Your Victory in Alabama and Beyond!
By Mike Hersh, PDA Communications Director for Donna, Mike F., Judy, Janis, Dan, Dr. Bill, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, and Amos—Your PDA National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was founded in 2004 to drive our politics toward progress. We helped the Bernie Sanders movement change the conversation to discuss the policies we need like Medicare for All, Healthcare Not Warfare, Jobs and College For All, and more. American voters are embracing our positions as never before. The amazing results in last week’s and last month’s elections confirm that.
We saw Doug Jones run and win as a pro-choice, anti-racist, pro-civil rights, pro-living wage, pro-education, pro-housing, pro-equality, pro-economic fairness, and healthcare is a human right progressive last Tuesday. His victory in deep red Alabama placed an exclamation point on the stunning wins by strong progressive candidates and issues last November.
This mighty progressive wave prevailed from Alabama to Maine to Florida to New Jersey to Virginia to Washington State—as well as in many places in between. This is all because of you and your generous support. Do you agree with us that Democrats who champion inclusive prosperity, peace, improved Medicare for All, as well as intersectional social and economic justice will win in 2018 and 2020? If so, will you please pitch in $20.18 (or any other amount) per month to build on these progressive victories?
We’ve been pushing the Democratic Party back to its progressive roots for more than 13 years, and we’re seeing real results. We’re celebrating victories, thanks to your support. We can do more, but we can’t do it alone. We need 100 new sustainers—generous supporters who give automatic monthly donations—so we can recruit and empower a new wave of progressives to join our champions in Congress. Signing up for the Win 2018 Sustainer Team at $20.18 per month would help so much, but we appreciate any amount you can spare.
PDA is hard at work recruiting new strong progressive candidates to run for Congress in 2018. We’ve been successful in the past, helping progressives like Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, as well as Representatives Keith Ellison, Jim McGovern, Barbara Lee, Raul Grijalva, Rick Nolan, Mark Pocan, Tulsi Gabbard, Jamie Raskin, Pramila Jayapal, Ted Lieu, Bonnie Watson Coleman, Nanette Barragan, and others win. PDA needs your help now to make the difference in 2018.
Only a newly-empowered progressive movement can defeat Trump. Dig deeply now and donate generously to help PDA elect progressives. Joining the Win 2018 Sustainer Team at $20.18 per month or giving any amount will help us find and support the next generation of Progressive champions.
