    DA RTF January 2023 Meeting

    The Democrats Abroad Reparations Task Force is dedicated to tackling economic, racial, and political injustice head on. Join us as we fight to keep the Biden Administration accountable to its own promises to address racial disparities. We intend to use our global organizing to not only push for a federal reparations commission, but to support state and local efforts, too. 
    On January 31st at 1 p.m. Eastern US Time / 19:00 Central European Time, we will be discussing recent developments in the US reparations movement, ongoing successes in reparations activism/advocacy, and further opportunities to get involved.

    The National Welfare Rights Organization 1966 - 1975

    An outgrowth of the Civil Rights Movement: Women of Color Rising to lift themselves and their children out of poverty.

    Join the Global Black Caucus for an insightful webinar, during Black History Month 2023, and learn more about the significance of the National Welfare Rights Organization and its activism and legacy which still carries on today.  

    February 11, 2023, at 10:00 AM EST / 16:00 PM CET / 23:00 HKT 

    This webinar is facilitated by Miriam Victory Spiegel, Democrats Abroad Switzerland, born in 1945 in New York City, long-time activist, Community Organizer in New York 1968 – 1980, and Couples and Family Therapist, in Zürich, Switzerland since 1990.

    During this webinar, Miriam will begin her presentation by focussing on the events that she experienced as an activist and community organizer in New York City in 1968. She will describe the theoretical basis of the creation of the National Welfare Rights Organization and its inception within the framework of the Civil Rights Movement. To contextualize, she will share a rearview mirror with us, looking back and trying to understand why so many people of color were left behind in mid-sixties America and seemed doomed to a life of poverty, limited education, poor health, and unemployment. These reflections will take us on a historical journey beginning in 1619 and ending in 1968….

    This event is being co-sponsored by the Global Women's Caucus.
