In solidarity, Mike Fox for the PDA National Team

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


We’ve been fighting for a federal reconciliation bill that is maximally robust with expanded Medicare benefits, standing for the passage of the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (vote expected next week), along with 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.
