Ann Graul rsvped for Biden-Harris Progress Report #7: Is It Now or Never? 2021-10-25 02:23:08 -0400
As we asserted back in July: Infrastructure negotiations likely will lead to make or break legislation for climate change mitigation, millions who are skeptical about our two-party government, and Democrat prospects for the midterms. Since then, our Democratic caucuses in the House and Senate have been unable to deliver. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and Build Back Better Act remain stuck in limbo, perhaps just two votes short of success. Join members of proDA to learn more about and discuss the status of the negotiations, the prospects for passage, and the consequences of further delay. We will advocate for action, urging all of us to intensify our efforts. Time is short and so, too, is the patience of those whose needs are not being met!
Please RSVP for the Zoom link.

Ann Graul is hosting La Lucha Continúa - Global fundraising coordinator Jeffrey Nadison 2021-10-17 15:10:09 -0400
We all get dozens of emails each week from organizations, candidates and groups asking for money - so how do you decide where to donate for greatest impact? Did you know that unlike $ given to other organizations, your donation to Democrats Abroad goes 100% to getting out the overseas vote? As a completely volunteer organization, DA has virtually no overhead or other operational expenses to cover, meaning you really do get more bang for your buck when you donate to your local chapter, country committee or Democrats Abroad global.
Jeffrey Nadison, global coordinator of fundraising, will explain the importance of donations, where the money goes and how we can contribute to this important initiative. Bring your questions!WHENNovember 09, 2021 at 8:00pmWHEREZoom

Ben Wikler has been the Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin since 2019. In his work, most recently for the progressive group MoveOn.org, Ben has played a leadership role in some of the most critical political fights of recent years—from the successful battle to save the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid, to the defense of Dreamers, immigrants, and refugees, to the rise of the Blue Wave of 2018. While working across the country, Ben has always stayed connected to his Wisconsin roots, recently working to help elect the Evers/Barnes ticket and sounding the alarm about the GOP power grab after their victory. Now the Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, he believes we can supercharge grassroots energy in every part of Wisconsin to fight for our progressive agenda, and secure Democratic victories all the way up and down the ticket for years to come. Chair Wikler will speak to us about how Democrats and Wisconsinites Abroad can help these efforts! Join us on Saturday, November 13th (time zones below), to find out how.

Ann Graul published Barcelona Dems defend women's reproductive rights in News 2021-10-03 12:14:06 -0400
On October 2, Barcelona members of Democrats Abroad and the DA Spain Women's Caucus, in collaboration with other women's groups in Barcelona, gathered at Plaza Catalunya to support the protests organized in the US by Women's March and raise our voices in defense of women's reproductive rights. A threat to women's rights anywhere is a threat to women's rights everywhere, and the uncertain future of Roe v. Wade in the US makes it increasingly evident that women and their allies worldwide must speak up and resist this attack.Read more
Barcelona chapter members had a wonderful time celebrating the 4th of July at a park on the waterfront, catching up with old friends and welcoming some new faces. It was one of our first chapter-wide in-person events since March 2020, and the excitement at seeing fellow DA members and friends was palpable. Newly elected vice-chair Rachel Mantiñán spoke about the challenges that lie ahead as we work toward the November 2022 midterms, and treasurer Hunter Roberts spoke about the importance of donating to Democrats Abroad in order to help make the magic happen again. If you have questions about donations, where the money goes and how you get more bang for the buck when you donate to DA than to candidate campaigns, please reach out ([email protected]). We are happy to provide more information about how your donations can help elect Democrats and preserve American democracy.
Our next gathering, still in the works, will be a movie viewing at an outdoor venue. Date and movie title will be announced soon, but plan loosely on a late September event. We will also be starting a postcard campaign this fall, and will be putting out a call for volunteers to print, color, address and stamp postcards to be mailed in early 2021, reminding DA members that they need to re-register every election year.
Finally, if you are not already a member of the DA Barcelona Signal group, please take a moment to join so you can stay on top of all the latest news and conversations. Click here to join.
