    Get Out the Progressive Vote in Presidential Primaries Now!

    To win the presidential election in November and motivate a new generation of voters, we must ensure the Democratic Party platform is the most progressive ever -  including Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, eliminating student debt, criminal justice reform, reducing income inequality, and much more!  Voters in the remaining primaries will determine whether or not the Sanders campaign has the needed leverage to impact the platform, rules, and other critical decisions made at the Democratic National Convention.  To ensure that is the case, Senator Sanders needs 25% of the delegates for maximum influence on the Rules and Bylaws, Platform, and Credential committees, especially for bringing resolutions to the floor of the convention. Right now, Bernie needs 141 more delegates to reach 1,200 and 25%!

    What is the current delegate count* (delegate count data accurate as of June 14, 2020. Source: NBC)

    • Joe Biden has 2,132 delegates and has secured the nomination.
    • Bernie Sanders has 1059  and no longer can secure the nomination.
    • Other candidates have received a total 119 delegates.

    How many primaries remain and how many delegates remain unassigned?

    What can we do?

    • Vote for Bernie and the most progressive down-ballot candidates in upcoming primaries.
    • Urge voters you know to do the same.
    • Phonebank  for Bernie and other progressives via Our Revolution and/or volunteer for Once Again, a new political action committee supported by The People for Bernie, Progressive Democrats of America; and others dedicated to progressive wins. (Pro tip: you can use 00000 as your zip code to register with these groups or use your U.S. zip code.)

    Let’s ensure the largest possible number of delegates secure the reforms and policies we need to win in November!

    Petition the DNC for a Green Platform

    The DNC Environment and Climate Crisis Council has proposed a very ambitious $16 trillion plan to combat climate change (https://www.dncclimate.org/the-platform).  It aligns well with proDA support for a Green New Deal.  Adrianne George, DPCA DNC member and founding member of the Council, encourages us to write messages in support of  the proposal to the Council's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/DNCClimate/) and sign its petition to tell the Democratic Party 2020 Platform Committee to adopt the proposal. It only takes a minute. Please consider signing, commenting that you are associated with the Progressive Caucus of Democrats Abroad, and share the petition widely in your social media network.

     

    NOTE: Democrats Abroad is not responsible for any use of your personal data by the third party service that created this petition. You should verify the petition site's privacy rules.
