    Defending Democracy Together with Malcolm Nance

    On January 6, 2021, people around the world watched in horror as a vicious mob attacked the US. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Scores of people were injured and five lost their lives during the attempt to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral college win. 

    One year later, we come together to remember and reflect on the historical moment in which we find ourselves, when 58% of self-identified Republicans continue to believe the Big Lie that former President Trump won the election.

    As Democrats Abroad, we will be defending democracy the best way we know how: by registering to vote and helping others do the same. Together, we will send in our FPCAs (Federal Post Card Applications), which serve as both voter registration and ballot request forms for overseas voters. We will also use the occasion to review procedures and train ourselves to assist our members as they prepare to vote in 2022. 

    Almost exactly a year to the hour when many of us witnessed the events of January 6 unfold in real time, we will hear from a very special guest. Malcolm Nance, national security expert, bestselling author, and a longtime friend of Democrats Abroad Germany, is uniquely qualified to strengthen our determination as we face these unprecedented challenges to our democracy.  Mr. Nance will remind us both of what we can do from abroad and why it is of such vital importance that we do it.

    Please join the Democrats Abroad Germany – Munich Chapter as we kick off our GOTV and Voter Assistance efforts heading into the most consequential midterm elections of our lifetimes! RSVP today!

     

    Don’t wait! Register to vote/request your absentee ballot today at https://www.votefromabroad.org/.

    Consider making a donation to help get out the vote in 2022. Donate today at https://www.democratsabroad.org/donate.


    Malcolm Nance is a former Arabic-speaking naval intelligence counter-terrorism and intelligence officer specializing in the Middle East; a combat veteran; Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape expert; historian; and author. He spent 35 years participating in field and combat intelligence activity, including both covert and clandestine anti- and counter-terrorism support to national intelligence agencies. He is a member of the Board of Advisors at the International Spy Museum in Washington D.C. He is honored as one of the noteworthy African-Americans in Espionage and featured in the Academy Award-nominated documentary Dirty Wars.

    He is also a counter-terrorism analyst for NBC News and MSNBC.

    Malcolm is the author of several books, including The Plot to Hack America: How Putin’s Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election, the NYT’s Bestseller The Plot to Destroy Democracy: How Putin and His Spies Are Undermining America and Dismantling the West, and The Plot to Betray America: How Team Trump Embraced Our Enemies, Compromised Our Security, and How We Can Fix It.

    His latest book, They Want to Kill Americans: The Militias, Terrorists, and Deranged Ideology of the Trump Insurgency, will be out in July 2022.
