Many thanks to the DACZ volunteers who came out and phone banked with us - calling members to let them know about the upcoming Global Presidential Primary Tuesday March 1 & March 8th at The Globe, Pstrossova 6, from 3pm to 7pm. For anyone not in town those days, remember that you can also participate by downloading your ballot here.
Thanks to all who came out last night to CET to watch the 6th Democratic Debate. Despite the snow and fre-e-e-ezing temperatures, we had a good crowd and everyone enjoyed the conversation and the opportunity to meet new members.
Don't forget the upcoming phonebank and pizza party on February 10th! RSVP for details please.
Join Democrats Abroad to attend Prague's own sister event for the Women's March on Washington D.C., Saturday, January 21st.
One of over 270 sister events of the Women’s March on Washington, the Love Trumps Hate rally will take place on President Donald J. Trump’s first day in office. We expect over 1 million marchers across the globe to take part at demonstrations in all 50 US states, as well as in 55 global cities on six continents, from Tokyo to Sydney, Nairobi to Paris, Bogotá to Prague.
An official sister rally to the Women’s March on Washington, LOVE TRUMPS HATE is a statement of shared values, delivered to our leaders in the United States and the Czech Republic, across Europe, and beyond.
This rally is a step towards unifying our communities to create real, grassroots change, in support of the work of journalists and the free press, of environmental activists and their concern for our imperiled planet, and of the peaceable relationships between nations. We will demonstrate peacefully and from a diversity of political vantage points, recognizing that there is no true peace without justice and equality for all.
