We are the official arm of Democrats Abroad in beautiful Mexico. Our goal is to inform and encourage every American citizen in Mexico to register and vote in US elections and play a role in the political process back home in the United States. We invite you to visit our website and join us across the country as we work to regain the Congress and win the White House in 2016. We will assist you with registering to vote and keep you informed on the issues that impact Americans living abroad. We have active chapters across Mexico in Costa Banderas, Mazatlan, Lake Chapala, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico City and we are growing all the time.

    Movie Meet - Reuniones de Cine

    We’re back to our new schedule of MOVIE-MEET in Guadalajara where we introduce movies on a variety of subjects sure to pique your interest and opinions. The movie this time is Pride.

    Estamos de regreso con el nuevo calendario de Reuniones de Cine en Guadalajara donde presentamos películas sobre temas variados que de seguro serán de su interés y los motivarán a la reflexión, esta vez presentaremos PRIDE.

    PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It's the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers' families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all. (Rotten Tomatoes review) 

    PRIDE está basada en una extraordinaria historia real. Es el verano de 1984, Margaret Thatcher está en el poder y la Unión Nacional de Mineros está en huelga. Esto motiva a un grupo de activistas homosexuales y lesbianas con sede en Londres a recabar fondos para apoyar a las familias de los huelguistas. Inicialmente son rechazados por la Unión, pero el grupo identifica un pequeño pueblo minero en Gales y se lanza a llevar su donativo en persona. A medida que la huelga continúa, los dos grupos descubren que trabajando juntos logran una unión más fuerte para ambos. (Reseña de Rotten Tomatoes)

    Since it will be lunch time, you’re invited to bring something to share to eat and a serving utensil (whatever you'd like!) as well as what you would like to drink. We'll provide paper plates, cups, flatware, and napkins.  Each attendee donates $20 pesos to use the salon and AmSoc’s big screen, but we will not be using the kitchen.

    Dado que la función será a la hora de la comida los invitamos a llevar algo para compartir (¡cualquier cosa que se les antoje!). No olviden traer cubiertos para servir, así como sus bebidas. Nosotros tendremos platos desechables, vasos, cubiertos y servilletas. Cada asistente hace un donativo de $20 pesos por el uso del lugar y la pantalla de AmSoc pero no tenemos acceso a la cocina.

    Hope to see you there! 

    ¡Esperamos verlos allá!
