PDA Weekly Review and Preview for 9-3-22

Sep 3, 2022 | PDA News

In solidarity,
Mike Fox for the PDA National Team


Much Done, and Much More to Do:
Here’s How You Can Help Us Win this Week


We were thrilled to see Sarah Palin fail in her attempt to secure a seat in Congress—especially since Mary Peltola is the first Indigenous person to hold that seat and a Democrat! We’ve been working to help progressives win their primaries across the country. From fresh new faces like Maxwell Frost in Florida, to Squad Members like Cori Bush and Rashida Tlaib, we’ve helped secure important wins, and will continue to do so through November.

We’ll also continue working to combat the Climate Emergency, champion Expanded and Improved Medicare for All, support economic justice via the 21st-Century Economic Bill of Rights, promote peace worldwide and at home, stand to codify a woman’s right to control her own body, and strongly defend our democracy from Trumpist authoritarian attempts dismantle it.

Join PDA activists nationwide, in every state of the Union, as we show solidarity with each other and our community as a whole to make the world a better place for all.

Pick one or more of these actions/projects, and let’s make some noise together. We need you in the game today!
