Rep. Ellison Proud to Receive Endorsement of Progressive Democrats of America

Written by  Mike Hersh | PDA National

Today, Congressman Keith Ellison (MN-05) was endorsed by Progressive Democrats of America (PDA). “I’m proud and honored to receive the endorsement of an organization like the Progressive Democrats of America. Like my campaign, they’re working hard to organize voters from the bottom up at the grassroots level,” said Congressman Ellison.

He added that “organizations like PDA are standing up for progressive values across the America. They’ve been a key partner in the fight to protect voting rights, expand access to affordable health care, and to make sure we have a fair and equitable economy.”

PDA Minnesota members led by National Nurses United (NNU) Co-President Jean Ross brought Rep. Ellison's reelection to the U.S. House of Representatives from Minnesota's 5th Congressional District endorsement forward. Rep. Ellisons has been a strong progressive leader since he entered the House in 2007.

PDA works closely with the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) on all our prioities: healthcare not warfare,economic and social justice, election reform, stopping global warming and ending corporate rule. As CPC Co-Chair Rep. Ellison has been there for us. He joined PDA at our 2008 Progressive Central events in Denver and has agreed to stand with us in Charlotte this year.

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.

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.
