December 2015 Letter Drop

In November, PDA activists delivered letters to more than 350 House and Senate offices. Our national team followed up with faxes and phone calls.

These letter drops and calls take little time, and have tremendous impact. We're gaining new cosponsors for legislation. Join the movement! Contact Conor for more information and to report back after your successful letter drop.

In December, many of us gather with friends and family to celebrate the year's end and to ring in the New Year. This month, we'll urge members of the House and Senate to join with People Demanding Action as we work to promote peace, reverse or halt unwise policies, and protect the climate as well as American jobs and families. Specifically to:

Insist on a clean budget deal and vote no on any budget riders.
