The Week That Was

May 6, 2018

By  Mike Hersh for Judy, Donna, Mike F., Dr. Bill, Kim, Janis, Deb, Dan, and Bryan—Your Progressive Democrats of America National Team

Support Progress

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was founded in 2004 to make progress on the issues that matter to you. This past week, we’ve organized in support of progressive candidates, stood up for the environment and the climate against Trump and Scott Pruitt, demanded Net Neutrality, called on Congress to make peace—not war, and much more. We also held organizing calls, and promoted actions with other organizations. To keep it up, we need your help! Please pitch in to show solidarity with PDA.

Senate Vote Expected This Week
Tell Congress: Protect The Internet

Demand Internet Freedom


As the FCC’s scheme to let your Internet Service Provider (ISP) determine which websites you can visit, jack up your rates, slow down certain websites, and otherwise dictate what you can do online, Congress is our last hope. Please click here to tell Congress: We Demand Internet Freedom! Then, please pitch in to support PDA’s Organizing.

PDA was instrumental in the early work around the Off Fossil Fuels for a Better Future Act (OFF) Act, working with lead sponsor Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. When the OFF Act becomes law, we will aggressively move toward 100 percent renewable energy sources by 2035. Please tell your Representative to cosponsor the OFF Act. Then, please pitch in to support PDA’s Stop Global Warming Efforts by check or card.

Money short? Then please support our work with your time and effort. Make easy. effective calls from your own home to help elect candidates, and make progress. Mike “Phone Guy” Fox will show you how.

Join us telling Congress to end and prevent war, guarantee equal rights, protect our climate and environment, champion healthcare as a human right, impeach Trump, and stand up for the DREAMers. Also, urge Bernie Sanders to run for president and suggest who he should pick as his running mate. Please use our updated alert to prevent all-out war in Syria.
