Medicare For All Barnstorm Training Calls - December 2018

Take action and get training to make improved Medicare For All a reality.

Want to see all Americans get the healthcare they need?  Join ProDA and the National Nurses United for a major nationwide mobilization in February 2019.
Next step is to join one of their training calls in early December, on the 3rd, 5th and 7th.  They have agreed to help ProDA volunteers host events overseas as well as virtual actions.

If you plan to attend the training, or just want to help with ProDA’s M4A efforts, please email us HERE.

M4A Barnstorms are a great complement to ProDA’s Healthcare Stories book which will be distributed to Members of Congress, and our planned letters to the editor campaign, so a number of ProDA volunteers are participating in the training calls.  Join us and host an event where you are!

How to Call for Progressive Candidates from Overseas

 

This is it.
 
The upcoming midterms are a do-or-die moment for America and an opportunity to elect the largest group of progressive candidates ever.
 
This means we can support candidates who ran primary campaigns that only took small-dollar donations from individuals like us and are not influenced by corporate and PAC money. Candidates who support Medicare for All and getting big money out of politics.

Progressive Caucus Intro

ProDA - Working to increase transparency, accountability and fairness in policies, government and our party

Follow us on Facebook

Joining ProDA (Progressive Caucus of Democrats Abroad) adds your voice to the growing call for progressive change. You are welcome, whoever you supported in the 2016 election. You choose your level of involvement within our network of fellow citizens actively working toward an America that delivers on its promise of government truly of the people, by the people, and for the people.

ProDA is for members of Democrats Abroad (DA) who: embrace policies that will proactively advance the United States toward a society rooted in economic fairness and social, racial, and environmental justice, particularly for the most vulnerable people in our society; seek increased transparency, fairness and accountability in political processes; and support international cooperation, peace, and mutual respect.

ProDA works to get out the vote among progressive Democratic voters abroad, and engage Caucus members in advocacy for progressive policy positions.

Our actions are grounded in the belief that when candidates embrace policies that more accurately serve the interests of the majority of Americans, potential voters at home and abroad will be more receptive to Democratic “Get Out The Vote” efforts.

ProDA activities: encourages voting abroad by progressive voters; provides resources for DA members to support progressive Democrat candidates; provides education on progressive issues; co-develops unique campaigns for activism with like-minded organizations; promotes and/or organizes community service to connect our values and actions; advocates for increased fairness, accountability and transparency in the Democratic Party; seeks cooperative and productive relationships with aligned groups such as the Congressional Progressive Caucus, state-level progressive caucuses, and other organizations composed of progressive Democrats and potential Democratic voters.

Members of ProDA will be encouraged to share their needs and expectations for DA and the Democratic Party, to be proactive in DA activities, and to work toward creating positive change in America and the lives of Americans abroad by making informed voting decisions in their home states.
