Our Field Team Needs More Materials!

Summer is nearly upon us, and that means parades, county and state fairs, and festivals—great opportunities for Progressive Democrats of America to be visible and spread the word about Medicare for All, environmental stewardship, economic and social justice, and LGBTQ rights. As we like to say, “Justice or Bust!”

Locally in Central Illinois, my little red Ford Ranger is known as “the PDA truck”—a fixture in nearly every parade and sighted at farmers’ markets, fairs, rallies, and wherever PDA can help broadcast a message of resistance to unjust policies and project voices of peace, equality, and brother/sisterhood.

But here’s the problem: our activists across the nation are campaigning hard for progressive candidates and progressive policies, and WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF SUPPLIES! We need banners, rally signs, bumper stickers, buttons, and loads of lapel stickers to amplify our message.

We would love to put Healthcare not Warfare, Justice or Bust, or Windmills not Weapons banners in the hands of our 60+ local chapters, but we need to raise $6,000 to place that order.

We would love to order Healthcare not Warfare T-shirts to help the push for universal health care at events throughout the summer, but we need to raise $5,000 to place an order.

Additionally, we would like to print and ship rally signs, bumper stickers, buttons, and lots of lapel stickers to our activists attending Healthcare Now events, Democratic Party gatherings, and all those parades and fairs around the country. And for that we need to raise at least $4,000 in the next two weeks.

Can you help us out with a gift of $100, $50, $20.18, or $10 to raise the $15,000 we need for supplies this summer?

We depend on your generosity, your energy, your dedication, and your insights. Help PDA provide supplies to activists around the country, and while you are here, visit our PDA Store and pick up supplies for your next local event.

Supplies are currently limited, so first come, first served!

For a Summer of Progress ,
