Every week it’s Activist’s Happy Hour! Did you know that our Women’s Caucus publishes a weekly calling script on the TAKE ACTION page of their website?
And every other week a new episode of the podcast series, Women to the Front, goes live!
This week both the calling script and the podcast support Senator Gillibrand's FAMILY Act. As Americans abroad, we have a unique perspective as to the importance of parental leave and family-friendly policies - and many stories as to how legislation have benefitted our lives around the world.
Listen to the podcast, then use the calling script to call your American representatives to urge them to co-sponsor the FAMILY Act - we have an essential role to play in making America a more family-friendly workplace and advocating for this essential aspect of gender equality.
New officers: L to R: Treasurer: Joshua Van der Ploeg, Secretary: Tasia Campbell, Chair: Inge Kjemtrup, Vice Chair: Travis Mooney
Several hundred members convened Sunday 19 March to elect a new slate of officers to lead DAUK. Those standing for the four officer positions addressed the group, followed by a vote via a show of hands. The Executive Committee and Voting Representatives to the Democratic Party Committee Abroad were elected via ballot. Others were elected to the Council by acclimation.
