40] – Mike Fox for Progressive Democrats of America [info@pdamerica.org] is holding on Wed., June 1 at 9 PM ET for an Organizing for Victory Call, another progressive win! Something that's been a bit under the radar with the news cycle is the fact that PDA-endorsed candidate Jamie McLeod-Skinner won her primary for U.S. House against entrenched incumbent Kurt Schrader in OR-05! Jamie was outspent four to one, with outside corporatist groups dumping over $2 million in for Schrader in their futile attempt to stop Jamie's solid progressive messaging on the evils of corporate spending buying elections, and the need for real change that addresses the concerns of her constituents.

50] – BoldProgressives.org [info@BoldProgressives.org] needs you on Thurs., June 2 at 7 PM ET to meet and hear from Donna Edwards who was the Squad before the Squad.  RSVP at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcqd-6urzwoGt2TJ9T6eB5FAgMAMlDxAzyv. After the horrific tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, Donna Edwards made it clear what Congress must do immediately: "To do list: background checks, assault weapons ban, ban high capacity magazines. Civilians don’t need tactical military weapons of war. Full stop."

 Donna Edwards served in Congress after defeating a corporate Democrat incumbent during the Iraq war era in 2008. She then stepped away in 2017, and is now coming back stronger than ever for re-election against a corporate, establishment Democrat. She is ready to serve Maryland’s 4th district and the American people. A staunch progressive, she would regain all of her House seniority and be a top leader in the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
