    Caucuses in Conversation: DAG Virtual Round Table - Defending Democracy

     
     
     
     
    Get Ready to have your say! 
     
    The Democrats Abroad APPI, ECCC and Women's Caucuses are happy to invite you to join us as we kick off our first virtual roundtable: Caucuses in Conversation.

    In order to build our caucus communities & connect to our members at large have worked together to develop a program designed to provide a forum for members to meet at 'the table' and discuss topics that impact us all -from healthcare, to Voter
    Suppression, to Democracy itself – we will be hitting topics that meet the moment! 

    Our first event is scheduled for Wednesday, June 1 st at 7PM CET – our inaugural topic : Democracy.

    What is your personal view and connection to democracy? Recognize autocracy before it is too
    late. What do you want? What don’t you want? How do all of the caucuses relate to the
    fundamental problem that democracy is in danger?

    Please, RSVP to attend.
