Join us for a letter writing party. We will be writing emails and tweeting to our congressional representatives and senators.

Please join us for an enjoyable evening of food, drink and lively political discussion at a new venue! We are having our first meeting at Zum Achter (aka Heidelberger Ruderklub 1872), which has a much bigger room to accommodate our growing attendance. We will give you reviews of the first DA dinner meeting in Karlsruhe as well as the March for Our Lives Email-Writing event and the current status of gun control legislation. Plus, we’ll talk about some of the burning issues you may be itching to talk about.
Further information about public transportation and parking: Public transportation access is pretty good, Bismarckplatz is only ~5 mins on foot. Also, bus stop Bergstraße is directly in front of the building (bus line 34).
There's also a parking garage (Parkhaus Brückenkopf Neuenheim) adjacent, as well as a limited number of parking spots alongside Uferstraße.
Please RSVP and bring a friend!
Join us for good food and drink, good camaraderie, and lively political discussion! We'll also discuss plans for Get Out The Vote activites in Mannheim this year. For those of you who live closer to Mannheim than you do to Heidelberg, come on by. Please RSVP so we can tell the restaurant how many to expect. Feel free to bring a friend!
The Goldene Gans restaurant is just a few-minutes walk from the main train station, so it's very central.
Democrats Abroad will have 4 runners in the SAS Half-Marathon and 8 runners in the 3.1 K Henkel Team run. Come on out and support us and cheer us on! Also, OUR RUNNERS ARE LOOKING FOR SPONSORS (eg. 1 or 2 Euros per Kilometer) to fund DA Germany for upcoming events and Get-Out-The-Vote activities. Please go to this link to sponsor and for more information.
The race starts at Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage (9:15 for the Half-Marathon and 10:00 for the 3.1 K) and ends at Universitätsplatz. We'll probably meet for lunch afterwards. More details to come on that. If you want a T-Shirt, you can pick one up at I-am-Design at Hauptsrasse 152, but go there before race day if you can.
Celebrate the 4th of July with Democrats Abroad! Bring a side dish or dessert to share and your favorite item for the grill. We will provide plates and flatware and non-alcoholic drinks, but feel free to bring your own beer or wine. In addition to food, we will have our annual reading of the Declaration of Independence and some other activities. Have a look at our photos from last year - water balloon tossing, folk music and a pub quiz. Let's see what transpires this year . . . more to come.
Please consult Google Maps ahead of time to help you find us if you've never been to the Eppelheimer Grillhütte before, or send Nancy an email and she'll explain it.
