We will be talking about what we can all do to bring about change,
plans to take back Congress, and have a bit of a banter. Come join us!
Looking forward to meeting up with everyone on the night and watch this space for more specific details about where in the Hotel we will be meeting. The Aurora run food and drink specials from 5.00pm-7.00pm so feel free to arrive early and enjoy what's on offer.

August Political Pub Night
Hot politics and cold beer smack in the middle of Stuttgart!
Here is another great chance for brand new and prospective DA members to get to know us a bit, for long-time members to re-engage, and for all of us to jump in to the on-going discussion on how to mobilize the resistance in our region.
This is also your last chance to participate in our DA Resistance Summer postcard Action.
As always, your non-American friends and family are welcome to join in the fun!
Please do RSVP to let us know you are coming!
Join us for an evening of drinks and good company. This will be our Chapter's first official pub night, and we hope for it to become a lasting tradition. There is an "entry fee": complete one postcard to a legislator on a current topic of importance.
Come join us for some food and discussion about current political issues in the U.S., the future of the Democratic Party, and the role we as Democrats living abroad can play in retaking state houses, the House, Senate, and eventually the White House.
In lieu of the Wiesbaden / Mainz August Meeting we will meet at the Rheingauer Weinwoche for an evening of wine tasting and "light" political discussions"
We'll meet an hour earlier - 6 p.m. - in front of the regular meeting restaurant, the Andechser im Ratskeller http://derandechser-wiesbaden.de/
Zürich Democrats Abroad and Action Together Zürich will host a public call-in to our US Representatives this Friday: now is the time to unequivocally stand against white supremacy, Nazism, hatred, and bigotry of all forms and to stand up for equality.
