Get together with your fellow Dems in the Geneva/Vaud region for fun and socializing, every third Tuesday of the month. Nothing fancy, just a chance to unwind and enjoy each other's company. Yes, political discussion is allowed! Drop in; no need to RSVP.
(Democrats Abroad is not a sponsor of this event. DA supports no particular candidate in any Democratic Primary. We make this information available to our members who may be interested in attending. Contributions made to this event go to the Kaine Victory Fund.)
Senator Tim Kaine (D-Virginia) will be in Geneva to raise funds for his 2018 re-election campaign. There will be a reception for him at a private Geneva old-town residence, followed by dinner at a nearby restaurant. Event organizers have invited DACH members to attend the reception at a special donation level of $200, and students at $20.18. American high-school and university students encouraged to attend! For full info and contribution levels, please see the Invitation.
On the road to the mid-term elections, it helps to understand what political "thought leaders" are saying and proposing. This group meets once a month to reflect on a recent book, and think about ways to contribute. February's book will consider a voice from the other side with Jeff Flake's Conscience of a Conservative: A Rejection of Destructive Politics and a Return to Principle. You don't have to read the book beforehand, but it helps (and this is a short and easy read).
Here's the handout flyer for this book talk.
Are you wondering how the new tax law affects Americans living abroad? Or new to (and baffled by) overseas Americans US tax obligations? Or maybe you just have a US tax question you would like an expert to weigh in on? Then come to Democrats Abroad Switzerland's talk on US taxes for Americans living abroad.
Rebecca Heid of AIT Services will be answering our questions about overseas Americans US tax obligations. If you have a particular issue or question you would like her to address, please submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is a fundraiser for Democrats Abroad Switzerland. We are asking all Americans attending to donate CHF25 or more to support our 2018 GOTV efforts. GOTV volunteers will also be on hand to help you register to vote or request your ballot for the 2018 election year.

For International Women’s Day, DA Switzerland member Anne Hornung-Soukup will present: Transports publics genevois: Challenges and Opportunities. Ms. Hornung-Soukup first came to Geneva to study. Returning to marry, she raised a family, established a career in banking and finance, and in 2016, without benefit of political background or party allegiance, became the chair of the board of directors of the TPG, Geneva’s public transportation system. She will talk about her role with TPG, her goal of increasing the number of women employees there, and her reasons for loving her job!
