Much Done, and Much More to Do:
Here’s How We Can All Help Bring Home Wins


We’ve been working hard for our endorsed progressive candidates with primaries and were glad to see all of our Progressive Caucus members are moving on to November, with an interesting development percolating in OH-10 with first-time candidate and Medicare for All activist Amy Cox bringing in a dominating win in a multi-candidate field. We’re now organizing aggressively to secure Rep. Summer Lee’s defense of her seat in PA-12.

Our Congressional Liaisons participated in a big push around the rollout of Rep. Jayapal’s bill, Housing is A Human Right (H.R. 1978) and Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal for Public Housing. Both bills directly address perhaps the most pressing concern facing American households: the cost of housing and the related crisis of homelessness.

We’ll continue promoting our 21st-Century Economic Bill of Rights, and the coalition efforts attached to the Rural New Deal.

And of course, we’ll continue working towards peace, social, economic, racial, and environmental justice, as we do every week at PDA.

We have a packed week before us, and we hope you’ll join us in our actions!

Just an hour here or there can make a real difference when it’s focused on a productive goal.

Please pick one or more of these actions/projects, and let’s make some noise together!

1) Progressive Virtual Town Hall Sunday: Defeating Trumpists with Progressive Candidates and Policy Positions. We’ll be joined by the great Arizona-based activist Erika Andiola, who will offer her analysis of current border and immigration issues, as well as by Anthony Flaccavento, the co-author of The Rural New Deal to explain why he feels the authors of the current best-selling book Rural White Rage get it all wrong. You’ll leave energized, organized, and definitely more hopeful. We hope you’ll join us

2) Join the National Phone Team. Sign up with this juggernaut and make a real difference an hour here, an hour there, on your schedule. Sign up here, let us know what day you can set an hour aside, and we’ll get you cookin’ calling fellow PDA folks. We’ll make sure you’re doing something easy but productive!

3) Become a local Congressional Office Liaison. Work with others in your area to promote progressive legislation. Sign up here and we’ll get you all the training you need to be successful.

4) For “Clicktivists”—Sign/Share:

  • Join our Click Brigade if you’re up for quick and easy rapid-response “likes” and shares across a multitude of platforms.

Thanks so much for anything you can do today for all our tomorrows. Let’s get to work!

In solidarity,

Mike Fox for the PDA National Team
