Never Stop, Never Slow Down, Never Give Up
In solidarity and unwavering commitment,
Debra Schrishuhn for the PDA National Team
Been a busy week, and it’s only Wednesday.
We have a climate crisis, and a healthcare crisis, and a gun violence crisis, and an immigration crisis, and a homelessness crisis. We have a crook and would-be fascist for an ex-President who plotted actively to overturn a free and fair election to stay in power, and who has thus far evaded any criminal liability. We have a political party without governing principles other than staying in power through minority rule that aided and abetted said crook and would-be fascist, and that is poised to take control of at least one House of Congress in November, ensuring absolutely no progress on the above-mentioned crises until 2025 at the earliest.
We have a Democratic Party that is seemingly paralyzed to the point of inaction, not least by some of its own short-sighted members, and we have Democratic voters who won’t vote in primaries or the general election because they are disappointed, disillusioned, disincentivized, or disenfranchised.
What can we—you and I—do against all of these obstacles and roadblocks to progressive policies that would actually help people and alleviate existential crises?
We must take concrete action now, tomorrow, and the next day, and the days after that.
- If you live in a state that has an upcoming primary, vote and volunteer for the most progressive candidates on the ballot. We’ll get you started.
- If your state’s primary is over, work for progressive candidates on the November ballot, and help progressive candidates with primaries still to come. Here’s our roster of endorsees for the House and Senate.
- Become a Congressional Office Liaison, and advocate for progressive policies with your legislators, as part of a nationwide coordinated effort.
Progressive Democrats of America gets a lot done with minimal resources because we never stop, never slow down, never give up. We focus on our electoral and policy priorities 24/7, 365 days a year. And with your help—ONLY with your help—we will prevail. Do something..
Right now, every day, do something alongside your PDA brothers and sisters. Make a phone call, send an email, register voters, talk to neighbors and friends, advocate for progressive policies and hold elected officials accountable. Today.
