Join us for tax lunch power hour! This is an informal drop-in open discussion on US taxes, we'll talk about debunking tax myths, and discuss self-filing, or choosing an accountant.
This event is for DAUK members in the UK, but everyone is welcome.
This event will not be recorded so everyone feels able to share and talk freely.
Although there is no cost to attend, we strongly recommend a $10 donation so that DAUK can continue to provide events like this in the future.
Email [email protected] to be added to the DAUK Tax Committee mailing list.

The GWC Reproductive Justice Team is launching a project to promote voter registration under the theme Reproductive Justice for ALL.
As you certainly know, the rights of all women to choose when and if to start a family are being taken away with over 26 States prohibiting or restricting the right to abortion during the first trimester of pregnancy even in the cases of rape, incest and the mother’s and/or the fetus’ health. Texas has empowered vigilantes to sue everyone and anyone aiding and abetting abortion once the fetal heartbeat can be heard (eg at approximately 6 weeks and before most women know they are pregnant).
We cannot allow this to continue particularly with Roe v Wade in peril and the Women’s Health Protection Act stuck in the Senate.
Our project is a video launch via YouTube. We are asking all DA members to make a short (60 sec) video explaining why the right to abortion is absolutely necessary. If you come from a State where it is practically impossible to obtain an abortion, you can speak about the discrimination against minority and poor women whose lives are in jeopardy and who cannot travel. If you come from “good States” such as MA, CA, NY for example, you can speak to the injustice of access depending upon where you live. Make sure you mention in the video VotefromAbroad.org for expat voter registration and vote.gov for non expat voter registration.
We believe that many of our voters will be motivated to register when we roll out the videos.
Here are a few subjects that you could choose for your video:
- If you live/vote in a country that has “good” reproductive freedom laws, you could refer to the country and the liberal law(s) and how lucky you are to be in that country and how unfair it is for American women LIVING IN THE US who can’t benefit from such laws
- If you live/vote in a US State that has good reproductive freedom laws, see above. And you can say that living in a “bad” State is discriminatory since women in “good “US States have rights that you are denied.
- You can share a personal experience. You don’t have to use your name or even mention where you live. The videos will be anonymous unless you do give details.
- You can make a statement about women should have the right to control their bodies. Period. There is no justification for the government to decide when, how or even if women should have children.
If you can’t think of anything to say but still want to make a video, feel free to contact Salli at [email protected]. She will set up a call and walk you through some ideas and we can help you make the video.
Here is a link on how to make a video:
