    Climate Caucus

    Welcome to the Democrats Abroad Germany Climate Caucus!



    This is a space for everyone who realizes that the changing climate will be the narrative of our lifetimes (and that of our children's and grandchildren's as well). Here you will find events, ideas, and information focused on what we can do to create the changes needed for humanity to confront and conquer this existential challenge.

    We are a new group but our mission is clear and over the coming months our members will be curating this space so that we can all learn about some of the biggest challenges of our time.

    We welcome you to come back regularly, join the conversation, and share feedback! You're invited and encouraged to reach out to us to provide content and ideas for this blog in order to keep it as interactive as possible. Contact the DA Germany Climate Caucus at: [email protected].

    Earth Hour 2022

    All Are Welcome to join our caucus as we prepare to TUNE-IN and TURN off for Earth Hour 2022!

    What is Earth Hour? 

    Earth Hour is a global event organized by WWF. The event takes place annually to encourage people around the world to turn off all non-essential lights and electrics for an hour. The event will happen between 20:30 to 21:30 on the 26th of March 2022.

     The goal is to help raise awareness around the globe of our energy use, consumption, impact, and long-lasting effects on the environment. Earth Hour is a movement to help our future and encourage urgent change around the world & our goal is to get as many people to participate during that hour and take some time just before to remind ourselves how LITTLE things can make a BIG difference and have some fun!

    Our Plan

    You are welcome to join us the hour before as we share with our attendees a bit about the history of Earth Hour,  get to know one another a bit better & have some fun with a Photo/Memory Game, and let our imaginations run wild with a bit of brainstorming for our upcoming themes for Earth Day 2022.

     

     

    Can’t join us but want to join in? Visit https://www.earthhour.org/ to find out how you & your family can take part!

    Progressive Caucus

    Democrats Abroad Germany Progressive Caucus - ProDAG

    The Germany Progressive Caucus (ProDAG) is building a space for education and action on political issues from a progressive perspective, focusing on shared values of transparency, accountability, and equality while also recognizing the American people’s diversity of experience.

     

    Under the motto “Educate, Agitate, Organize,” ProDAG always translates education into action. We advocate for a greater understanding of important concepts such as systemic racism, economic and labor equity, climate action, environmental justice, the military-industrial complex, healthcare access and reform, the corrupting influence of unrestrained money in politics, and more. We take what we learn together with other caucuses and fight for greater equity within Democrats Abroad, the Democratic Party, the U.S., and across the globe.

     

    Are you interested in getting to know the Progressive Caucus? Contact us at [email protected]. We’d love to get to know you!

    Womens Caucus

    Shocked, sad, scared, determined..

    Hit the Ground Running by Malaika Kusumi

    Shocked, sad, scared, determined: just a few of the one-word responses to the Academy Award documentary nominee Dorothy Fadiman’s and Emmy/ Peabody documentary winner Susan Koch’s documentary films When Abortion was Illegal: Untold Stories and Roe at Risk, shown at the DAG Women’s Caucus meeting held on March 27. 

    The intimate discussion rounds between participants underlined and amplified horrifying realities:  eradication of abortion rights is just the tip of the iceberg setting a dangerous precedent to the loss of other human rights, it is a human issue not a female issue. The common consensus reached: we have to act; we have to do something, and every little contribution has a tremendous impact. 

    To this end the women’s caucus is asking for everyone’s support. Make a short 1–2-minute video about why these rights must be protected, your views on the topic or your experiences. You do not have to be a woman to participate as this affects us all. There are many tiny actions you can take. 

    March is over but the fight has just begun. Check out the global women caucus YouTube contribution, give it a like and share it on your media platforms. You can sign up for June 18 women’s hybrid event (live in Paris) bring some friends …again non-gender based! Everyone is welcome and everyone is needed. 

    Over 29 states now restrict or outlaw abortions. Put a stop to the madness. Defend our democracy. Stop accepting things that you think you can’t change and start changing things that you cannot accept.

    Hit the Ground Running : Stepping up to the Plate

     

    Hit the Ground Running : Malaika Kusumi

    Stepping up to the Plate: Currently the DAG Women’s Caucus (DAGWC) is enthusiastically underway with the Women’s Global Caucus in preparation for the National Women's History Alliance's theme of Women's History Month 2022: Providing Healing, Promoting Hope. 

    The event will be on Sunday, March 27th at 5 p.m. and will focus on the topic of reproductive rights: where we were, where we are, where we want to be and what we can do! Reproductive rights are hanging in the balance, losing those is only the tip of the iceberg. 

    The DAG Women’s Caucus will initiate Project 3-I  Outreach:Inform, Inspire, Involve as a pre-June event promotional activity. In honor of Women’s month  a virtual presentation of Forgotten Women, Women We Should Know and Women We Can’t Forget will be presented to the Middle Hessen Precinct on March 14. 

    The DAGWC plans to visit as many German chapters as possible with the high hopes of engaging women and their talents for the June Anniversary celebration.  Please reach out to [email protected] to set a date for our visit to your chapter.  And don’t forget to RSVP for the March 27th event!

    We are good, but together we are better.

    DA Germany Veterans and Military Families Caucus

    "Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it." — Unknown

    Democrats Abroad Germany (DAG) honors the men and women of our armed forces, and is committed to representing their best interests in the democratic process. Government policy must reflect the interests of those who serve or have served honorably, those who support them overseas and their families. In order to support these efforts, DAG established the Veterans and Military Families Caucus (VMFC) in 2018 at the AGM in Hamburg. This caucus works with the leadership of Democrats Abroad Germany and the Democratic Party Committee Abroad (DPCA) to achieve mutual goals, and to assure caucus members that the Democratic Party is fully supportive of their needs while serving (and after service) on behalf of their country.
