We Need You Now
By Debra Schrishuhn for Mike F., Judy, Mike H., Donna, Dr. Bill, Janis, Dan, Kimberly, and Bryan—your PDA National team
On Tuesday, June 26th, voters in New York, Maryland, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Mississippi and South Carolina will choose candidates for November. Our previous email listed the wrong date and states voting. Our apologies.
Each day’s onslaught of national and international news makes a clearer case for the absolute necessity of a Blue Wave in November 2018. We have no other way to put the brakes on this administration’s destructive policies, actions, and appointments. Primary voters are nominating candidates now. To ensure a Blue Wave, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) needs your monthly sustaining help.
We’ve been working for a more progressive Congress since 2004, and we’ve learned there are many shades of blue. It is not enough just to elect any Democrats. Actions of past Democratic majorities teach us that conservative and corporate Democrats work more closely with Republicans for narrow elite special interests—not in the interests of most Americans.
We need to elect strong progressive candidates who will not back down, will not give up, and will not be silent in the face of relentless attacks on the most vulnerable members of society. Please sign up for automatic monthly contributions of whatever amount you can afford to help us elect strong progressives starting in the primaries.
In primary election campaigns, issues gain visibility and we have a chance to advance better candidates to the general election—candidates who will stand up and speak out for all our interests. CORRECTION: On Tuesday, June 26th, voters in New York, Maryland, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Mississippi and South Carolina will choose candidates for November. Help us help progressive candidates get on the November ballot. Let’s make the Democratic bench a vibrant shade of blue.
Your monthly gift of $20.18, $12, $6, or whatever you can spare helps PDA support progressive candidates who will champion social, economic, and environmental justice. Monthly sustaining gifts help us budget and plan ahead. Your steady monthly support lets us respond quickly to fast-moving developments in campaigns and in the Congress.
To help amplify our message, please visit the PDA Store where you can find Bernie gear, Rapid Response Kits, and plenty of issue-oriented buttons and bumper stickers.
Together, we have made a difference, and with your monthly support we will continue to fight for progressive values and champions who are not bought and paid for by billionaires, Big Oil, Big Pharma, or the NRA.
