    Watch the Film Legalize Equality

    The Equal Rights Amendment resolution passed unanimously in Tokyo where we committed to do whatever we can to help get the ERA ratified.  See the resolution here.

    Watch the video "Legalize Equality."  This 30-minute video gives an excellent overview of the Equal Rights Amendment and why it is critical to be ratified.  

    You can watch the video until 31 December 2019.

    To receive the streaming link and password, click RSVP and you will receive an email with the information in it.

    Feel free to share the link and password to DA members that want to view it.  However, please do NOT post the link and password on the internet in any way.  Only Democrats Abroad has access for this private screening and we need to honor this special access given by Equal Means Equal and Heroica Films.

    Eat Drink & Be Scary: Join Democrats Abroad Germany for Halloween Costume Party and 2020 Fundraiser.

    Halloween is not as scary as a second Trump term, so please come out and support our fundraiser. All funds raised will go directly to our DAG Get Out The Vote efforts for 2020! We want to reach every voter here in Germany, but only you can help us achieve that goal. Everyone is welcome. Non-American citizens tickets must be purchased by an American.
