  • Biden-Harris Progress Report #7: Is It Now or Never?

    As we asserted back in July: Infrastructure negotiations likely will lead to make or break legislation for climate change mitigation, millions who are skeptical about our two-party government, and Democrat prospects for the midterms. Since then, our Democratic caucuses in the House and Senate have been unable to deliver. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and Build Back Better Act remain stuck in limbo, perhaps just two votes short of success. Join members of proDA to learn more about and discuss the status of the negotiations, the prospects for passage, and the consequences of further delay. We will advocate for action, urging all of us to intensify our efforts. Time is short and so, too, is the patience of those whose needs are not being met!

    Please RSVP for the Zoom link.

    Beaten Down, Worked Up by Steven Greenhouse - - Global Progressive Caucus Book Discussion

    Date: Monday, October 25, 2021 at 12:00 pm ET (Washington DC) time
    Location: Zoom
    Event Title: Beaten Down, Worked Up by Steven Greenhouse - - Global Progressive Caucus Book Discussion

    All are welcome to attend. Join us!  

    “Greenhouse probably knows more about what is happening in the American workplace than anybody else in the country. . .  a page-turning book that spans a century of worker strikes, without overcondensing or oversimplifying, and with plausible suggestions for the future. . . Great nonfiction requires great characters, and Greenhouse has the gift of portraiture. He is able to draw a complex, human portrait of a worker with a minimum of words, making the reader greedy for more details, not just about the policies but about the people. And he has both the newspaper writer’s ability to find the one or two individuals whose personal stories exemplify a larger point, and the historian’s ability to make what has already happened seem unlikely. He is skilled at homing in on the moments of the highest uncertainty, and transforming them into stories with quick and destabilizing twists and turns. . . Engrossing, character-driven, panoramic.”—Zephyr Teachout, The New York Times Book Review 

    “What I fear is that the there is a systematic effort to wipe clean our national memory of the capacity and benefits of workers acting collectively and building strong unions. Greenhouse’s book helps us remember that labor unions really did build the middle class, raise the dignity of workers, and civilize workplaces. It also gives us reason to believe that, as labor activist Rose Schneiderman poetically framed it, workers still “must have bread” but “must have roses, too.”—Robert Bruno, Perspectives on Work

    “[A] comprehensive primer on a subject that is intimately intertwined with our collective history. . . It is obvious that “Beaten Down, Worked Up” represents a monumental–and mostly successful–attempt to connect all the dots and thus provide a clear context for the ongoing societal debate about the efficacy of the labor movement and its place in contemporary culture. . . If you are concerned about the future, and especially our economic prospects, this is one you’ll definitely want to add to your reading list. Highly recommended.”—Aaron Hughey, Bowling Green Daily News

    Participants need to know that if there are access, affordability, etc. problems for a book/books, they should contact co-leaders, John Esteban Rodriguez and Betsy Ettorre ([email protected]) who will help them with the listed books. Learn more about the proDA Book Club.

    Make "Good Trouble"

    and Save Our Democracy!

    A fundraiser in celebration of the life and work of the late Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights leader, John R. Lewis.

    john_lewis_selma_1965.1c.jpg 

    Democrats Abroad is commemorating Congressman John Lewis with two online screenings of the documentary "John Lewis - Get in the Way" on July 11, various actions days after Congress resumes legislative business, and a Forum on July 17, the one-year anniversary of his passing.

    Often described as the conscience of the Congress, John Lewis was a friend to Democrats Abroad. To raise funds for DA’s GOTV efforts, we ask everyone—whether you attend or not—to donate $19.65—or for those who wish to be a Gold Star Supporter, $80 representing the 80 years of John Lewis’ extraordinary, courageous life.

    Please join Democrats Abroad to honor the memory of John Lewis and carry forward the flame of his dedication to voting rights for all.

    Cleve Jones will speak about "This is not my first pandemic" to Democrats Abroad in a webinar hosted by Solidarity Sundays Austria and the Democrats Abroad Global LGBTI Caucus.  

    Cleve will discuss and draw the parallels between the AIDS and COVID-19 government then and now. Both pandemics began with a Republican president in the White House who did not perceive the gravity of the situation and failed to lead the country. Please make a donation today and make a difference with Democrats Abroad!
