    We’re just two weeks out from the midterm elections. We hope you’ve got your ballot filled out and you’re about to send it back to the U.S. -- if not, just hit reply on this email and let us know how we can help!

    Now’s not the time to rest yet:

    We still need your help to make calls to Americans abroad who we haven’t been able to reach yet. All you need is a computer and a few minutes. Join our last phonebanking push.

    This Wednesday (Oct 24th), check out “Glitter Emergency - Art Against The Right” at Hallesches Haus, a benefit salon with art and music. We hope we’ll see you there!

    For the U.S. 2018 midterm elections, we’ll be hosting a breakfast on Wednesday, November 7th starting at 7:30am to watch the live returns together. Come by before work, grab a coffee, and discuss the results in the company of Americans and friends! More details below & don't forget to RSVP.

    On November 12th, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is honoring the Women’s March USA with its annual Human Rights Award. Several organizers from the U.S. committee will be coming to Berlin for the ceremony, and you’re all invited! Details & RSVP link at the bottom.
