A reading group among Democrats Abroad members has taken off in the Mannheim/Ludwigshafen area! The first, and very interesting, meeting was in Mannheim, and this one will be in Ludwigshafen so as to be fair about the distance for those people living on the Pfalz side of the river. We will probably switch back and forth.
The next book up for discussion is Outliers, by M. Gladwell. If you are interested in joining us, please RSVP by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us for good food, drink and political conversation. At this meeting, taking place as the primaries get underway, we'll be looking at the candidates and what they stand for. Hopefully, this will help people who are still trying to decide who to vote for. And don't forget that Heidelberg will be a voting center for the Global Presidential Primary on Tuesday evening March 3rd and Saturday March 7th. More information in a separate event post.
Public transportation access is good, Bismarckplatz is only ~5 mins by foot. Also, bus stop Bergstraße is directly in front of the building (bus line 34). If you’re driving, the parking garage Parkhaus Brückenkopf Neuenheim is adjacent to the restaurant.
Please join Germany Black Caucus Chair, Derek Bembry, and International Black Caucus Chair Angela Fobbs for lunch at Zum Achter. We had originally planned a brunch, but with the amount of interest, and the addition of a presentation, we've had to change venues (and therefore meals).
This lunch is a chance for you to meet Derek and Angela, and learn about what the Black Caucus is doing in Germany, especially for the 2020 election. Derek's presentation will focus primarily on increasing voter turnout by focusing on youth and black voters. He will point out the opportunity in each voter segment as well as issues that appeal to both.
Zum Achter is located just over the Neckar from Bismarckplatz. Public transportation access is good, Bismarckplatz is only ~5 mins by foot. Also, the bus stop Bergstraße is directly in front of the building (bus line 34). If you’re driving, the parking garage Parkhaus Brückenkopf Neuenheim is adjacent to the restaurant.
