Trump is Gone, but His Toxic Legacy Remains

Trump may be currently out of the national spotlight, but his toxic legacy is being carried forward by Republicans at every level of government and the right-wing “news”/propaganda machine. Anti-voting, anti-gun safety, anti-LGBTQ+ (concentrating on trans teens as the new scare tactic in culture wars), anti-free speech and free assembly, and anti-abortion laws are being written and passed in state legislatures with dizzying speed. Conspiracy theories swirl around not just Democrats, but around any Republican office-holder deemed insufficiently loyal to the Trumpian mythos.

As much as we want to move on from the nightmare of the past four years, Trump loyalists are trying to drag the country back to a white supremacist fever dream.

We at PDA reject these attempts with actions, urging lawmakers to enact progressive policy, and by supporting courageous progressive candidates for Congress. The urgency to act now on many fronts remains and we need steady resources to maintain and expand our efforts. Your monthly gift of $25, $22, $12, or $5 per month keeps us going strong.

PDA gets no support from deep-pocketed oligarchs and billionaires. Your generous donations fund our activities, day in and day out. We depend on you and we thank you for anything you can do.
