COVID-19 deaths are still at an alarming rate, but the Biden administration is ramping up efforts to increase vaccine production and distribution.

Biden’s moves on the environment have us encouraged, and Chuck Schumer’s suggestion that Biden call an official Climate Emergency reflect the hard work we’ve been putting in on that front via the resolution in Congress.  We anticipate more on this issue soon, so keep your eyes peeled for actions.

Finally, the impending impeachment trial in the Senate – and more revelations of troubling statements and actions by insurrectionist-friendly members of congress like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Josh Hawley, and Ted Cruz – have us focused on justice within the capitol halls.

It’s been a busy week, and we’re ramping up for an even busier week ahead.  Here’s how you can get involved:

1) Help make the country healthier.
PDA Healthcare Emergency Town Hall
Sunday, January 31
4pm Eastern; 3pm Central; 2pm Mountain; 1pm Pacific; 12pm AK; 11am HI.
Join us as we discuss the vaccine rollout and campaigns to make the country a healthier place for all.  If you haven’t already, RSVP here.

2) Contact your Senators in support of impeachment conviction for Donald Trump.  Calls are best, but you can also connect via email here.  Please let us know if you act.

3) Support justice for insurrectionist House Members by asking your US House member to co-sign Rep. Cori Bush’s call to hold them accountable.  Please let us know if you act.

4) Help elect solid progressives like Nina Turner in upcoming special elections.  Make easy calls from home to fellow PDA folks.  Sign up here.

5) Can’t volunteer?  Then please contribute what you can afford and make it monthly if you can.  There’s much to do, and we need the resources to make it happen.

Thanks so much for anything you can do to help us make a more progressive world for all.
