Chapter Meeting, June 16th, 2018

Thank you to everyone who attended our most recent chapter meeting.  It was great to also see several members make it all the way from Bremen.  Plans for upcoming Get Out The Vote events and phonebanking were discussed (you can find more details here if you would like to get involved).

We also broke up into groups to discuss aspects of the current Democratic platform, and how we think the Party should be approaching them:  immigration reform, gun control, and environmental sustainability.  The exercise was very productive, and resulted in a number of ideas we think should be part of the platform.

We would like to to continue with this discussion beyond the meeting.  If you are interested in being part of a group that analyzes, discusses and works to put together goals for these and other policy topics, let us know.  This kind of work will certainly allow us as a chapter to provide our members, the press and the public with clear statements about what we as Democrats living abroad consider important.  We can also envisage a next step of reaching out to the DNC and proposing our ideas for consideration.

If would like more information about getting involved with this project, or would like to see the notes from the meeting, drop us a mail at [email protected] .
