COP 21 Panel at American University of Paris

On November 9, Dems Abroad France held a panel discussion about the climate change conference (COP21) to be held in Paris November 30 – December 11, 2015. The audience greatly appreciated the marathon tour de force of the panel experts on subjects that ranged from climate projections, the ocean, renewable energy, agriculture diet, entrepreneurial activity, consumers, and backstage at COP21.

Guns vs Abortion

On Oct. 3, Facebook user Brian Murtagh posted a quote that imagines what it would look like if a man trying to buy a gun had to jump through the same hoops as a woman who wants an abortion. While the author of the quote and its origins are unknown, the comparison it makes is incredibly timely. (click below to read more!)

A Tribute to Barbara Tucker from Louise Meyers and Democrats Abroad France

On September 10, in a room filled to overflowing at the restaurant in the heart of Paris where Barbara hosted the monthly meeting of the group she created, The Political Forum, a place and a space for people in Paris of all stripes, to express their political opinions, often wise, often vociferous and always informed. Many of us came this time to share our memories of the woman we knew and were touched by in so many ways.
