Rashida Tlaib Is Under Attack; We Have Her Back
For Progressive Victories, Alan Minsky for Mike F., Mike H., Janis, Deb, Dan, Kim, Bryan, Dr. Bill, and Donna—your PDA National Team
Rashida Tlaib is a member of “The Squad,” a no-holds-barred progressive champion, and a true American hero for the 21st Century. She understands the changes we need, and pulls no punches in demanding we make those changes!
That’s why I’m hosting a fundraiser for her in Los Angeles this Sunday morning. Click Here for tickets, and contact me if you can make it. If you can’t join us in L.A., please pitch in with a solidarity donation to support Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and Rashida.
PDA only endorses empowered, courageous progressives, and we’ve endorsed Rashida Tlaib twice. Once for her initial campaign for Congress in 2018, and now for her re-election.
Simply put, this is the single most important Congressional primary race in the country for progressives. Corporatists, neoliberals, and neocons have targeted Rashida for defeat. We progressives must have her back!
There is no greater advocate for the Green New Deal, Criminal Justice Reform, Medicare-for-All, Immigration Rights, Human Rights—in fact, the entire progressive agenda—than Rashida Tlaib.
Rashida faces one of the most difficult primary races of any incumbent in Congress. Her moderate opponent—who Rashida barely beat for the nomination in 2018–is trying to buy the seat by raising an avalanche of money from conservative sources (notably including AIPAC).
The right wing wants nothing more than to defeat one of the new icons of an ascendant left in their endless effort to silence our voices. All the more so because Rashida is perhaps the bravest advocate for Palestinian human rights in the history of the US Congress.
The right-wing operatives targeting Rashida are not fools. They know that defeating her would deliver a terrible blow to the progressive cause, and would send a chilling signal to other progressives: either fall in line or else be defeated. We cannot let that happen!
PDA proudly supports Rashida, and we are working hard for her re-election. We need her powerful, principled, progressive voice in Congress. Please support Rashida’s campaign and PDA’s efforts on her behalf by Donating, and/or Volunteering to help her win.
P.S. We’re here to help you make progress in your state and locality! If you need help organizing a new PDA chapter or energizing your existing chapter, please contact PDA Field Coordinator Dan O’Neal. Join the PDA Phone Team making easy, effective calls from your own home with Mike “Phone Guy” Fox.
