As the second-longest-serving Democrat in the House of Representatives, I know what I am talking about when I say that no one has worked harder on the issues  protecting Social Security,  fighting for a full employment economy and  national health care both inside and outside the Democratic Party, than PDA.

Rep. John Conyers, PDA Advisory Board Member

“PDA is attempting to represent the new generation of reformers. The Democratic Party will only ‘listen’ when the challenge of PDA and progressive reformers is powerful enough.”

Tom Hayden, anti-war leader, former California State Senator

In just a few years, PDA and its allies have shaken up the political status quo on issues that range from ending the war in Iraq, protecting Social Security and fighting for a full employment economy, national health care and economic justice. I commend PDA for its bold agenda and actions, and I stand with PDA and its membership in the fight for the rights of the 99%.

Rep. Raul Grijalva, co-chair of Congressional Progressive Caucus and PDA board member

“While the Hip Hop community is skeptical of the left movement because of its lack of base in communities of color, the Progressive Democrats of America’s current outreach and willingness to have people of color in its core leadership have shown everyone what it means to have a united front encompassing diverse constituencies.”

Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., Hip Hop Caucus

“A new group called Progressive Democrats of America is organizing at the grassroots to put the kick back in the Democratic donkey. About time.”

Jim Hightower, author and commentator

“Devastated by the results of the 2004 election, I was looking for a group that would help unite progressive Democrats with others, like the Greens, to form a ‘big tent’ for those who believe in social justice and peace. . .PDA has proven to be a creative, dynamic force for everything from electoral reform to ending the war in Iraq. I’m honored to be on the PDA board.”

Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK, Global Exchange

“PDA is making politics more user-friendly for progressive peace and justice activists. Organized people power can still overturn the minority dominion of money, violence and lies in American politics.”

Mimi Kennedy, actor

“The strategic activism of Progressive Democrats of America gives me new hope that the Democratic Party and our country can be turned around. Out of the ashes and despair of the 2004 election, PDA has been carrying the torch for progressive activism—PDA is working hard to establish chapters in every congressional district. I was there when PDA launched in Roxbury, Mass., and I’m spreading the word about PDA everywhere I go.”

Rep. Barbara Lee

“PDA is the most dynamic progressive organization in the U.S. They are principled, fearless, and proud.”

Bob Fertik, President, Democrats.com

“PDA is one of the most generous and energetic groups I have ever met. PDA truly understands what it takes to build a community of communities, a movement of movements.”

Bill Scheurer, PeaceMajority.org

John Nichols, writer for the Nation Magazine, discussed Progressive Democrats of America's efforts to end the wars, healthcare not warfare, accountability, wall street, reform, taxing the wealthy and corporations, and more on the eve of the Iowa Caucus.
