Barriers to Voting Are Barriers To Progress
Support PDA’s Work to Protect Voting Rights


As we struggle to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, we know lives hang in the balance. Also, we must recognize that our democracy is in dire peril. Long before the current healthcare crisis, Republicans have been implementing voter suppression schemes—almost always along racial lines.

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) deplores historic voter suppression, and we’re working to thwart efforts to exploit the pandemic to rig our elections. We’ve been committed to supporting clean, fair, inclusive, and accurately-counted elections since our founding in 2004. As our first major effort, we worked with allies investigating and publicizing wholesale elections “irregularities” in Ohio.

Now, we need your help to protect your right to participate in our elections. Please join PDA and allies working to ensure that every voter is allowed to vote without interference, and that their votes are counted accurately.

Pitch In Each Month To Protect Voting Rights For All

Once again, PDA’s founding Advisory Board Chair and renowned fair and accurate elections activist Mimi Kennedy has prepared voters’ “survival kits,” i.e. specific, concrete advice to help voters protect their rights and prevent their disenfranchisement.

Mimi asserts that only a well-informed voter is able to detect and overcome voter registration purges, unauthorized changes to their party affiliation, and other threats to participation in our democracy. Mimi has taken it upon herself to once again forewarn voters as Election Day approaches.

We’re proud to support the highly-effective coalition organizing by our sibling organization, People Demanding Action, led by the brilliant Andrea Miller. As Executive Director, Andrea brings together several organizations to help voters overcome barriers to participation, to protect our rights to vote, and to have our votes counted accurately.

With your generous support, PDA will not only maintain our election protection efforts; we will also launch an ambitious new voter information and outreach campaign. We’re already using traditional and social media, cutting-edge technology, and sheer hard work to push back against confusion, glitches—and yes—the ongoing premeditated efforts to disenfranchise legal voters during this most critically important election cycle.

We need your support for these efforts to succeed. Please pitch in generously now to sustain PDA’s ongoing and expanding work to ensure voters’ rights! We can’t do anything without you. Now is the time to invest in voting rights with automatic monthly gifts or a one-time donation.
