    DEMOCRACY IN ACTION!

    #DAinDC - including our own Annie Tanampai!
    US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand  addresses #DAinDC on her race for the Democratic Presidential Primary
    US Senator Doug Jones spoke to #DAinDC via video, as Alabama went down in history for having the most restrictive abortion laws in the country..
    #DAinDC ws also attended by many of us via WebEx...thanks to our members' generaus donations!!

    This weekend, many of us are voting in European and local elections. We also commemorate Memorial Day in the US, honoring those who gave their lives to defend the democracy that we so often take for granted. Last weekend, that democracy was in action, as Democrats Abroad held three days of global meetings in Washington, DC. Thanks to the DA Travel Fund, one our members, Annie Tanampai, was able to attend, and DA funded many more of us participating from afar via WebEx.

    But fewer than 1% of DA members donate to help us defend this democracy. Please help us change this. Donate Now to Democrats Abroad on a global level. DA provides the resources for us to do what we need to do - from paying for phone calls to our members to social media advertising that helps us get out the vote among the millions of overseas Americans in Belgium and around the world. Our donations really do make a difference, as you saw in our Treasurer's Report at our March Annual General Meeting. So please make a donation now.

    I also encourage you to join our Global Caucuses. You can read more about them on DA’s website, as well as meeting the newly-elected International Executive Committee. The Caucuses are open to all allies of the various groups so consider signing up, following them on social media, and even volunteering.

    Here in Belgium, our events continue into June, thanks to our many volunteers!

    • June 6th 6:30pm - Schaerbeek Pub Social - RSVP here
    • June 12th 6:30pm - Brussels Film Night - Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 - RSVP here
    • June 27th - Extended ExCom Meeting & Debate Watch Party - pencil in the date and stay tuned for more details in our next email.

    If any of you outside Brussels would like to organize a similar event and help us reach more Americans beyond the capital, please do get in touch with us! This is the time for us to raise awareness, ahead of our January 2020 voter registration drive.

    THE 2018 MIDTERMS IN BELGIUM

    Our heartfelt thanks to all of our volunteers this election season. Whether it was organizing a Pub Social, film night, panel discussion or protest march; posting articles, pictures, or commentary; phone-banking, visiting voters at home, answering last minute calls and emails…you did it all and it paid off! Your hard work helped us reach even more Americans this year, whose votes from abroad were critical in taking back the House, holding 6 of those 10 red state Senate seats, and flipping 7 governorships.

    A special shout out to the Leuven gang who helped register American exchange & graduate students at the university twice this year…they enjoyed a well-deserved drink on Election Night!

    In Brussels, we watched Fox, CNN, and MSNBC until 5am in the same warm setting where we saw many a presidential debate in 2016.


    If you’d like to help out in 2019, do get in touch - we’re still on the lookout for those 11,000 Americans registered in Brussels and we could use all the help we can get!
