Thump Trump

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) has a long and consistent history of endorsing only candidates who share our values as evidenced by their positions on our issues. That's not just our history; it is our endorsement policy. PDA helped persuade Bernie Sanders to run for president. Unfortunately his campaign fell short. Still, we are not defeated. PDA endorsed the ColoradoCare ballot initiative and a slate of progressives for Congress. We're focused on helping them win in November. We hope you will join us working to elect progressives and help Coloradans expand high quality healthcare to all their residents.

Please volunteer with Mike "Phone Guy" Fox to make important Get Out The Vote (GOTV) calls from your own home. Feel like enjoying a Rocky Mountain Autumn? Then please contact Donna Smith to join us in Colorado working for ColoradoCare. Too busy to volunteer? Then please contribute generously to support PDA's efforts on behalf of ColoradoCare. We gratefully welcome any donation.

For Our Kids And Grandkids

UPDATE: Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) challenged ourselves to recruit 100 new sustainers—donors who support PDA with automatic monthly payments—by Election Day.

From climate change to healthcare, peace, and justice, I feel that PDA gives me the biggest bang for my buck and the best investment I can make for the future of all of our kids and grandkids."

No Place For Hate

U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii's 2nd Congressional District faces harsh criticism due to her faith, and that is unacceptable. It seems during this general election cycle we have seen so much overall intolerance related to not only faith but gender, race, physical ability and appearance, economic status, mental competence, and more.  Please Donate Now to Support PDA's Efforts For Tolerance. Then, sign up with Mike Fox to make important movement building calls.

Applegate vs Issa

Early voting/vote by mail in California is starting soon! Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) chose to help Doug Applegate beat Darrel Issa, the richest member of Congress, even before Issa targeted us. Issa is trying to smear us as dangerous radicals, and attacking Doug for upholding positions we advocate. What are these so-called "radical positions?" Issa's attack ad says Doug plans on: "Taking Obamacare another step further.... Passing a new carbon tax.... Undoing free trade deals...." These are all policies that we know would make life better for everyone.

Hear from Doug Applegate this Thursday, October 20th, 9pm ET, 6pm PT
Dial-in Number: (712) 775-7035 Access Code: 124469#

We expect a packed call so please RSVP to Mike Fox and include any questions for Doug

Polls show Doug is neck-and-neck with Issa. Please dig deep and donate to help elect Doug now! Money tight? Then sign up with Mike "Phone Guy" Fox to make easy but important calls from your own home.

Our Ambitious Goal

UPDATE: Last month, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) challenged ourselves to recruit 100 new sustainers—donors who support PDA with automatic monthly payments—by Election Day. We are more than one-third of the way to our goal, but time is running short. We need 66 more sustainers in the next few weeks—we can do it if we work together on this important goal to help PDA become more financially stable and sustainable!

Debra Schrishuhn

To achieve the progress we all want, we still need 66 new sustainers by Election Day. We want to recognize those who dig deep to help sustain PDA as monthly sustainers. "Change Makes Change" helps us more easily budget and make plans by letting us rely on a steady flow of your generosity. Thank you! We couldn't do anything without you. If you're not yet a sustainer, will you please click here now to help us reach our goal of 100 new sustainers by Election Day?

Rally for ColoradoCare with PDA and our Colorado CD4 endorsed Congressional candidate Bob Seay

Our allies with the ColoradoCareYES campaign reported they're "thrilled to announce one of the most anticipated events of the season in the run-up to Election Day. Senator Bernie Sanders will host a rally in support of ColoradoCare, Amendment 69 on the November ballot, this Monday, October 17th in Boulder. The former presidential candidate has aggressively supported Amendment 69, and his Colorado appearance should give a powerful boost to ColoradoCare's profile as voters begin marking their ballots."
