PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS of AMERICA
PA 12th Congressional District Chapter
(formerly 4th Congressional District Chapter)
A Grassroots Political Action Committee
“Healthcare is a Human Right”
“A Job is a Human Right”
Statement of Purpose: We are Democrats seeking to lead our party in the movement to preserve and restore the progressive policies of the New Deal and the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. As progressive Democrats we strive to promote politicians who advocate for the common people and for minimizing the influence of corporate power and wealth in government.
We are committed to build a just and democratic America at peace with the world. We believe our nation’s greatest need is to redirect our resources from war and destruction to building a future that provides for the well-being of every American. Our security as a nation also depends upon a future that conserves and protects the natural environment that is essential to all life.
