Studopolis, a political forum for young people and university students, will be hosting the event "Road to 2024: USA, Deutschland und die Wahl" on April 15th, 2024 in Hamburg. Among other things, the event will feature a podium discussion and debate that will be joined by our chapter Communications Coordinator Candice Newton.

The main event will be a 45 minute podium discussion, followed by 45 minutes of questions to the panel from the audience. Candice Newton will be on the stage together with a representative from Republicans Overseas, as well as participants from media and politics.

The currently planned schedule for the evening is:

  • 5 PM: Doors open
  • 6 PM: Welcome
  • 6:10 to 7:10 PM: Julius van de Laar "The Race to The White House: Von der Taktik bis zum Triumph"

The event is open to the public. Join us for what promises to be a fascinating evening, and lend your moral support as we share our Democratic values and winning electoral strategy.

We'd appreciate an RSVP, not for the event but so that we can have a sense of how many of our chapter members will be there.
