Susan Collins Must Go.  Betsy Sweet Is A Perfect Replacement 

Susan Collins is a nationally-renowned disappointment.  She tries to promote herself as some kind of moderate, but when push comes to shove she always walks the Trump/Tea Party line.  She’s just plain got to go.

The good news is that we have a tremendous progressive option in Maine: Betsy Sweet.

From Expanded And Improved Medicare For All, the Green New Deal, getting money out of politics, social, economic, and racial justice and peace, Betsy is in step with all of our progressive stances, and most importantly isn’t afraid to stand up and fight for what is right.  She’s been fighting for almost 40 years for underserved Mainers as an activist, and now’s the time to send her to the US Senate to work for us all.

Join our Virtual Town Hall to get to know her better.

Can’t Volunteer?  Please toss in what you can to help bring home the victory.

We are in serious need of an unwavering advocate who will stand up to Mitch McConnell’s underhanded dealings.  There’s no question Betsy will be that Senator.

Thanks so much for anything you can do to help bring this victory home.

Tell Congress To End Police BrutalityIn This Critical Moment, We See No Leadership From The White House We Look To Justice-Minded Members of Congress, to Step Up and Lead

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) condemns ongoing, escalating violence against African Americans. We desperately need a national truth and reconciliation conversation to admit and rectify the scourge of structural racism, including comprehensive policy changes.

H.Res.988, cosponsored by four courageous congressional leaders, is a decisive first step. Join us demanding its passage in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In response to the brutal murder of George Floyd by a sworn peace officer, abetted and assisted by three other sworn peace officers in broad daylight, four U.S. Representatives have stepped up to lead.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN, in whose district the murder took place), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) introduced H.Res. 988, a resolution to the U.S. House of Representatives, “condemning all acts of police brutality, racial profiling, and the use of excessive and militarized force throughout the country.”

Tell Congress To End Police Brutality

Take action now! Click Here to email your U.S. Representative and demand passage of H.Res. 988 as a first step toward seeking justice for George Floyd and so many others whose lives have been cut short by police brutality.

“From slavery to lynching to Jim Crow, black people in this country have been brutalized and dehumanized for centuries,” Rep. Omar stated last week. “We cannot fully right these wrongs until we admit we have a problem. As the People’s House, the House of Representatives must acknowledge these historical injustices and call for a comprehensive solution. There are many steps on the path to justice, but we must begin to take them.”

George Floyd is just one among the latest in a (much too) long list of victims of state-sanctioned terrorism against African Americans. We know the names of some recent victims, but for far too long records and statistics on extra-judicial police killings have not even been kept. For too many years, officers have not been charged, and—if charged—they have not been effectively prosecuted or convicted.

Email your U.S. Representative today and demand passage of the Omar-Pressley-Bass-Lee resolution (H.Res.988) condemning police brutality, racial profiling, and excessive and militarized force by police.
