Take These Three Essential Steps to Turn Our Country Around

Oct 4, 2020

Our future depends on you.

Debra Schrishuhn for the PDA National Team

Let’s be clear– we have 30 days to begin turning our country around. It’s a hard job—as hard as 1, 2, 3—and in this, we are all essential workers.

Step 1: Make sure you vote—for progressives where possible, and against all complicit Trumpublicans—and urge your like-minded friends and family to vote as well. Click here for voter information and deadlines.

Step 2: Help PDA make a difference in close races. It’s not enough to elect Democrats. These times call for bold and decisive progressive leadership. PDA has endorsed more progressives than ever in 2020, and we are committed to electing every one of them. We need resources: volunteers and sustained donations.

Step 3: After the election, our real work—holding elected officials accountable and advancing progressive policies—begins anew. The Trump administration has wrought havoc with the core fabric of American democracy, caused more than 209,000 deaths from a poorly managed response to COVID-19, left millions of people out of work or without food and shelter security, allowed gun violence and systemic racism to spread unchecked, shredded our environmental policies and safety nets, harassed and degraded immigrants and asylum seekers, torn families apart, emboldened authoritarian regimes around the world, increased wealth inequality, and fostered intolerance and incivility at every opportunity.

Your monthly donation of $50, $20, $10, or $5 is essential to our work now and in the future. Please take these three essential steps today to turn our country around: vote, volunteer, and donate monthly to PDA.
