Wayne Powell Wins PDA National Endorsement

Written by  PDA National

On Thursday, December 22, 2011 candidate E. Wayne Powell, challenging Eric Cantor, received the National endorsement from Progressive Democrats of America.

Wayne received the local 7th District local chapter endorsement in October. In addition to a local endorsement, candidates seeking National endorsement must also be endorsed by the state. PDA Virginia emailed a questionnaire to their membership; PDA Virginia voted to endorse Wayne Powell.

Dr. William Ferguson Reid introduced Wayne Powell on the national call. Dr. Reid was the first African-American elected to the Virginia Assembly; Dr. Reid is also one of the founders of the Richmond Crusade for Voters which also endorsed Wayne Powell. Virginia members from Northern Virginia, Central Virginia and Hampton Roads particpated joined the endorsement call.

Congratulations, Wayne.

Join "Countdown to Coverage" Share TPP with your Daily Newspaper

CWA devised a simple plan for which they were uniquely suited: drag TPP out of the shadows and into the light - one city at a time - using a medium they understand intimately: Daily Newspapers!

Two CWA members - Dave Felice in Denver, CO and Madelyn Elder in Portland, OR have started the ball rolling. We just need to keep up the momentum leading up to a big day of petition deliveries in January.


Step 1 is to send an Op-Ed to your Daily Newspaper.

Sign the Petition - Sen. Sanders Run as a Democrat in 2016


Sign the TPP Fast Track Petitions Petition - Congress Don't Renew Fast Track

Pulic Citizen Petition - Congress Must Reject Fast Track Authority Petition - Stop the Trans Pacific Partnership

CREDO Petition - Stop the Massive Corporate Power Grab


Hand Deliver a Letter to your Senators or Representative on the TPP

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently opposed to Fast Track, they may not completely understand all the implications. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
