We Must Act Now! Demand Science-Based COVID-19 Response
Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F., Dan, Donna, Dr. Bill, Janis, Deb, Bryan, and Kimberly—Your PDA National Team
Congress is about to vote on COVID-19 legislation, and Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is working within a large, powerful coalition to demand effective, science and medically based COVID-19 responses. We need your help now! Please take the following actions:
Click Here to tell Congress to include emergency funding for PPEs and mandate occupational and safety standards to protect healthcare professionals.
We’re horrified at the ongoing oppression of immigrants and asylum seekers. Our immigration policies have long needed fundamental reform. Even before the COVID-19 outbreak, innocent people including infants and children were suffering and dying in custody.
Now, Trump is escalating his xenophobic attacks on immigrants once again, using Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to terrorize people in hospitals, schools, and their homes.
Click here to tell your Representative and Senators to vote to defund and abolish ICE, to quickly pass the bipartisan Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, and to end inhumane and deadly abuses against immigrants and asylum-seekers.
Tell Congress To Support The USPS During This Crisis! We need the Post Office to ensure delivery of medications and other necessities, as well as to allow secure, accurate vote-by-mail for primaries and the general election.
Click Here to contact Mike Fox and RSVP for our Emergency Healthcare Town Hall TOMORROW, Sunday May 17th, 1pm PT, 2pm MT, 3pm CT, 4pm ET. Dr. Bill Honigman and special guests will answer your questions and discuss your concerns.
During this crisis, we’re relying on the U.S. Postal Service more than ever for delivery of basic necessities including medications. Even as we make plans for voting-by-mail that will dramatically increase already onerous pressures on the USPS, the Service struggles to cope with absurd, arbitrary pension requirements.
Click Here to tell Congress that the next emergency response legislation must adequately fund the USPS.
Act now! Congress will vote on the next COVID Response legislation as early next week. 46 million Americans are carrying a staggering sum total of 1.7 trillion dollars of student debt. They’re trapped, with no hope of paying off their debt unless Congress steps up to help. Sign the Petition Telling Congress to Cancel Student Debt.
Can’t make the call but still want to help our healthcare campaigns? Contact us and we’ll keep you as busy as you’d like to be.
Can’t volunteer? Then pitch in what you can to help support our ongoing emergency response efforts, our campaign for Medicare For All, and other policies we need to effectively respond to the pandemic, to promote an equitable economic recovery, and to upgrade our healthcare system.
We can’t go back to business as usual after the pandemic crisis is over. We need to mobilize now for the Post-COVID-19 world. That’s why PDA supports the comprehensive Green New Deal agenda.
To ensure our immediate and long-term survival, we need the Green New Deal—policies to create millions of new, highly-paid, sustainable jobs, to build critically-needed infrastructure, to free ourselves from household debt, and to enhance our social safety net.
We need an empowered, progressive mass movement to demand the policies and government responses needed to save lives and rebuild our shattered economy. We need your generous support to get there.
