In solidarity, Mike Hersh for Alan, Dan, Janis, Deb, Dr. Bill, Kimberly, Bryan, Mike F., and Shayna—your PDA national team.
Unlike most organizations, Progressive Democrats Of America (PDA) works using an “inside / outside” strategy. Many other organizations work inside power structures, and many work on the outside, but PDA acts as an essential bridge, bringing the passion and urgency of outside organizing into the halls of power.
For example, last Friday young people led millions of climate strikers around the world demanding decisive action to address the Climate Emergency. Tomorrow, activists will bring direct action into the streets of Washington, D.C. PDA continues to support these “outside” efforts.
PDA and allied activists will help close the deal this week by leading “inside” efforts: grassroots lobbying on Capitol Hill on September 24th and September 25th, urging Senators and Representatives to cosponsor the Climate Emergency Concurrent Resolution.
If you appreciate the countless hours of hard work PDA devotes to organizing activists, developing and printing materials, working with congressional offices, planning events, training grassroots lobbyists, and everything else that goes into these efforts, please Click Here to sustain our work addressing the Climate Emergency!
Protests are essential to forcing leaders to pay attention, but they only go so far. Without equally powerful “inside” efforts—meeting with Senators and Representatives, holding briefings inside Congress, and organizing a historic press conference / rally on Capitol Hill—the changes we need just won’t happen. Without PDA leading the way, many essential “inside” mobilizations won’t happen.
