This Sunday: Virtual town hall featuring Congressional Candidate Qasim Rashid. RSVP now!

Mar 8, 2024 | PDA News

Join us this Sunday at 4pm ET/1pm PT for PDA-endorsed Congressional candidate Qasim Rashid,  challenging “moderate” incumbent Bill Foster in the March 19 primary.  RSVP Now!


Primary season is upon us. In less than two weeks, no fewer than five PDA-endorsed Congressional candidates are running in Illinois’ primary.  Three of these are running unopposed: Jan Schakowsky, Delia Ramirez, and Jonathan Jackson. A fourth incumbent, Jesus ‘Chuy” Garcia, is facing a conservative challenger and we’re all-in for Chuy!

PDA’s one non-incumbent endorsed candidate is Qasim Rashid (IL-11), who is our featured guest on this week’s Town Hall. Rashid, a human rights lawyer, is an across-the-board PDA progressive.  Also, in contrast to Foster, he supports a permanent ceasefire in Gaza. He puts the climate crisis, human rights, and guaranteed healthcare front and center in his campaign.

In a recent debate with Foster, Rashid re-iterated a main theme of his campaign, saying that Foster is simply out of touch with current Democratic values.

Come meet Qasim this Sunday.  RSVP now!

We hope to see you.

In solidarity,

Alan Minsky for the PDA National Team
