Sustaining Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is a no-brainer for me. For as little as $5 per month, about the same price as a designer coffee, I can feel like my money is where my mouth is. All the great work of PDA’s virtual phone team, our Capitol Hill and district office letter drops, and especially coordinating our Chapter and regional candidate endorsements, needs our sustaining with an automatic gift of $100, $50, $10 or $5 per month.
A database, website, stickers, posters, volunteers, and a national staff that works so hard for so little is a wise investment in the future success of our progressive movement. PDA gets it, but we need resources to continue our work inside and outside the Democratic Party, with the ultimate goal of “electing a progressive governing majority,” as our late founder Tim Carpenter used to say.
As a medical person, I’m continually proud of PDA for standing up for Single Payer enhanced and improved Medicare for All, and #HealthcareJustice. And as anyone will tell you who has seen me work a Democratic convention or national Single Payer conference like the one we just had in Minneapolis, I can go through a roll of “Healthcare Not Warfare” or “Justice or Bust” stickers pretty quickly. Will you pitch in to help us buy more organizing materials with a sustaining gift of $100, $50, $10 or $5 per month?
This summer, PDA is joining with our dear friends National Nurses United, The Labor Campaign for Single Payer, Social Security Works, Healthcare Now, Physicians for a National Health Program, and many more launching an exciting “Knock On Every Door” campaign.
We’re unrolling an ambitious combined public outreach, legislative, and field operation to bring your message to the people and elected officials: Healthcare is a human right. If you agree, please join me sustaining PDA with an automatic monthly gift of $100, $50, $10 or $5 per month. Whatever you can afford.
We’re building support for HR 676 and Bernie’s healthcare bill in Congress, working so that every American will always receive all medically necessary treatment—including prescriptions, procedures, dental, mental, vision, preventative, and long-term care—without deductibles, zero copayments, nothing out of pocket, and no lifetime caps. $100, $50, $10 or $5 per month is a tiny investment toward achieving the dream of Expanded and Improved Medicare for All.
So why not join me and others in the PDA family? Sign up for our “Change Makes Change” sustainer program with a monthly donation and help continue the great work of so many PDAers like yourself. Because we are the ones we’ve been waiting for, and now is the time for us to do it.
