    Let's Watch 3rd Democratic Primary Debates on Sunday 📺

    Did you miss us during the August event hiatus? We're refreshed and ready to jump back into the swing of things, and hope you are too.

    We love seeing you in person at an event in Berlin, like at the debate viewing this Sunday or at book club later this month.

    A few members from Berlin attended a Germany-wide Democrats Abroad planning retreat this past weekend outside Cologne. We laid the groundwork to help even more U.S. citizens vote in 2020 -- and we can't do it without your support. Look out for a recap of the retreat in the next few weeks.

    There are a few events outside of Berlin that we think you might be interested in:

    • Democrats Abroad Oktoberfest Extravaganza in Munich on October 6, 2019
      • A celebration and fundraiser, and a great way to experience Oktoberfest for the first time (with reserved seating)
      • Watch the Oktoberfest video

    • 2019 EMEA Regional Meeting in Athens, Greece, from October 11-13, 2019
      • Meet DA leaders from all over Europe, Middle East, and Africa
      • Planning for primaries, voter registration, and other 2020 goals

    Both are great ways to connect with other Americans activists abroad, who care about civic participation and the political process. If you're curious to find out more, reply to this email!

    Democratic Debate Bingo!

    For those who missed it: earlier this week we had our Debate Bingo Fundraiser, where friends gathered to watch clips from the debate and mark their Bingo squares in support of Democrats Abroad. Throughout the clips, players marked  squares that included both iconic and infamous soundbites, heated topics, clashes between candidates, and more. As these recent debates have brought forth an array of mixed feelings for our members and Democrats altogether, the Bingo fundraiser was an opportunity for those to meet and articulate their opinions, frustrations, and hopes for the Democratic party in the next year. 

    That being said, we are more prepared than ever to hit the ground running in 2020 thanks to everyone’s support and enthusiasm on Tuesday. Stay on the lookout for our upcoming events this fall, and we look forward to seeing you all as we Get Out The Vote!
