Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is proud to have Rep. Jim McGovern on our National Advisory Board. We gave him an award in 2013 recognizing his exemplary service on behalf of human rights at home and abroad. He has been one of the strongest voices working to overturn Citizens United, introducing Constitutional amendments to declare Money is NOT Speech and Corporations are NOT People. He also takes the fight right at Donald Trump. You will not find a more courageous congress member than Jim McGovern, or a more progressive Democratic group than PDA.
At a recent town hall event, Jim quoted Mark Twain saying, “‘Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.’” He declared Trump “unfit to be president.” To make that case, Jim cited Trump’s “crude and offensive way” of discussing issues, and said, “We cannot normalize this man. We all need to speak up and not get used to this.” Please give $500, $50, or whatever you can today on PDA’s “Who Trumps Trump Tuesday” to help us re-elect Jim McGovern and elect a progressive Congressional majority to work with him for all of us.
Jim understands the need to view national security holistically—including climate, social justice, economic fairness, and more. As he explained, “National security talks need to involve more than a military budget. We need to expand that definition.” He warned, “The Soviet Union collapsed because of excessive military spending. We should be talking about decreasing the nuclear arsenal, not expanding it.”
We at PDA agree with Rep. Jim McGovern on all of the above, as well as on his commitment to ending hunger and climate change and so much more. If you agree with his powerful progressive agenda, please support Rep. Jim McGovern and PDA. Your automatic monthly sustainer donation of any size will help us re-Elect Jim McGovern, as well as recruit and elect Progressive candidates to join with him. That’s something we’ve excelled at.
If you want to push American politics into a progressive direction, understand that we’re struggling against billionaires and super PACs with virtually unlimited money. We’ll never match their expenditures, but luckily we don’t have to. Still, we need your support now. PDA makes the most difference—dollar for dollar—of any organization. Please sign up to make an automatic monthly “sustainer” contribution or a generous one-time donation now.
