    Salzburg Meet-up

    While living in Austria since 2010, I have enjoyed interaction with fellow Americans through involvement with Democrats Abroad. The meet-ups, which I began attending in Salzburg, were a great way to hear about and share diverse opinions with each other. I hope you'll join with fellow Democrats Abroad Austria members and others who are interested in discussing political/current events in the USA. Anyone is welcome. 
     
    Our summer meet-ups on the third Friday of the month – July 17, August 21, and September 18 – will be casual discussions over dinner and/or drinks starting at 5:30pm. That leaves enough time for you to enjoy other Friday night plans you might have.
     
    If you cannot come this time but what to be in the loop about future Salzburg activities, also feel free to let me know that as well.

    TBA in Linz, Austria

    Linz Meet-Up

    While living in Austria since 2010, I have enjoyed interaction with fellow Americans through involvement with Democrats Abroad. The meet-ups, which I began attending in Salzburg, were a great way to hear about and share diverse opinions with each other. Now that I live in Linz, I am interested in starting a meet-up here to connect with fellow Democrats Abroad Austria members and others who are interested in discussing political/current events in the USA. Anyone is welcome. 
    Our summer meet-ups on the third Saturday of the month – July 18, August 15, and September 19 – will be casual discussions over dinner and/or drinks starting at 5:30pm. That leaves enough time for you to enjoy other Saturday night plans you might have.
    If you cannot come this time but what to be in the loop about future Linz activities, also feel free to let me know that as well.

    Solidarity Sundays: Democracy is Action

    If you have one to two hours a week, we have a democracy that could use your help. We need to get ballots into the hands of every eligible overseas voter. Join Solidarity Sundays July 26th and learn to phone bank. Attend our training in-person, or remotely if you‘re outside Vienna. In two hours, we‘ll show you what to do, and you‘ll make a few calls to try out what you‘ve learned. 

    You‘ve phonebanked in the past? This is a great way to refresh your skills. A phonebanking newbie? You‘ll love the feeling when a voter says "thank you for your call, I‘ll register right away!"

    Bring your laptop or Android Tablet + earphones with a mic

     

    June was a dark month for our democracy: Trump filled more federal judge vacancies than any president in our history — young ones and extremely conservative. If he prevails in November, he‘ll fill up to three vacancies on the Supreme Court. In the middle of a pandemic, his administration asked the Supreme Court to eliminate the ACA. The Deptartment of Health and Human Services announced they undercounted the number of children in custody by over 1,000. People filled the streets around the country demanding an end to police violence — and our President threatened them with more violence. Wherever GOP politicians are in power, they are fighting to keep Democrats from voting. Take action and help save our Democracy!
