First Black Caucus Meeting & possible upcoming events

Dear Democrats Abroad Black Caucus Friends,

A big thanks for all those who came out last Sunday to our first Democrats Abroad Black Caucus meet-up!  
The first meeting was very productive and we encourage you to share your talents and experience to ensure further progress and success.

Marc Castagnerea Dem. Abroad, Hamburg team head, gave us a small history of the Democrats Abroad in Hamburg.
Candice Newton told us about her new leadership of the Young Democrats.

We discussed possibilities of involvement & unity with other Black Democrats Abroad.

Possibilities are the inviting of speakers, for example: Michelle Alexander (bestseller of The New Jim Crow)
or Darryl Davis (who dialogues with KKK members into giving up their robes)

Some of us will be doing research pertaining to these possibilities and also concerning gun control issues, Me Too Movements here in Germany and Black Lives Matter Germany.

Our main issue of course, is getting people abroad to “Get out the vote!”

For this cause, we are suggesting combining a Juneteenth picnic / barbecue at the Planten & Blomen with a Get Out The Vote Booth on the nearby bridge.
The Juneteenth event will hopefully take place on June the 24th at 13.00. Everyone should bring their favorite "picnic baskets" to share. Family members are cordially invited to attend.

Those from the Booth action are cordially invited to join us after their event.

We will send out more updates as soon as we can.

Please feel free to pass this message on to other People of Color who are US citizens!
We do have a facebook page for members to give information.
