The Week That Was
By Donna Smith, Executive Director – Progressive Democrats of America
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was founded in 2004 to uphold several basic principles—that every person deserves full equality, respect and decency—including a government and society dedicated to protecting all of our basic human rights. This past week, we’ve been mobilizing to rein in Trump and his MAGA Cult.
Trumponomics are failing. The GOP is taking aim at Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. One ardent Trump suppprter responded to Trump’s reckless statements with terrorist acts. While extremist Republicans incite violence, PDA is organizing for peace and progress. We must vote ALL of the GOP cult leaders out of office on Election Day!
Our adversaries have billionaire and big corporate backers. We have you! Progress requires sustained, ongoing commitment. Your monthly donation of $500, $100, $50, $10, or $5 will provide us with the resources we need to elect strong progressives and to continue mobilizing to protect our basic human rights. Money tight? Join the PDA Phone Team making easy, effective calls from your own home with Mike “Phone Guy” Fox. We need you to step up now! Unless Democrats win control of the House, the Senate, or both, the Trumpublicans will run amok.
Election Day is just a few weeks away. With your help, our endorsed progressive candidates can win! We need you right now. Unless we take back Congress, we will all suffer, and the most vulnerable among us will be devastated. The Trumpublicans are targeting us with violence! Unless we mobilize to stop them on Election Day, their attacks will increase. We need you to sustain our mobilization now! Your monthly donation of $50, $20, $10, or $5 will provide us with the resources we need to make a true blue wave sweep through Congress.
Time is running out! Early voting is underway in some states. We must all dig deep and give of our time and money from now until Election Day November 6th. Pitch in $1,000, 100, or $10 now, and if you can afford to commit to the movement, make your gift regularly recurring each month. Win or lose in the midterms, PDA is in this struggle for the long haul. The day after Election Day, we will rename our Action Fund “Win 2020.” To create momentum for the presidential election, we need your sustaining support right now! Pitch in $1000, $100, $10, or whatever you can afford to support our organizing.
