  • Biden-Harris Progress Report #5: At the Intersection of Economic Recovery and Renewable Revolution

    Is the American Jobs Plan an infrastructure plan, economic recovery plan, or the roadmap for a renewable revolution? Join us to learn more about its intention to integrate all three. We will review its legislative status and consider what improvements are necessary to ensure it triggers a revolution more profound than the industrial and digital revolutions for the benefit of all. We also will feature the work of our leading progressive organizations and representatives in guiding us to action. The stakes are very high and the clock is ticking!

    Global Virtual Pride Marathon 2021

    Join Democrats Abroad LGTBQ+ Caucus for a day long Pride Celebration as we share our stories. View the schedule here (or below).

    Pride 2021: Sharing Our Stories / Equality Matters

    Democrats Abroad is celebrating June Pride month with a series of events, including a webinar marathon on June 20th, featuring speakers and events. 

    The webinar marathon is being organized and hosted by the DA LGBTQ+ Caucus, with the aim to educate Americans about issues impacting LGBTQ+ people and opportunities to provide greater protection through policy and legislation. A key focus will be on engaging members to share their stories. 

    Through the webinar, members will have the opportunity to learn how to effectively engage their congressional representatives to support equality legislation, including the Equality Act, which would provide protections in employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs and jury service to LGBTQ+ people, and immigration reform.

    11.30-12.00

    Let's talk about AAPI queer identity through a  discussion of Alice Wu's film The Half of It! A Netflix original movie, The Half of It received rave reviews from critics and tells the story of teenage Ellie Chu, who writes letters to her crush on the behalf of her classmate Paul in a queer retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac. As Paul and Ellie's friendship grows, the film explores the isolation of the intersection of queer and immigrant identity as well as the meaning of friendship.

    The aging LGTBQ+: Screening of Gen Silent

     

    Gen Silent is an award-winning documentary that follows six LGBT older adults in Boston, Massachusetts over a year as they navigate the paid and unpaid care system. Gen Silent discovers how oppression in the years before Stonewall still affects generations of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people with feelings of distrust and dangerous isolation. As we witness the challenges that

    these men and women face, we also see hope as each subject crosses paths with an impassioned professional trying in their own way to change an entire care industry.
