This Sunday: Marianne Williamson, Democratic Presidential Candidate. RSVP Now!
Democratic Presidential Candidate Marianne Williamson is the featured guest at PDA’s weekly Town Hall on Sunday at 4pm ET/1pm PT. We expect an overflow crowd. RSVP Now!
In 2016, the best-selling author was a vocal supporter of Bernie Sanders for President. Then, in 2020, she ran for President alongside Bernie until, the day after Bernie’s win in the Nevada Caucus, she flew to her home state of Texas to join Bernie on stage and give him a rousing endorsement. Now, she’s running again—the first Democrat to announce their candidacy.
In some quarters, it is controversial for any political organization to host a candidate running against an incumbent from their party. We, at PDA, feel differently. Indeed, in late 2019, after we had already endorsed Bernie for President, we welcomed a rival candidate, none other than Marianne Williamson, to be a guest at a PDA Town Hall. That’s what we do at PDA: we provide a platform for progressive Democrats.
We understand that the best path to victory for the Democratic Party is to embrace its progressive base. To do the opposite and shun the progressive left, and candidates like Marianne Williamson (who is already gaining traction among young voters), is a recipe for disaster for the Democratic Party.
I have no doubts this is going to be a memorable Town Hall. By everyone’s admission, Marianne Williamson is a brilliant communicator. In this campaign, like the last one, and back in 2016, her message is a no-holds-barred progressive message.

P.S. For anyone wondering, PDA is many months away from commencing its Presidential endorsement process for 2024.
