Next week is the 53rd anniversary of Medicare—one of the most effective, important programs in U.S. history. Last week, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and allied organizations celebrated the launch of the new Medicare For All Caucus. We’re working in coalition to support the new caucus and build support for Healthcare as a Human Right.
About 70 members of Congress joined the caucus to help build support for H.R. 676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare For All Act. and PDA is an important part of that mobilization (as well as organizing for Bernie Sanders’ healthcare bill). Click here to read more about the caucus.

We’re busy demanding action on progressive issues ranging from peace to stopping global warming to economic and social justice to reuniting families separated at the border to protecting all women’s rights to enacting Medicare for All nationwide to fair, secure and accurate elections. We need your support to amplify our voices!

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) understands that it’s not enough to merely resist Trump and his Trumpublican enablers. We must organize and mobilize to contain the damage including by electing progressives to Congress in November—but even that isn’t enough. It’s impossible to keep up with all of the corruption, incompetence, and wrongdoing by the Trumpublican Syndicate. Just this past week, Trump disgraced our nation by kowtowing to Putin and flippantly rewriting our foreign policy on the fly.
Somehow despite his obsequiousness to Putin, Trump rejected Russian overtures to denuclearize our planet. He is uninformed, erratic, impulsive, and inept. To protect us from any number of looming catastrophes, the Congress must restrain Trump. Use our action alerts below to demand that Congress act now, before the next crisis, crime, or calamity! Tell Congress: Don’t Let Trump Fire Mueller. Also, Tell Congress To Investigate And Impeach Trump.
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) has an exacting endorsement process. Only the most progressive candidates get our support. One such leader is Kevin de Leon, our pick for U.S. Senate from California.

This was a stinging rebuke to longterm incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) activists were on the ground working for this amazing victory. Will you pitch in to keep the momentum building? Please join us supporting Kevin de Leon For U.S. Senate.
