  • DA-Spain November Newsletter 2021 - Black Friday’s not the point

    Message from DA Spain Chair

    It’s November, and we Americans are looking forward to celebrating this month’s revered national tradition — Black Friday! Seriously, though, Thanksgiving is upon us, and it’s time to focus on the three lessons that it can teach us. And I think we Democrats in Spain – indeed, Democrats across the globe – would do well to reflect on them.

    First and foremost we have a lot to be grateful for. Are things perfect politically? Of course not. We hold both houses of Congress by razor-thin margins, and the loss in the Virginia gubernatorial race was a painful blow. But Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are in the White House, which beats the alternative by miles, and we’ve got thousands of volunteers across the globe who are ready to roll up their sleeves for the midterms. Is our country perfect? No, and that’s distressing; it’s distressing because we believe that the USA has a lot to offer us and the world. So there is much to be grateful for.

    The second lesson is that we know how to be together, even when we disagree on some issues. This coming week, families of all stripes will gather at the Thanksgiving table and try hard to be nice to each other. Similarly, Democrats can – and do – work together for common goals. We need that kind of unity, that kind of “gather around the table” mentality, in our work as Democrats. Let’s focus on the many, many issues and concerns and dreams that unite us. This is how we win. This is how we progress.

    The third and final lesson of Thanksgiving is that, historically, it’s a seriously mixed bag. European settlers prospered in America, but they did so at a terrible cost to indigenous people, people of color, and lots of others we could name. But we Democrats are at least willing to acknowledge both the good and the bad in our country’s past and work from that to craft a better future. If we work together, we can build on our successes and try to deal with our failures.

    So happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and let’s all raise a fork to what we can accomplish together. And, on a personal level, please know that I’m grateful for all of you.

    Kathy Tullos, Chair, DA Spain

    Let us, then, fellow-citizens, unite with one heart and one mind. Let us restore to social intercourse that harmony and affection without which liberty and even life itself are but dreary things.”

    Halloween Festival and Trick-or-Treat

    On October 31, Democrats Abroad Valencia drew a crowd of more than 360 people to a spooky evening of family fun and trick-or-treating. The packed house was entertained by a magician, played in a slime lab, and bounced away their cares in a castillo hinchable. Professional face painters created masterpieces, while hairdressers sprayed funky colors onto the heads of excited children. Adults were treated to an artisan fair, with beautifully handcrafted products, and a fortune teller. 

    Arts-and-crafts tables were well-attended by children, who created fall décor under the supervision of adult volunteers. There was delicious Indian food, and drinks of all kinds were on tap. Democrats Abroad manned a table selling coveted American goodies such as Stove-Top Stuffing, Kraft mac’n’cheese, Rice Krispy Treats, and Goldfish crackers. 

    Topping off the fun was an old-fashioned spooking of the streets, as costumed children trick-or-treated. With maps in hand, parents guided their children to businesses that had joined in the festivities and to DA volunteers who stood in the streets of Ruzafa with bags of goodies. 

    Parents shared their heartfelt thanks for the opportunity to share this American childhood celebration with their children. Everyone looks forward to next year’s Halloween Festival. 

    DA Spain Chair Kathy Tullos and her husband Mark drove to Valencia to help us make this event a success. Thank you, Kathy!

    DAV would also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the 60+ volunteers who helped to make an unforgettable evening for Americans in Valencia.

    DA Valencia followed this month’s in-person chapter meeting with an expanded public town hall, where volunteers were invited to discuss the most pressing organizational needs, and signed up to assist with events aligning with their personal interests. The event drew 26 attendees to Plaza de La Virgen, where we enjoyed breakfast and chatted about politics, Thanksgiving, New Year’s Eve, our monthly Coffee Mornings, and the neighborhood Voter Registration Drives which will begin in January. DA Valencia officers took turns explaining upcoming events for which they had taken the lead, followed by coordinated break-out sessions where attendees could sign up for specific volunteer tasks. We thank everyone who attended and volunteered to donate time to DAV.

  • Americans Abroad Caucus Launched

    Maloney Launches Americans Abroad Caucus in the 117th Congress

    Renews Efforts to Reform Tax Laws for Americans Living Overseas

    WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney is proud to announce the 117th iteration of the Americans Abroad Caucus with Representatives María Elvira Salazar (R-FL) and Dina Titus (D-NV) joining Maloney as co-chairs. Maloney also announced the introduction of two pieces of legislation, the Overseas Americans Financial Access Act and the Commission on Americans Living Overseas Act. These bills will help American citizens living abroad who are unfairly and disproportionately burdened by existing tax laws.

    Millions of Americans, including military personnel and civilians, live and work across the world. Although they live overseas, many of these U.S. citizens continue to vote and pay taxes in the United States. Whether or not they work for American businesses overseas, they help increase exports of American goods and services because they traditionally buy American goods, sell American goods, and create business opportunities for U.S. companies and workers. Their role in strengthening the U.S. economy, creating jobs in the United States, and extending American influence around the globe is vital to the well-being of our nation.

    Last month, the Caucus led a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken requesting that the Biden Administration prioritize vaccinating Americans abroad while still working to fight COVID-19 at home.

    “Americans living and working abroad are directly impacted by federal policy and it’s long past time that the federal government listened to their concerns,” said Rep. Maloney. “I’ve heard from countless constituents who have faced problems related to voting, immigration, access to financial institutions, and taxation. My goal with the launch of the Americans Abroad Caucus is to better understand these issues and be better equipped to coordinate with these communities towards more robust representation in Congress.”

    “As the Congresswoman for Florida's 27th District, I represent thousands of American citizens who live and work abroad," said Rep. Salazar. "From deciphering complex tax laws to ensuring they have adequate healthcare access, Americans abroad face a unique set of challenges. I am honored to co-lead the Americans Abroad Caucus and look forward to continuing to serve as a voice in Congress for Americans living overseas."

    “I’m honored to serve as co-chair of the Americans Abroad Caucus for the 117th Congress,” said Rep. Titus. “The millions of U.S. citizens who live and work overseas often face uniquely onerous tax burdens along with challenges ranging from banking and travel issues to health services and voting. This bipartisan Caucus provides an important forum to address the issues faced by Americans abroad and ensure they’re being provided appropriate representation.”

    “ACA is pleased that Representative Salazar will be joining the Americans Abroad Caucus as Republican Co-Chair and working alongside Representative Maloney and Representative Titus, the Democratic Co-Chairs of the Caucus. The Caucus is an important voice for the community of Americans living and working overseas. ACA looks forward to continuing to work with Representative Maloney, Representative Titus, Representative Salazar and all the members of the Americans Abroad Caucus on bringing issues important to the community to the attention of Congress and the Administration,” said Marylouise Serrato, Executive Director of American Citizens Abroad.

    “Democrats Abroad is delighted to see the Americans Abroad Caucus grow in numbers and in profile. Americans abroad face challenges in a great many areas - taxation, voting, access to COVID vaccines, US government agency and consular support - that require Congressional attention. We are grateful for Rep. Maloney's leadership on the Caucus and on these legislative initiatives that bring focus and solutions to our underserved community. Rep. Dina Titus has been a wonderful friend, constant advocate and greatly valued champion for Americans abroad for many years. We are excited to have her in the position of Caucus co-chair along with Rep. Maria Salazar. We look forward to getting to know Rep. Salazar and working with her to address our issues,” said Candice Kerestan, Democrats Abroad International Chair.

    Background

    In the 110th Congress, Congresswoman Maloney cofounded the Americans Abroad Caucus, which she now co-chairs with Representatives María Elvira Salazar (R-FL) and Dina Titus (D-NV). The purpose of this bi-partisan caucus is to provide a forum for discussion of the issues that are important to overseas Americans including citizenship, census, voting, banking access, and taxation.

    The Overseas Americans Financial Access Act directs the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to exclude from Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) reporting financial accounts held by American citizens in countries where they are bona fide residents. This bill eliminates the unintended and excessive reporting burden imposed on overseas Americans by FATCA, enabling them to more easily open and maintain private bank accounts with foreign financial institutions (FFIs).

    The Commission on Americans Living Abroad Act creates an Executive Commission comprised of a 10-member bipartisan panel to examine the concerns of U.S. citizens living and working abroad. The Commission would analyze, report on, and make appropriate recommendations to address the effects of activities, laws, and policies of the federal government on Americans citizens living overseas.

    Letter from the Editor

    There is not a day that goes by that the Global Women’s Caucus is not aware of the immense threats to the rights of women and girls all over the world, however the ability to act on every development, or appreciate every advance, is difficult to do. Awareness doesn’t always involve an act, per se, but rather also a clear intention to be well informed. By gathering information from reputable sources and understanding how to express that information, we can all be warriors against mis and disinformation. As we celebrate holidays, once again in person with our loved ones, the GWC invites you to practice awareness as we both recognize the threats to women all over the world and discuss ways to alleviate these threats.

    This GWC newsletter is taking on a different look to accommodate our growing caucus, but some elements still remain. Check out our Artist’s Corner and read ERA excerpts written by our members.

    DA-Spain October Newsletter 2021

    Message from DA Spain Chair and Vice-Chair 

    It’s October, and for Americans that means Halloween. I’m all about the candy, but the horror and fright parts, not so much. In fact the last scary movie I saw was “The Shining” in the summer of 1980. I went to the movie with my roommate, and she and I slept with the lights on for two weeks after that.

    So I know scary when I see it, and I see it in the news every day. My current nightmare is the polling numbers in the Virginia gubernatorial race. The Republican in this race is a Trump darling who refuses to state his positions on important issues such as women’s reproductive rights. He does think it’s a shame that Virginia expanded health coverage to more of its citizens, and that Virginia needs restrictions on voting despite little or no evidence of voting fraud in the state. Despite these derelictions, Youngkin and the Democratic candidate, former Governor Terry McAuliffe, are virtually in a dead heat at this point.

    Democrats Abroad is working hard to elect McAuliffe, supporting him with social media initiatives, direct mailings, and phone banking. Many of our members in Spain have joined in this effort, and today I’m asking you to do the same. If you’re available to help, please reach out to us at [email protected]. We need you!

    Thanks, Kathy and Carlos

As we organize ourselves to protect our reproductive rights from right-wing politicians or unite in recognizing Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we will honor the female authors who shook the writing world with a month-long literary festival.

  • published DA’s new Global Disabilities Caucus in News 2021-09-30 04:24:57 -0400

    DA’s new Global Disabilities Caucus

    Mike Lindell’s highly criticized symposium in August failed to validate his belief that Biden did not win the election, but it did showcase attendees’ reluctance to engage with facts. One speaker began his remarks with, “…the CNNs of this world, you guys need to stop fact checking this and start reporting it.” Journalists and news organizations have a professional obligation to fact check and it is right that they do so, but facts alone don’t necessarily help to refute conspiracy theories and lies. Using facts as the main tool to convince someone that Covid vaccinations protect rather than harm, for example, can push conspiracists further into their own belief.  

    This is because human beings have a built-in confirmation bias; we tune out facts that don’t confirm our existing beliefs.  Even when we present a climate change denier with geological evidence that today’s climate change is driven by humans and not part of a natural cycle, it’s highly unlikely to change their minds. It’s not because deniers are too dumb to understand the science; rather, a fact that doesn’t confirm what someone already believes tends to be either disregarded or rationalized away. Often it is the more intelligent who are the best at rationalizing a fact to fit their belief. Our brains resist evidence that goes against an opinion we’ve already formed. 

    It’s not just our minds that resist belief-opposing-facts, our hearts do too. Peer pressure isn’t just powerful on the playground or behind the gym, it has a big influence as adults on which opinions matter to us, and the opinions that matter determine the facts that matter.  Political bodies have even used social media, enabled by bots (automated software) to successfully persuade voters in elections. The good news is that who we see as the “cool kids” can be influenced and can change

    Storytelling, centered around facts and truth, based on deep commonalities is a very effective way to help people want to hang out with the science nerds rather than the kid with the biggest car.  You can show your uncle the figures proving cats kill more birds than windmills, or you can concede that windmills do kill some birds. Good, truthfulf storytelling can affect who we feel close to, and in turn whose opinions and what facts matter to us. It can dampen the flames of conspiracy theories and help seeds of consensus sprout in fresh ground.

    DA-Spain September 2021 Newsletter

    Message from DA Spain Vice-Chair 

    September has been an intense month, with a lot of work by our DA Spain members and other DA colleagues across the globe, who strove to reach every last California voter living abroad, but… hard work pays off, and we are excited that Governor Gavin Newsom received the overwhelming support of California voters in the recall election. California still shines blue! Special thanks to all the DA Spain members who worked tirelessly to achieve this goal. Next up: several important state elections in November in Virginia, New Jersey, Ohio and Florida. The work never ends, and we are always looking for help from within our DA Spain membership.

    I’d also like to highlight that this month (September 15-October 15), we are celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month. We are proud to honor the Latino culture and heritage that has been firmly woven into the fabric of our country’s DNA. To recall President Lyndon Johnson’s 1968 Proclamation 3869 which established National Hispanic Heritage Week: “It is with special pride that I call the attention of my fellow citizens to the great contribution to our national heritage made by our people of Hispanic descent—not only in the fields of culture, business, and science, but also through their valor in battle.” As Americans living in Spain, we cannot forget that we live in a country with a strong historical connection to the US, and this is a perfect month to honor, understand and learn about the Latino culture and heritage, and the great contribution and influence that Latinos and Hispanics have had on our country. We are very happy to welcome this Hispanic Heritage Month and to participate with our fellow members of the Global Hispanic Caucus in their special slate of activities.  

    Although Get Out the Vote campaigns remain DA Spain’s main mission, we also advocate for other important issues including climate change, tax reform for overseas Americans, immigration, human rights, gun control, expanding voting rights and other topics that affect all Americans abroad. If these issues matter to you as well, please join us and let’s advocate for change together! So if any or all of this sounds interesting to you, please contact us at [email protected] or [email protected]. We need your time and your talents! And thank you in advance for your participation.

    After all, “every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.”  - Pres. John Fitzgerald Kennedy

    Calls to Action

    Women’s rights are human rights, except in Texas

    US democracy is entering a frightening, dystopian new era. The US Supreme Court’s tacit, and 24 hours later, explicit, endorsement of a horrific new antiabortion law in Texas portends a new kind of governance at the state level – which is where all the anti-democratic (note the small “d”) action is happening these days – but that will almost inevitably have national implications.

    The loss of ability to make one’s own healthcare decisions is appalling, and yet this may not be the most horrifying aspect of the new law, known as SB8. The new Texas abortion ban includes a novel enforcement method, whereby ordinary citizens are essentially deputized to enforce the law and are financially compensated for doing so. As Justice Sonia Sotomayor explained in her dissenting opinion, Texas lawmakers “fashioned this scheme because federal constitutional challenges to state laws ordinarily are brought against state officers who are in charge of enforcing the law.” By extension, if no state officer can enforce the law, it is unclear whether anyone can be sued to block it. Under this evil design, and with the blessing of Mitch McConnell’s Supreme Court, SB8 will be enforced by vigilantes and bounty-hunters. And the slipperiest of all slopes: who’s to stop other states from copying and pasting this legislation and enacting it as well, or from using the same vigilante model to enforce other controversial laws going forward?
