  • Peter Fischer: A Taste of Modernity - The Tuscan Wine Revolution

    Our Second Annual Virtual GOTV Fundraising Extravaganza is here!

    Event 2: Tuesday, May 18th at 18:30 CEST (12:30 EDT)
    Peter Fischer: A Taste of Modernity - The Tuscan Wine Revolution

                               

    Everyone loves a good Tuscan red, so wouldn't you like to know a good story behind it?
    Join us to hear historian and oenophile Peter Fischer explain how an impressive process of modernization in winemaking has led to a new breed of quality wines called the Super Tuscans. 

    Peter is currently teaching in Florence at Syracuse University, the International Studies Institute and the European Academic Program of the University of California, Florence. 

    Last year, thanks to our first series of six fundraising events and your generosity, we met our fundraising goals.  You helped Democrats take back the White House and Senate, and keep the House of Representatives.  Now we need to prepare for the 2022 midterm elections so we can win more seats in the House and Senate.  We are counting on your generous support so we can implement our voter registration/outreach, and start training our volunteer voting assistants.  This is our first event of the season and we hope you will join us!

    Support Democrats Abroad's Global Campaign to

    "Get Out the Vote"

    Over 9 million Americans live outside of the United States. Democrats Abroad is working to ensure that as many as possible vote in November, and that Democrats win up and down the ballot. 
    We are phoning members, running social media ads, and mailing potential voters in order to win in November.
    And our Get Out the Vote campaigns work. In 2016, the number of Americans abroad who voted was 50% higher than in 2012 and in 2018, the number of voters tripled compared to 2014.
    We CAN make the difference, but we need YOUR help. Please make a donation today to fund our Global Get Out the Vote campaign.
