Remembering Tim Carpenter; Onward Awards and Celebration
Tim Carpenter made an impression everywhere he went, especially in Washington, DC. We would like to remember Tim and at the same time show how his memory has made it possible for us to move "Onward" and not only continue the work that he started but begin to expand it.
On Tuesday, October 20th join us at the DNC at 7pm as we honor our Congressional heroes, and the grassroots and organizational activists who made Tim's "Onward" a reality. PDA was originally one organization and now there are two (PDA and PDAction). Where we formerly worked only at the Federal level, we have extended our outreach to both state and local activism. We have also expanded our technology to empower local activists to truly move the progressive agenda forward.
Our Congressional Legislative Awardees have introduced the legislation that we need to get our country back on the right track on mass criminalization, voting rights, equal rights, expansion of Social Security, Jobs, Healthcare, the environment and prosperity.
Our Grassroots Awardees lead chapters, organize Congressional and now state letter drops, have started new organizations and worked to introduce legislation - all of them volunteers. We would like to recognize the following leaders:
|Dan O'Neal||Randy Shannon|
|Mary Ellen Marino||Valencia Mohammed|
|Russell Greene||Stephen Spitz|
|Andy Shallal||Joe Libertelli|
Our Organizational Awardees re-invigorated old ideas, built broad coalitions and reminded us that the good old-fashioned ideas of equality, fairness and economic prosperity are more relevant and important than ever.
Please join me on Tuesday evening as we honor the teamwork that has moved us onward. Big hug!
