  • Black History Month Film Screening: GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER (1967)

    Topic: Film Screening: GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER (1967)

    Time: Feb 6, 2022 03:00 PM Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna

    On January 6, 2022, the groundbreaking actor Sidney Poitier died at the age of 94. The first black actor to win an Academy Award for best lead performance, he transformed the way black people were portrayed on screen. 

    In addition to his acting career, he had cultivated a deep friendship with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and developed relationships with student activists connected to the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).

    The death of Sidney Poitier marks the passing of an icon whose art touched millions of lives across generations and whose work helped break down the structures of exclusion in Hollywood. But Poitier's legacy is pivotal for other reasons. Though rightfully celebrated in his life and at his death for having achieved many racial firsts — America's first Black movie star, matinee idol, and Oscar winner for Best Actor — Poitier contributed much to social transformations taking place far beyond the movie screen.

    To honor his memory and celebrate his life, we will screen the film “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”. Afterward, we will have a discussion.

    We hope you can join us for this classic film. RSVP Today!

    Look Up! ECCC Launch Event

    Democrats Abroad new Environment and Climate Crisis Council (ECCC) cordially invites you to our inaugural event on Sunday, January 23, 2022, at 9:00 AM US Eastern Time / 3:00 PM Central European Time.

    Climate change, environmental degradation, and diversity loss are currently existential problems facing the US and every nation on this fragile planet. The Democratic Party and Democrats Abroad are harnessing efforts to shape and advocate for policies and solutions to meet these challenges, with a focus on environmental justice. 

    We are honored to have the Chair and founder of the Democratic National Committee’s Environment and Climate Crisis Council, Michelle Delgado Deatrick, to speak at this first event and help shepherd us on our journey.

    Additionally, we will discuss the structure of the organization and how we are moving forward. Everyone will have the opportunity to go into breakout rooms for a discussion. The ECCC advocates for bold climate and environmental policies and solutions within the global Democratic community. We would like to engage each of you in volunteering to augment our collective power.

    RSVP today for the official launch of our council and the opportunity to learn more about what we do and how YOU can help!

    To submit questions in advance, please email: [email protected] 

    Please support our fledgling council and efforts to get out a green Democratic vote by donating.

    Equality for My Heroes

    Most of my heroes are women. My mother, an artist and writer, possesses the most adventurous, curious and brilliant mind I've ever known and inspires me unendingly as I travel through life. My wife, a professional violist, is easily one of the boldest, most exciting musicians I've had the pleasure to hear perform live; she gives me the drive to achieve my best in my own musical career. Among those who influence me from afar are the likes of Greta Thunberg, Malala Yousafzai, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Cara Santa Maria. Women have had an unequal effect on the person I am today, and it's high time they are no longer treated unequally in our otherwise modern country. Equal treatment is the least we can ask for and we should settle for no less. Let us delay no longer. Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment immediately! Oklahoma voter, German resident.
