We hope everyone in the Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) family is safely self-quarantining during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Unfortunately, COIVD-19 deniers are planning to protest against reasonable safety measures, putting themselves and their loved ones at risk—as well as undermining efforts to slow the spread of the virus. Please urge all of your family members and friends to stay home and stay safe!

We’re not going to sugarcoat this. We’re all facing a severe and dangerous threat to our health, our lives, and our livelihoods. Still, we will overcome this crisis—all the more rapidly if we all work together and do our parts.

Click Here to contact Mike Fox to RSVP for our Emergency Healthcare Town Hall TOMORROW, Sunday May 19, 1pm PT, 2pm MT, 3pm CT, 4pm ET. Dr. Bill Honigman and special guests will answer your questions and discuss your concerns.

Congress has passed “emergency response” legislation that fails to address the emergency. Specifically and outrageously, our frontline healthcare professionals are still working courageously to save lives without the protective equipment they need. Click Here to tell Congress to include emergency funding for PPEs and mandate occupational and safety standards to protect healthcare professionals.

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.

Our immigration and asylum 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, there’s no excuse for holding them in prison camps. Click Here to tell Congress to end inhumane and deadly abuses against immigrants and asylum-seekers.

Find out what we’re doing in response to the Novel Coronavirus pandemic, and how you can help. Please contact Mike Fox to RSVP to join TOMORROW’S Emergency Healthcare Webinar. You must RSVP. The access codes, phone numbers, etc. have changed.

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.

Medicare For All (MFA) is a vital component of the comprehensive Green New Deal agenda. To ensure our immediate and long-term survival, we need the Green New Deal. That initiative features policies to create millions of new highly-paid sustainable jobs, to build critically-needed infrastructure, to eliminate 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.


P.S.: Please remember to RSVP to Mike Fox to join our Healthcare Emergency Virtual Town Hall / Webinar TOMORROW, Sunday 4/19 from 4-5pm ET, 1-2pm PT. Mike will provide all the call-in information. Then, join PDA investing to enact Medicare For All and science-based, effective, emergency COVID-2019 response policies.
