    DA Germany Reads A Promised Land

    55361205._SY475_.jpg

    Join us as we discuss "A Promised Land" by Barack Obama.

    The book is a riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making, from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy.

    In the stirring and highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from a young man searching for his identity to the leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.

    The book is available in hardback, e-book, and audiobook format from many booksellers.

    We look forward to discussing this interesting book with you. RSVP to receive the Zoom link.

  • proDA Book Club: Black Reconstruction in America - W.E.B. Du Bois

    Date:Monday, February 22, 2021
    Time: 12pm - 1:30pm ET (Washington DC time)
    Book: Black Reconstruction in America - W.E.B. Du Bois

    Book Discussion

    For February, the Pro DA Book Club will honor Black History month and replace the planned book The Force of NonViolence: An ethico-political bind, Judith Butler, 2020 with 3 chapters from W.E.B. Du Bois’s Black Reconstruction in America. (Chapter I: The Black Worker; Chapter XVI: Back Toward Slavery; Chapter XVII: The Propaganda of History).

    All are welcome to attend the February proDA Book Club meeting on February 22, 2021, 12-1:30pm Washington DC (ET) time.  Join us!  

    “This book is a history of the Reconstruction era first published in 1935. It marked a significant break with the standard academic view of Reconstruction at the time which contended that the period was a failure and downplayed the contributions of African Americans. Du Bois argued directly against these accounts, emphasizing the role and agency of blacks during the Civil War and Reconstruction and framing it as a period that held promise for a worker-ruled democracy to replace a slavery-based plantation economy.”

    Participants need to know that if there are access, affordability, etc. problems for a book/books, they should contact co-leaders, John Esteban Rodriguez and Betsy Ettorre (prodabookclub@democratsabroad.org) who will help them with the listed books.

    Inauguration Event - Calling All Volunteers

    "Now is when the real work begins. the hard work.  The necessary work.  the good work."

    Vice President-Elect, Kamala Harris

    On November 7th, 2020, Kamala Harris, the newly elected Vice President of the United States, stepped up on stage and began her acceptance speech by stating, “...that America’s democracy is not guaranteed. It is only as strong as our willingness to fight for it, to guard it, and never take it for granted.”

    For the first time in many people’s lifetime, this election has displayed that action makes change — that voices, when united, are loud. Therefore, the Global Women’s Caucus of Democrats Abroad is accepting the torch that Vice President Kamala Harris has delivered to the people, and we are extending the responsibility of action to you.

    Join us on January 23rd at 10 am EST (US and Canada) for a celebration of the newly inaugurated Biden-Harris administration, as we share our plans for the coming year and present the many and varied opportunities for volunteering that the Global Women’s Caucus offers world-wide. Each of our Global Action Teams will give a short presentation on plans going forward and suggest ways that members can help out.

    We will then move to smaller break out sessions where our leaders will answer your questions, explain how members can establish local women’s caucus groups, and hear your own creative ideas for new ways our caucus might support our members and do the good work.

    Now that we are putting four long years of backward movement behind us, we are looking forward to the opportunity to address the many issues still facing women in the United States and to advance an agenda which will benefit all. To do that we need to refine our goals and develop plans which will be informed, realistic and action-oriented, and we need your help.

    We know you want to continue to be a part of the change that delivered Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House. The real change will happen as the Biden-Harris administration begins, working with Nancy Pelosi and, we hope, a more productive Senate, to push their legislation in Congress. The Global Women’s Caucus will be focused on making sure women remain central to American domestic and foreign policy, however we need volunteers to make that happen. We are a global network of action driven individuals, working together from all over the world. We need you to help build our movement stronger. We need you for the vital fight that is ahead.

    Please RSVP below and join us for a fun and productive session!

    D4D_Ballot_Week.pngDialing for Democracy is a calling marathon
    and global Democrats Abroad fundraiser.

    To win in November, we need to increase voter participation from abroad, which means making sure that overseas voters receive their ballots by September 19 (date mandated by federal law) and that they are sent back to the United States on time. 

    Given the Trump Administration's relentless attempts to weaken a fundamental pillar of our democracy — voting — we can't take any risks this year when it comes to our ballots. [Mobile device users, please scroll down to donate!]

    Generous sponsors like yourself will help Democrats Abroad reach all members from September 22-24, shortly after ballots have been sent, to confirm that they've received theirs, and inform them on how to promptly return them to their respective voting jurisdictions.

    DONORS: If you are sponsoring a specific caller, BEFORE you select an amount, write the caller's name in the box at left!

    Donate $50 and you’re sponsoring 200 calls!

    $250—1000 calls   $500—2000 calls   $1000—4000 calls

    Democrats Abroad will be making 100,000s of calls this fall, and your contribution will help make this outreach possible.

    Thank you! We appreciate your support!

    Don’t forget to check in on how the calls are going on Facebook Live on September 24 on the DA Germany Facebook page.

    Global Pub Quiz Fun(draiser)

    Online-DAGlobalPubQuiz-NL.jpeg

    We're looking forward to meeting your team -- or matching you with other Democrats around the world.

    For each round we'll send out a google form for you to fill in the answers. Volunteers will grade each round and the winning team(s) will receive never-ending fame and fortune.*

    Ninety percent of the funds raised from this event will go directly to GOTV. Did you know that just $5 USD can reach 125 voters?

    The other ten percent will go to DA's travel fund. As a young-ish volunteer without disposable income I can tell you the #1 issue with getting involved at a higher level of commitment is being unable to afford to travel to the regional and global meetings. It's important to show up in person as it helps build relationships we need to keep up the good work. We want to have a big tent party and that perhaps means helping our younger or income-sensitive volunteers to be part of the organization. 

    Date: Saturday May 30th  |  Where: RSVP for ZOOM link!
    Quiz Start: 7:30pm (CEST / Paris time)

    For any questions about Democrats Abroad Pub Quiz, please contact DANL's Andrew Tucker: andrewdemsabroadnl@gmail.com
