Support PDA & Tulsi Gabbard

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was founded in 2004 to make progress on the issues that matter to you, and we’re keeping busy doing that. Earlier this week, we mobilized callers and put a real scare into Trump, falling just short in a special election for Congress. We selected some top progressive candidates, and asked you to support them.

We also held organizing calls, and we’re welcoming Rep. Tulsi Gabbard to Denver, Colorado this weekend. To keep up this frenetic pace, we need your help! Please pitch in to show solidarity with Tulsi and PDA. Hopefully we’ll organize a similar reception near you! We keep making it easy for you to take action with powerful action tools.

Help End The Opioid Epidemic

HHS: About The Opioid Epidemic


The Opioid Epidemic is killing 10,000s, causing skyrocketing addiction rates, and costing us $billions. This crisis will not abate until those who caused it are held accountable. Tell your Senators to cosponsor Senator Bernie Sanders’ legislation, the Opioid Crisis Accountability Act.

Friday, The New York Times reported, “Hundreds of Palestinians stormed the fence between Gaza and Israel. Israeli troops opened fire, killing at least 3 and wounding hundreds.” We demand a peaceful solution to the Palestine/Israel conflict. Join us Demanding Non-Violence in Gaza.

PDA was instrumental in the early work around the Off Fossil Fuels for a Better Future Act (OFF) Act, working with lead sponsor Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. When the OFF Act becomes law, we will aggressively move toward 100 percent renewable energy sources by 2035. Please tell your Representative to cosponsor the OFF Act.

As the Trumpublican regime moves to obliterate environmental regulations and protections, we must rise together and address the climate emergency and defend the environment in every possible way. Please click here to tell Congress: Fire Scott Pruitt. Then, please pitch in to support PDA’s Climate Organizing.

Money short? Then please support our work with your time and effort. Make easy. effective calls from your own home to help elect candidates, and make progress. Mike “Phone Guy” Fox will show you how.

Join us telling Congress to end and prevent war, guarantee equal rights, protect our climate and environment, champion healthcare as a human right, impeach Trump, and stand up for the DREAMers. Also, urge Bernie Sanders to run for president and suggest who he should pick as his running mate. Please use our updated alert to prevent all-out war in Syria.
