Progressive Democrats of America Supports Conviction
and Removal of Donald Trump for High Crimes in Office
Click Here to Email Mike Fox and Demand Accountability


This past week, after months of mobilizing by Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and our partners, the House of Representatives voted for impeachment.

Now, we’re organizing in support of conviction to remove Trump from office and to end his reign of lawlessness, divisiveness, and destructiveness. Contact Mike Fox to get involved!


Protect Our Constitution! Get Gear To Say:
“Impeach, Remove, Indict, Jail”


Because No One Is Above The Law


PDA has been leading the effort to hold Trump accountable. Join PDA as we support impeachment. Our coalition explains:

“Donald Trump betrayed his oath of office, our national security, and the integrity of our elections. He has shown a lack of moral fortitude and fitness for the office of President: repeatedly violating the emoluments clause, demonstrating contempt of Congress, and consistently engaging in obstruction of justice. It’s time to end this era of lawlessness and corruption.”

Alan Minsky, PDA’s Executive Director said, “There is no question that Donald Trump is guilty of high crimes in office, constituting impeachable acts. The House is constitutionally duty-bound to move forward and impeach this lawless president, and the Senate is similarly obligated to convict and remove him from office.”

The Sixth Debate: Silence on Poverty

The sixth Democratic Presidential Debate was held in Los Angeles last week. Once again, the questions were disappointing to say the least.

Make your voice heard! Demand Debate Questions About Poverty And Homelessness. Alan Minsky was interviewed on Democracy Now Friday morning, commenting on the Democratic Presidential Debate—his appearance begins about 5 minutes in. Also, Demand A Complete Debate On The Climate Emergency.
