Critically Important Work Continues: Here’s How You Can Help this Week


We’re proud that our sister organization PDA-CA was in there swinging to help the defeat of the recall of Gavin Newsom this past week, along with our efforts to generate participation in Finish the Job rallies across the country to support the Freedom to Vote Act.

We’ve also been fighting for a reconciliation bill that is maximally robust with expanded Medicare benefits, supporting prosecution of Jan. 6th insurrectionists, and working for justice for Afghan refugees.

Join us as we keep putting one foot in front of the other, getting closer to our goal of a more progressive world for all.


  • Help make the country healthier.

  • Join the National Phone Team. Make easy calls from home to fellow PDA folks to ensure they’re in the know about important actions and candidates. We work 7 days a week, so whenever is good for you is good for us. Click here to join.
  • For “Clicktivists”: Sign and share this petition to help Afghan refugees and provide humanitarian aid in-county. Sign to end the filibuster. Contact your Senators and tell them to expand Medicare coverage, invest in clean energy and infrastructure, and follow Bernie’s lead in the upcoming massive reconciliation bill. Also, tell them to pass the Freedom to Vote Act, and to find a way around the filibuster if need be.

Then please let us know if you act.
