates in US House races.

From long-term progressive champions like Reps. Barbara Lee, Raul Grijalva, and Mark Pocan, to the newcomers like the Squad, we’ve been proud to help elect true fighters for our issues.

Today we feature a few potential new additions to Congress in November.

 

Alex Morse is an exceptionally strong progressive standing up against a man who represents everything that’s wrong with the current system: Richie Neal in MA-01.  Neal has been the Representative for that district since 1989 and has built the reputation as one of the more aloof members of Congress — rarely holding town halls — and rarely supporting our progressive legislation.  (Example: He is not with us on Expanded And Improved Medicare For All, nor the Green New Deal.)  Alex will indeed be a breath of fresh air if he takes this seat.  Contribute.  Volunteer.

Former Flagstaff, AZ City Council member and long-time PDA activist Eva Putzova is running a strong, progressive campaign in AZ-01 against long-time DINO Tom O’Halleran.  O’Halleran is famous for voting far to the right of his district, and Eva scores a perfect 100% on all of our progressive issues.  Contribute.  Volunteer.

Mike Siegel’s campaign made national headlines when his campaign manager was arrested fighting for an under-served black community’s right to vote.  Mike fought the arrest and the voter suppression in TX-10, and won!  He also came within 4% of flipping the seat in 2018, and is well positioned to bring home the victory in 2020.  Mike has shown he isn’t afraid of taking off the gloves and fighting hard for his neighbors in TX-10, and he’ll put that same passion into fighting for our issues once in Washington.  Contribute.  Volunteer.

Kara Eastman came within 2 points of flipping NE-02 in 2018, and is back and better than ever.  Her success drew Democratic competition from the right, so we need to make sure she dominates her primary on May 12.  Her outstanding support for Expanded And Improved Medicare For All, the Green New Deal, and other PDA issues will make her a wonderful ally in Congress.  Contribute.  Volunteer.

Thanks so much for anything you can do for these great candidates.

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.
