  • Biden-Harris Progress Report #7: Is It Now or Never?

    As we asserted back in July: Infrastructure negotiations likely will lead to make or break legislation for climate change mitigation, millions who are skeptical about our two-party government, and Democrat prospects for the midterms. Since then, our Democratic caucuses in the House and Senate have been unable to deliver. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and Build Back Better Act remain stuck in limbo, perhaps just two votes short of success. Join members of proDA to learn more about and discuss the status of the negotiations, the prospects for passage, and the consequences of further delay. We will advocate for action, urging all of us to intensify our efforts. Time is short and so, too, is the patience of those whose needs are not being met!

    Please RSVP for the Zoom link.

    proDA "Next Steps" Meetings


    Thanks to the many activists who participated in our monthly meeting on October 9th 2021.  We discussed what we can do to deliver for the planet, working families, and all who count on us to do just that with a truly big and bold Build Back Better Act, the Freedom to Vote Act, and much much more. Our momentum is surging to work toward progressive victories in 2021, 2022, and beyond.

  • Oktoberfest Celebration: Online Beer Tasting

    Despite Oktoberfest being cancelled again this year, Democrats Abroad Germany has just the thing for you to celebrate: an online beer tasting!

    DA Germany will gather online on Saturday, October 30th at 7pm CEST for the 13th Annual Democrats Abroad Oktoberfest Extravaganza! Instead of meeting in our usually reserved gallery seats, we will meet online from the comforts of our home for an online beer tasting.

    Our online Oktoberfest ticket (€46) includes:

    • 5 beers 
    • 1 tasting glass
    • Professional moderation and guidance during the tasting in English from Vagabund Brauerei

    The tasting will last approximately 1-1.5 hours. The beer and glass will be sent to you prior to the event from the tasting company. These tasting packages can only be sent to addresses in Germany and EU member states. We encourage other country committees to join in on the fun, but please note that if your shipping address is outside of Germany, ticket costs are €51 (an additional €5 is added to the ticket price to account for shipping costs).

    To reserve your tickets, you must complete this registration form (click here to open the form). In order to receive the beer kits in time, you must RSVP by October 11, 2021. The tasting will be held on Zoom and we will send participants the meeting log-in information 48 hours before the event.

    **Please remember that Democrats Abroad may only accept donations from U.S. citizens.**

    An Oktoberfest Prize Draw will also take place throughout the two Oktoberfest events. Click here for more information.

    Candice Kerestan's 2021 Birthday Fundraiser


    As many of you know, Democrats Abroad has been a big part of my life since I moved to Germany seven(!) years ago, and it’s remarkable what the organization has accomplished in that time! This past election cycle, we engaged Americans abroad like never before and delivered decisive votes in races across the United States.

    But as they say, “after the election is before the election”, and it’s important to me that we continue setting up Democrats for success in 2022. As I start this next year of my life, I invite you to join me in making a contribution to Democrats Abroad, an organization near and dear to me.


    Donations are made to Democrats Abroad (Democratic Party Committee Abroad) and not to any candidate for Federal Office.

    Donations to Democrats Abroad are not tax-deductible.
