    Political Framing: Building Bridges in Divided Communities

    Join us to hear Dr. Dustie Spencer guide us through how to use the tool of “framing” to bridge Democratic messaging to a larger and often sceptical constituency of voters.  Dr. Spencer has pointed out that “Republican framing is very efficient, but framing an issue doesn’t need to be a lie.”   It can be highlighting a less important aspect of an issue, as Republicans do with citing “national security” as threatened by a more humane policy that offers a path to citizenship for undocumented workers.    

     Dr. Spencer teaches Global Studies as a visiting Assistant Professor at Pusan National University, South Korea.  She earned her PhD from the University of Edinburgh where her studies focused on transnational activism and social movements framing. 

     During her talk, Dr. Spencer will offer an overview of how frames work to impact our opinions and thus voting habits.  She will suggest ways that Democrats can effectively listen to the narratives of those around us and structure an effective response.  Dr. Spencer notes that listening to the grievances of our friends and families can help us identify which frames they are using.  Once their frames of reference are clear, we can use them to connect on their key issues so Democratic policies can resonate with them. Spencer cites human rights as an issue where campaigns in this field have become excellent at stressing the universal human rights of all humans as an important and critical frame to the success of global social movements today. 

     After Dr. Spencer’s presentation, there will be time for questions, so do email you questions in advance to [email protected]

    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! 
    $10—40 calls   $25—100 calls   $100—400 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.

    Donations will be going to the Democratic Party Committee Abroad (Democrats Abroad) and not to any candidate for federal office.

    Over 9 million Americans live outside of the United States. Democrats Abroad is working to ensure that as many as possible vote in November, and that Democrats win up and down the ballot. 


    We are phoning members, running social media ads, and mailing potential voters in order to win in November.


    And our Get Out the Vote campaigns work. In 2016, the number of Americans abroad who voted was 50% higher than in 2012 and in 2018, the number of voters tripled compared to 2014.
