Let’s Bring Serious Change To Congress!

 

As we see McConnell in the Senate and House Republicans all walking in lock step with Trump, this cycle it’s critical that we continue the blue wave of 2018 and fill a record number of House and Senate seats with legitimate progressives.

COVID19 has dramatically shown the need for the kind of programs we’ve always championed — from Expanded And Improved Medicare For All to the Green New Deal and more — so we’re in a prime position for pick-ups.

The Congressional Progressive Caucus is the largest caucus in the House — 95 members — and if we bump that to 118 we’ll have a House majority!  And several seats in the Senate are now up for grabs.

So please help us generate the kind of ground and air game to bring these victories home.

Can’t give money?  Then give time.  Let us know and we’ll get to work together!

Thanks so much for anything you can do to help us build the progressive majority!

    Progressives need to separate from the Democratic Party. The moderates don’t share our same values. Let’s merge with the Green Party and make our home there. I’ve already #DemExit and #GreenEntered.

    I view Trump with a new understanding that he loathes his own shadow in fear he didn’t care about the right moral road to tread.

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.
