Progress Requires Commitment
By Donna Smith, Executive Director – Progressive Democrats of America
Progressive Democrats has been among the first national progressive organizations mobilizing on the issues you care about. Every news cycle, sensational headlines and outrageous acts of anti-democratic behavior from elected officials drown out serious damage being done to our judicial, regulatory, and legislative infrastructure by this lawless and corrupt administration. We need your monthly donation of $50, $20.18, $10, or $5 to help us budget our resources and fight for justice and progressive values.
Progressive Democrats of America responds to the crisis of the moment—like blocking temperamentally, ethically, and morally unfit Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed on the Supreme Court. We also work inside and outside the Democratic Party to advance progressive legislation and oppose dismantling of sound policies already in place. Your monthly donation of $50, $20.18, $10, or $5 will provide us with the resources we need to make a true blue wave sweep through Congress.
We remember that Hurricane Florence, which has faded from headlines in just two weeks, is still flooding the Carolinas. Swarming floodwater mosquitos are now spreading disease amid the extensive destruction. More than a million people had to evacuate their homes, facing months or years of recovery efforts.
Puerto Rico is still suffering massive power shortages, inadequate clean drinking water, and loss of infrastructure over a year after Hurricane Maria. Congress must respond with robust and sustained support and resources. To keep PDA working for you, we need resources too. Become one of 100 new Change Makes Change sustaining partners today.
More than two months after a court-imposed deadline for family reunification, over 130 immigrant children remain separated from their parents, many of whom were summarily deported without their kids. Recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), remain in legislative limbo a year after Trump tried to end the program. And on and on and on….
PDA is at the forefront, demanding that elected officials act responsibly. If you can give $5 per month, that’s great! $10? Wonderful! $25? Spectacular! Thanks so much for anything you can do right now to help us reach our magic 100 goal.
Election Day is only 38 days away, and we are redoubling efforts to ensure that the 116th Congress includes returning progressive champions Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, and Raul Grijalva, as well as new faces like Kevin De Leon, Randy Brice, Rashida Tlaib, and Harley Rouda. Help us stop Kavanaugh, demand justice for storm victims and immigrant children, and put solid progressives in the halls of Congress. We are in a long battle for fairness and human dignity, and your monthly support keeps us on track to success.
For a more progressive future,
Debra Schrishuhn for Alan, Mike F., Dr. Bill, Janis, Dan, Kimberly, Bryan, Shayna and Mike H.—Your PDA National Team
