Taxation Advocacy and more

This week’s Tiny Action supports our universal health care story campaign. Members have sent in almost 300 stories so far, but we very much welcome more. Special thanks to the Medicare4All team - Bob Kerr, Kent Getsinger, Gordon Gaul and Siera Burtrum, who have been big helps in this initiative.

The fundraising team is pulling out all the stops getting ready for next month’s big fundraising push. The theme of the month is “Give to Win” and we’ll be honoring that theme with sponsorship programs to suit a whole spectrum of interests. For more details or if you’re interested in helping out, get in touch at fundraising@democratsabroad.org.

It’s a lively week in taxation news. While Carmelan Polce digs in to the Americans Abroad Taxation survey data in preparation for the Taxation Advocacy webinar on September 29th, 9am DC Time, she and the rest of the Taxation Task Force are also reviewing the just released tax reform framework. It’s the latest information on tax reform plans by the Trump Administration, the House Committee on Ways and Means, and the Senate Committee on Finance designed to save corporations millions of dollars. Join the call on Friday to hear more about what’s in the plan and how it might affect Americans abroad.
