Invest in Progress, Get a Shot at a Unique Keepsake!

Bernies-Yearning_sm.pngHave you seen this? It's called Bernie's Yearning.  Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben & Jerry's, decided he would design and share a new ice cream flavor in honor of Bernie's campaign. He did this quite apart from the B&J's company, on his own as a private citizen, so you won't find this delicious pint anywhere but right here.

PDA has been given one signed and numbered pint of Bernie's Yearning in recognition of our incredible work to support Bernie's campaign.  This is your chance to support the We Want Bernie work PDA does and taste an incredible part of the history of this political revolution started by those who believe that the time has come.

Tell DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to Resign!

Progressive Democrats of America is seriously concerned about the problematic tenure of Democratic National Committee Chair, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. At a time when the Democrats will need a person of the highest integrity to unify, empower, and lead the Party into the general election, Ms. Wasserman-Schultz has proven she is either incapable or unwilling to provide solid, effective, or impartial leadership.

How can the Democratic Party build support throughout the primary season without sound leadership? Click here to join PDA and a large, growing coalition calling upon Ms. Wasserman-Schultz to resign.

Poison a Person go to Jail, Poison a City Stay as Governor?

We Are All Flint, Michigan!

Are you as outraged as we are by the reckless disregard for life Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has repeatedly shown? Last summer, Progressive Democrats of America and People Demanding Action joined with our allies to defend the basic human right to water in Detroit.

A broad coalition marched, organized call-in days, and otherwise protested against Snyder’s unfair austerity policies. We fought him and we won. We’d hoped that he'd learned his lesson. Clearly he hasn't.

Now, we're asking you to join with PDA and our allies—notably Bernie Sanders, and award-winning documentarian and Flint native Michael Moore—to demand accountability. Michael Moore is asking us to join him through an online petition.

Stand up for Flint. Sign the petition.

Remove Rahm Emanuel

Laquan McDonald. Ronald Johnson. Quintonio LeGrier. Bettie Jones. How many more innocent Chicagoans will die by police bullets on Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s watch? How many more public schools will he close? 

Chicago needs and deserves a mayor who respects its citizens’ lives, and a properly trained police force that truly serves and protects Chicagoans.

For us, it's personal. We live or lived in Chicago, and we're disgusted at what we've seen. After several years of gross mismanagement and neglect, it's clear that Chicago needs a new mayor.

Demand Fairness from the DNC!

ACT NOW! The DNC must immediately restore full voter data access to Bernie's campaign! Contact the DNC now using links below!

In case you haven't heard, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has shut down the Bernie Sanders Campaign's access to its Voter Activation Network (VAN). This means the Bernie campaign cannot access its own data!

This is a gross overreaction to a breach in the DNC vendor's security that the Bernie Sanders campaign reported to the DNC some time ago.

Media Balance for Bernie


We Demand Fair Coverage!


We all knew that the corporate media wouldn't give Bernie a fair shake. The classic quote is "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised". But we had no idea the numbers would be this ridiculously unfair. On evening news programs this year, Trump's insane ramblings garnered 234 minutes. Bernie? 10 minutes. That's not a typo. 234 to 10! So it's time for all of us Bernie supporters to lend our voices to the fight.
