Presenter Background

Dr. Bill Honigman
Dr. Bill is a California State Coordinator and Orange County Chapter Leader for the Progressive Democrats of America (PDA). He also serves as a Co-Coordinator for the PDA Healthcare for All Issue Organizing Team (IOT).

Progressive Democrats of America was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and our country. PDA seeks to build a party and government controlled by citizens, not corporate elites-with policies that serve the broad public interest, not just private interests. As a grassroots PAC operating inside the Democratic Party, and outside in movements for peace and justice, PDA played a key role in the stunning electoral victories of November 2006 and 2008. The inside/outside strategy is guided by the belief that a lasting majority will require a revitalized Democratic Party built on firm progressive principles.
