    Power, Sex and #metoo: Now what?

     

    “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything... . .Grab them by the p---y. You can do anything.”

    Sexual Harassment will be an important issue driving women to vote in 2018 and beyond.

    The list of power players keeps growing.  Thousands of reports of sexual harassment on #MeToo keep coming in.  The risks are rising.  
    But where it leads remains to be seen.  

    Join us for a panel discussion on our responsibilities and options as a party, and how we can best mobilize voters around this important issue.

    • What can we do to reassure women voters that despite recent bipartisanship shown on this subject, the parties could not be more different in their approaches to women’s issues?
    • How can we empower male voters to see gender violence as a men’s issue too?
    • What legislative, structural and cultural changes need to be made?
    • What are our next steps?

    All are welcome to join in this vital conversation!

    10 euros covers refreshments

    Payment can be made at the door, but you must RSVP to add your name to the guest list, as space is limited.

  • March to the Ballot Box / GOTV Event Frankfurt

    Frankfurt_Women's_March_2017_-_Democrats_Abroad.jpg

    In January, 2017, Americans worldwide marked the inauguration of the 45th president of the United States. Deeply concerned that our core values were threatened, many of us joined the Women's March - the largest single-day protest in U.S. history which was organized as a worldwide rally on January 21, 2017.

    One year later, Democrats Abroad remains strongly committed and continues to affirm the promotion of our constitutional rights now threatened under President Trump.

    Democrats Abroad Germany, Wiesbaden/Mainz Chapter, in conjuinction with the Frankfurt Chapter and the Global Black Caucus have organized "March to the Ballot Box", a voter registration drive to commemorate the Anniversary of the Women's March in Frankfurt.

    Join us at the same location we met at last year before the march - at the Yours Australian Bar, Frankfurt.

    Bring your friends along and request your absentee ballots to take back this government in 2018!

  • published DA Heidelberg Chair Candidate Statement in News 2017-01-22 17:04:01 -0500

    DA Heidelberg Chair Candidate Statement

    My name is Nancy Schimkat. I’m 54 years old, and made Germany my adopted home in 1997 when I joined my now German husband. We have two teenaged children. I have a M.A. in Political Science and a M.A. in Applied Linguistics. Besides running the household, I teach business English part-time and have also been an active member of our local school parents’ association for several years.  I’ve been a member of the DAHD Chapter since 2009.

    Democrats Abroad is a way for us ex-pats to stay in touch with goings-on back in the U.S., find support among like-minded people, and it provides a chance for us to actively support the party and its candidates come election time. We are now entering uncertain times as Donald Trump takes over as the 45th U.S. president, and both houses of Congress are under Republican control. Now, more than ever, we need to find ways to help the Democratic Party regain its foothold in Washington and in the fifty states. As a group, we should continue to share ideas and educate ourselves about current issues. In addition to our DA activities here in Germany, we should also be writing to our representatives, communicating with our local parties stateside and encouraging more participation in the political process. With the internet at our disposal, there is a lot we can do from overseas. With this in mind, I ask that you give me the chance to work as Chairperson of this fantastic Heidelberg group.

    Self-Nomination for Hamburg Chapter Chair

    A new chapter in American politics will begin in a few days’ time.  The preservation of democratic values will become more important than ever, within the United States and abroad.  As a resident of Hamburg for over ten years, I have been able to watch the city become ever more internationally present.  Home to a few thousand other Americans, Hamburg has a great deal to offer to the US political conversation and the direction of the Democratic Party.

    I’m 32, from Philadelphia. My parents and sister live there, while my daughter is a “hamburger Deern”.  Family, friends and my financial career allow me to feel at home on two continents.

    Over the past year, I have become actively involved in the Hamburg Chapter of Democrats Abroad Germany, helping out with events such as GOTV and the upcoming March for American Democracy.  These and other events have been part of the Hamburg Chapter’s development during the election campaign.  As Chapter Chair, I want to ensure that that development continues, with more democrats living in Hamburg becoming more involved.  I am also committed to making our presence as Democrats living abroad known.  I believe we can start to achieve this by taking part in the political debate, on issues domestic and international.

    I am confident in the people responsible for our Chapter’s successes and their commitment to its future.  It is a Chapter I would be honored to lead, and to which I pledge that same commitment.
