    Online Democratic Yoga with Gretchen


    This is a recurring event.

    Yoga is so popular today for its many benefits it offers the mind, body and soul. But maybe you've never tried yoga. Or maybe you've tried and thought it wasn't for you? Yoga is for everyone, and this Radiant Warrior vinyasa flow set is perfect for you. If you are already a confirmed yogi, come along for a slow flow that gets back to the basics. 

    If you have the following, please bring it to class: a yoga mat or some kind of mat that doesn't slip, a couple of yoga blocks or thick books (Harry Potter style), a strap or fabric belt or scarf, a small pillow or cushion or towel, and some water to drink.

    Gretchen has done yoga for many years and is completing her 200-hour online yoga teacher training with the Yoga Farm Ithaca. She is chair of Democrats Abroad Grenoble, national Volunteer Coordinator, and teaches English at the Université Savoie Mont Blanc in Chambéry. She votes in Maine.

    This event is A Feelgood Fundraiser for Democrats Abroad France, and benefits our critical 2020 "Get Out the Vote" Efforts this Fall. Any contribution is welcome; 10 EUR per person is suggested. Please give here. Thank you! 

    DISCLAIMER: Yoga is a physical exercise that can include some strenuous activity. Before engaging in any physical exercise or activity, all participants are advised to consult with a medical professional to ensure that they are capable of participating in any exercise routine or class. If you are pregnant or have any major illnesses, you are strongly urged and advised to seek the advice of a medical professional or specialist familiar with your personal situation before beginning any exercise routine or class. Democrats Abroad France (DAF) is not an official yoga class provider nor a medical adviser and cannot advise participants as to the risks involved in participating in a yoga class at home outside of the in-person supervision of a certified yoga teacher. Accordingly, all participants in home-based Zoom yoga classes led by DAF or any DAF members are thus participating at their own risk. DAF will not be held responsible for any harm or injuries endured during said classes.

  • Getting Out the Black Vote: A Conversation with Horace Small and the Diversity Caucus/GBC

    A Conversation with Horace Small
    and the Diversity Caucus of DA France

    and the Global Black Caucus

    Horace Small is Executive Director of Union of Minority Neighborhoods, and a legendary organizer/activist (and personality!) in the Boston area for decades who famously made then-governor Mitt Romney take back his plan to scrap the office of affirmative action for the state

    “UMN is rewriting the rules of black politics in Massachusetts, mobilizing some of the state’s poorest citizens to push for their share of the pie. They work for equity, not just equality.” – Boston Magazine.

    Today, UNM runs the Black Ballot Power initiative — a non-partisan national campaign to increase Black voter turnout focusing on critical areas of the country.

    Why Not Voting Must Not Be an Option!

    • In 2016, nearly half of all eligible voters (46.9%) did NOT vote — over 108,000,000 people
    • Half of all non-voters were non-white
    • Two-thirds were under age 50
    • One-quarter earned less than $30,000 a year.

    Black Ballot Power Initiative Will

    • Convince non-voting Blacks that their vote matters
    • Get them registered and to the polls

    Join this call with DA France's Diversity Caucus and DA's Global Black Caucus to hear from Horace Small about his work with UMN in Boston, his long and storied career in community organizing and working with neighborhoods, and how he and other community activists and organizers in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio and New York are working to help make sure the black vote turns out and is counted. 

    While there is no donation requirement to attend, we hope you’ll consider a donation of $5 or $10 to help Democrats Abroad reach hundreds of thousands of Democratic voters abroad. Thank you for your support!

    Phonebanking with the Youth Caucus!

    Join Saturday Phonebanking with the Youth Caucus!

    This is a recurring event.

    Every Saturday the DA France Youth Caucus is hosting a virtual phonebank as we call thousands of US Democratic voters living in France to make sure they are registered and ready to vote in critical Presidential, Senate and House races this fall. We need your help. You must be a member of Democrats Abroad France to help make these calls, if you aren't already: join here.

    Get Trained with DA France
    For the 90 minutes we will walk through phonebanking using CallHub, including some new features specific to France. During the Zoom session, we can also answer questions you may have, and support each other as we call voters.

    If you have done the training, and are comfortable phone banking, then you know you can make calls from home any time, to US voters around the world — there is no reason to wait until Saturday or join our Zoom to make calls, but please feel free to come by, say hi and share your experiences calling others.

    Before Saturday
    Sign up to become a call agent with CallHub: www.democratsabroad.org/phonebanking. (It is also helpful to walk through the basic training materials on this page.)
    And please fill out our Volunteer Intake form, here.
