Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was honored to cosponsor this amazing weekend bringing together Bernie Sanders supporters to discuss our next steps as a transformative movement. If you weren't there, you can watch video from several of the sessions online. (Links coming soon). Bottom line: we accomplished even more than we'd hoped.
PDA's own Executive Director Donna Smith moderated a wonderful panel featuring Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia, and former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner. Literally minutes after appearing in the photo below, Donna spoke on another panel with single payer Medicare for All hero Dr. Paul Song. It was that kind of summit, with several great events back to back–or happening simultaneously.
What An Incredible Summit!
Your PDA national team–staff and dedicated volunteers from around the nation–tabled, networked, and participated throughout the weekend to build the Political Revolution we so desperately need. We distributed leaflets, Justice or Bust and other stickers, and signed up 100s of new PDAers. All this thanks to your ongoing support.
Now, we need you to dig deep again. Or if you haven't donated recently, please pitch in $500, $50, $5 or whatever you can now to help elect strong progressives to Congress–like Eric Kingson (Central New York), Alan Grayson and Tim Canova (both Florida). They need your help to win upcoming primaries. Money tight? Contact me, Mike "Phone Guy" Fox to get involved making critically important get out the vote calls.
