In solidarity with people and planet, Debra Schrishuhn for Alan, Mike F, Mike H, Janis, Dan, Shayna, Dr. Bill, Kimberly, and Bryan—your PDA National Team
April is Earth Month, and time for organization, mobilization, and serious action on environmental problems. In two short years, the Trump administration has unraveled decades of progress toward energy sustainability, industrial/corporate accountability, and habitat (for humans as well as wildlife and plant life) viability.
Aware of the need for immediate and comprehensive action to combat human-induced catastrophic climate change, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) continues to work alongside inspiring young leaders from the Sunrise Movement and our other allies mobilizing for a strengthened Green New Deal—21st century policies featuring massive investments in clean energy jobs and infrastructure to modernize our economy, and set us on a rapid path to climate stability. Help us gain more cosponsors in Congress. Click here to contact your elected officials.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY14) is direct about our challenge: “Our goal is to treat Climate Change like the serious, existential threat it is by drafting an ambitious solution on the scale necessary—aka a Green New Deal—to get it done.”
PDA is uniquely situated to help make the Green New Deal a reality. We operate inside and outside the Democratic Party. We work alone and with allied organizations across a broad range of issues, from combatting militarization to advocating clean energy to insisting on social and economic justice. We put boots on the ground, in the streets, and in the halls of Congress on a regular basis.
This month—Earth Month—we will send a Windmills Not Weapons free bumper sticker and two Climate Emergency lapel stickers to everyone who donates to our Stop Climate Change campaign. Everyone who signs up as a $5 or more/month sustainer to help us fight climate change all year round will also receive one of our union-made Windmills Not Weapons buttons and a Panels Not Pipelines bumper sticker. We thank you for your support, and by displaying these items you help us spread the word about the need for climate action.
We’re here to help you make progress in your state and locality! If you need help organizing a new PDA chapter or energizing your existing chapter, please contact PDA Field Coordinator Dan O’Neal. Join the PDA Phone Team making easy, effective calls from your own home with Mike “Phone Guy” Fox. Also please pitch in $1000, $100, or whatever you can afford to support our organizing.
