PDA Makes Sure Your Voice Is Heard

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) invests in the latest technologies to make it easy for you to contact Congress, and help build progressive movement. This past week, we helped mobilize support for Medicare For All and the Inclusive Prosperity Act (Robin Hood Tax), and we’re working to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) across the USA and in D.C. to put an end to the War On Women. This week, we invite you to contact Congress on several critically important issues.

SIGN THE PETITION: HOLD BIG PHARMA ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC: It’s appalling. Big pharmaceutical companies make obscene profits selling opioids, while tens of thousands of Americans die of overdoses every year. Click Here to tell Congress to address this public health crises.

TELL CONGRESS: PASS LEGISLATION TO PROTECT REPRODUCTIVE CHOICE: Extremist politicians have been waiting for an opportunity to undermine Roe v. Wade since it was decided in 1973.

Trump vetoed a joint congressional resolution that would end U.S. support for Saudi war crimes in Yemen. The resolution was authored by Senator Bernie Sanders in the Senate and Representative Ro Khanna in the House. PDA supported this effort to reassert Congressional constitutional authority over war and peace, and especially to end the humanitarian crisis in Yemen.
