In solidarity, Mike Hersh for Alan, Shayna, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, Mike F., Dr. Bill, Dan, and Janis—your PDA national team.
With yet another mass shooting yesterday and a massive hurricane bearing down on us today, this is a time for reflection and action. Reflection on the consequences of elections. Action to remedy the fatally flawed policies that result from regressive politics.
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) has long championed progressive candidates and progressive solutions to our challenges, including decisive action to address the Climate Emergency and common sense gun safety legislation.
Americans overwhelmingly support a progressive agenda, including on climate and gun safety. Unfortunately, corporate special interests—specifically fossil fuel corporations and gun / ammunition manufacturers—use undue influence on elected officials to block needed progress.
PDA says, “Enough is enough!” We believe that it’s long past time for the politicians to listen to We the People. Click Here to tell your elected officials to support gun safety measures. Click Here to tell your elected officials to cosponsor the Climate Emergency Resolution.
