    May 2019 Newsletter - Happy International Workers Day!

    May will be a busy month. We have a lot going on in DAG, and so does our democratically controlled Congress. Thank you for voting. Without the #BlueWave, we would not have any ability to investigate the Trump Administration.  If you haven't read the Mueller report, you can get a copy here. Take our poll on impeachment.

    On May 4th from 1:30 to 3:30 pm, our Chair Candice Kerestan and Vice Chair Kenton Barnes will hold an online "Meet and Greet." They will discuss the structure and goals of our organization, volunteer opportunities and more. All DA Germany members are warmly invited to attend. A computer/tablet with an internet connection and a working microphone are necessary to participate actively. To receive the connection information, RSVP. See you on Saturday!

    We're gearing up for 2020, and it takes a village to do all the things we need to do. Here are three opportunities to help:

    1. Take our Volunteer Survey. We are looking for volunteers in all areas.
    2. DA Germany is looking for members interested in heading our Black Caucus, LGBTQ+ Caucus, Progressive Caucus, and Youth Caucus. Find out more information.
    3. Do you have an idea? We're looking for suggestions on how we can connect with more Americans in Germany, find places to advertise, events to have and any suggestions you have to get more people to vote.  Bookmark this link and submit your ideas at any time.
