Marisa Grimes wants to volunteer 2021-02-07 08:38:32 -0500
Have you ever made a successful change in your life? Perhaps you wanted to exercise more, eat less, or change jobs? Think about the time and attention you dedicated to the process. A lot, right? Change is hard. Creating effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of power, privilege, supremacy, and leadership is like any lifestyle change. Setting our intentions and adjusting what we spend our time doing is essential. It’s all about building new habits. Sometimes the hardest part is just getting started. The good news is, there’s an abundance of resources just waiting to empower you to be a more effective player in the quest for equity and justice.
About the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge
- For 21 days, do one action to further your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity
- This plan includes suggestions for readings, podcasts, videos, observations, and ways to form and deepen community connections. Suggestions are in the following categories:
- Choose one activity per day to further your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity.
- Diversify your habits by doing some of each.
- Use the tracking chart provided here to stay on course. You can download the editable spreadsheet or a PDF for printing.
- We think understanding white privilege and white supremacy is a powerful lens into the complexities of doing social justice work, so we’ve focused our resources on that specific issue.

Global Pub Quiz Fun(draiser)
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)

EMEA Deputy RVC
I volunteer my time to Democrats Abroad because it is SO important that every American, no matter where in the world they reside, have the opportunity to remain politically active, see their values reflected in the US government, and cast their ballots from wherever they are. As someone who has lived overseas for 20 years, this mission remains close to my heart!
