Hello! Happy Saturday and Democrats Abroad Day!
This is the second annual DA Day, which celebrates all our members and what we do to excite and motivate voters around the world.
In honor of our day, we would like to introduce you to some of our leaders for the 2019-21 term!
Welcome to Democrats Abroad Geneva!
DA Geneva is a chapter of DA Switzerland, the official country committee for US Democrats living in Switzerland. Watch this space for upcoming announcements of meetings and events - we have events planned throughout the year, and encourage anyone interested in participating to get in touch.

Democrats Abroad - Geneva
Join us for Pizza in the Park! A fundraiser for Democrats Abroad Switzerland, hosted by Anne-Shelton Aaron, Peter Butterfield, and Laura Messenger.
Join your hosts and fellow Democrats for a welcome back from holidays and a kickoff to the final push for getting out the vote and changing our leadership in Washington! Delicious pizza and soft drinks served in a beautiful outdoor setting by the lake. COVID precautions will be observed. Bring your face mask, something to sit on, and a bottle of your favorite tipple if you desire.
All proceeds from this event will be used to get out the word to Americans in Switzerland of their voting rights!
Voter registration/ballot request forms and information will be available too!
CHF 30 minimum donation, includes pizza and soft drinks
Parc Mon Repos, on the Geneva lakeshore near the World Trade Organization. We’ll send you more specific instructions on how to find us closer to the date.
For September, we will be reading and discussing Utopia for Realists: The Case for a Universal Basic Income, Open Borders, and a 15-Hour Workweek by Rutger Bregman. This was originally written as a series of articles in Dutch for the virtual journal De Correspondent and has since been compiled and translated into several languages. It offers a critical proposal that it claims is a practical approach to reconstructing modern society to promote a more productive and equitable life.
Additional information about this (and future) event(s) can be found here.
In mid-August, Sam will distribute a poll to see if people want to meet in person or on Zoom, and whether this will make a difference to you attending. Send him an email if you would like to be included.
