Democrats Abroad Switzerland, the largest organization for Americans living in Switzerland and part of the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States, is calling for members of its Swiss delegation to participate in the Climate Change March in Bern on September 28, part of a Global Climate Strike being held in cities around the world.
“Millions of people around the globe are marching in an effort to encourage governments to find solutions to our climate crisis, and Democrats Abroad Switzerland is thrilled to participate alongside our Swiss neighbors,” said Kelli Brouillet, chair of Democrats Abroad Switzerland.
The Democratic Party is committed to fighting climate change, one of the greatest threats of our time, and believes participation in this global action, including the march, is a strategic and public way to amplify this message.
The march will begin at 14:00 CET, beginning at the main train station and will end at the Bundesplatz in front of the Federal Parliament Building. Anyone wishing to join the march with Democrats Abroad can visit our website to learn more.
Democrats Abroad is the official organization of the Democratic Party for United States citizens living permanently or temporarily abroad. The organization is given state-level recognition by the Democratic National Committee, with eight positions on the Democratic National Committee, and sends a voting delegation to the Democratic National Convention to select our presidential candidate.
