    Texans Abroad - Ann Richards’ Global Birthday Celebration

    Ann Richards’ Global Birthday Celebration

    Texas has its own “45” – and she was a force of nature! Governor Ann Richards was the last Democratic governor of the Lone Star State, larger-than-life and down-to-earth. She was a champion of women, children, people of color and working-class people. Her sharp wit was legendary.

    Join Texans Abroad as we celebrate her life and legacy with a global live stream featuring Official Musician of Texas Sara Hickman, Texas Poet Laureate Emmy Pérez, Dr. Eliz Markowitz, Jana Lynne Sanchez and many more. 

    We will get caught up on the good, the bad, and the ugly at the 87th Texas Legislature and preview the upcoming special session on redistricting. Most importantly, you will find out how you can help prepare for the 2022 midterm elections – many hands make light work and there’s work a-plenty to break the GOP stranglehold on Texas and in D.C.

    As part of the global celebration, we are asking you to show your love for Ann by submitting a photo of yourself at a local landmark – wherever in the world you are, whether it’s a far-flung village or a booming metropolis. We’ve created a birthday sign for you to download and print. All you need to do is fill in your location, snap a photo  for our photo collage and submit it using this FORM or to the email address below. It’s that easy! ***Deadline: August 15.

    All democracy-loving folks are welcome to attend! You don’t need to be a Texan to enjoy the show. Donations are optional, but we recommend a contribution of $20.22 to help us reach voters across the globe in the coming Midterms!

    Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to be involved. You can reach us at [email protected] and be sure to follow us on Twitter @TXAbroad

    “I was tested by fire, and the fire lost.” – Ann Richards (1933-2006)

    Oktoberfest Celebration: Online Wine Tasting

    If beer isn’t really your thing, but you still want to participate in Oktoberfest festivities, Democrats Abroad Germany has just the thing for you: an online wine tasting!

    In celebration of Oktoberfest, DA Germany will gather online on Saturday, September 25 from 7-9pm CEST for a lovely wine tasting night hosted by DA Berlin’s Aimee M. Male.  To attend the event, we are requesting a €10 donation.

    In order to participate in the tasting, you will need to bring your own bottle of wine.  Any wine will do - so grab your favorite or try something new with some of Aimee’s suggestions:

    • German Riesling (either labeled Trocken, or Kabinett Trocken; or Feinherb)
    • German Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir)
    • German Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc)
    • California Cabernet Sauvignon
    • California Zinfandel
    • California Chardonnay

    About Our Wine Expert

    Originally from San Francisco, Aimee has worked in the wine world for more than 20 years — from selling wines for U.S. retail stores, to making wine in the south of France and scouting new winemaking talents in Europe to bring to consumers in the United States. Currently a marketing manager and buyer for a major U.S. wine importer and a diploma candidate with the Wine & Spirits Education Trust based in London, she has made it her personal and professional goal to help wine drinkers navigate the often unnecessarily complicated world of wine, through better understanding the mechanics of taste. By learning more about how and why we taste what we do in a glass of wine, Aimee believes anyone can be a wine “expert.” She has lived in Berlin with her partner since 2006.

    The tasting will be held on Zoom and we will send participants the meeting log-in information 48 hours before the event.

    In case you’re interested: we’re also hosting an online beer tasting on October 2nd from 7-9pm CEST!  For more information about the online beer tasting, click here.

    An Oktoberfest Prize Draw will also take place throughout the two Oktoberfest events.  Please check the DAG Events page for more information or contact Courtney Newman for more information.

    **Please remember that Democrats Abroad may only accept donations from U.S. citizens.**

    DA Germany will gather online on Saturday, October 2nd at 7pm CEST for the 13th Annual Democrats Abroad Oktoberfest Extravaganza! Instead of meeting in our usually reserved gallery seats, we will meet online from the comforts of our home for an online beer tasting.

These tasting packages can only be sent to addresses in Germany and EU member states. We encourage other country committees to join in on the fun, but please note that if your shipping address is outside of Germany, ticket costs are €51 (an additional €5 is added to the ticket price to account for shipping costs).

    To reserve your tickets, you must complete this registration form (Click Here to open the form). In order to receive the beer kits in time, you must RSVP by September 13, 2021. The tasting will be held on Zoom and we will send participants the meeting log-in information 48 hours before the event.
