Automatic Monthly Gifts Or A One-Time Donation


I just got off the phone with Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) Executive Director Alan Minsky who is in Iowa. He’ll be there through Monday’s Caucuses, canvassing and making calls for Bernie Sanders. Bernie is polling well and has a good chance to win in Iowa, but anything can happen! We need to have a strong showing to keep our #NotMeUs movement growing.

If you’re in Iowa or can get there—or if you can make Get Out The Vote (GOTV) calls from your own home—please Volunteer For Bernie. No time to volunteer? Then please Pitch In to help PDA do all we can to help Bernie win this Monday, throughout the primaries, and in the general election in November.

If you agree with PDA and Bernie that we need fundamental, systemic reform—not more business as usual—then please pitch in automatically every month to help empower our We Want Bernie efforts and expand the progressive movement.

Not supporting Bernie for President? No worries, let Mike Fox know. He’ll get you active with our organizing for a Progressive Congressional Wave.

PDA launched our “Run Bernie Run” campaign in 2014, including a massive petition drive and events all around the nation with one purpose: to overcome Bernie’s reluctance to run. In a very real sense, PDA persuaded Bernie to run for president—and without us he might have never jumped in. PDA also encourages progressive champions to run for the House and Senate.

If you understand how important PDA has been to building our movement and empowering progressives, then please show your support now—on the eve of the Iowa Caucuses—with a sustaining automatic monthly donation.

On Monday, the presidential primaries begin. We need your time and effort as well as your generous support so we can plan, budget, and expand our activism. Are you in this struggle for the long haul? If so, please pitch in by making automatic donations every month!

PDA will step up our activism on your behalf during this most critically important election cycle. We sent Alan to Iowa, and we’re mobilizing in other early and later primary states, but we can’t do anything without you. Now is the time to invest in our We Want Bernie campaign with a one-time donation or automatic sustainer donations!
