As activists, we know how crucial the November 6th Mid-term elections are for our futures. Every glance at the news brings new outrage and feelings of despair. We also know that the best way to combat that helpless feeling is to do something to fight back.
But what can we do now? Well, you don’t have to lead the whole parade to be an activist! The most valuable work we can do right now is to reach out to each other! Democrats Abroad is making an extra push to have our members personally call fellow members and remind them to register to vote.

It is not too late, we still have hundreds of calls to make to reach all DA Germany members! You can choose from the “DA Germany Non-Berlin” or the “DA Germany-Berlin” campaign in the DA CallHub and talk directly to other DA members reminding them, not only to register to vote and request their ballot but to join the local chapter or precinct next meeting and events.
DA uses an online system that lets you make no-cost calls from your computer. There is even an on-screen script for you to use. Please click below for a step-by-step guide on how to get started. Even 5 quick calls from each of us will go a long way in powering the blue wave that will transform Washington in November! Give it a try! Sign up for phone banking.

We’ve marched, we’ve phonebanked, we’ve registered and we are ready to pop our ballots into the mailbox and hope for that blue wave on November 6th.
But then what?
Join the Stuttgart Women’s caucus as we travel by train to Berlin for an all-day workshop that will help us re-focus, re-vitalize and re-empower us all for the fight ahead!
We would like to get a large group together to make it more fun and more economical for us all.
And we are especially hoping to get a men’s group together as well!
Step 1: RSVP for the actual event in Berlin by clicking here
Step 2: RSVP below or on our facebook page so that we can get an idea of numbers coming from our region, and make group reservations.
We can work out shared hotel rooms and possible homestays as well.
Step 3: when we know who’s coming we will work out details by pm/mail
Our current phonebanking campaign to call all our members ends at the end of the month. To kick off a final week of (hopefully) productive calling, we'll be gathering at a member's house in Essen Rüttenscheid to make some calls, eat some cake, and talk about what else we can do to help take down the Republicans and President Trump.
