    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.

    Interested in Volunteering for Events and GOTV? Join the PA Abroad State Team!

    Join us on Wednesday, June 15th at 12pm EST / 6pm CEST for out next PA Team planning meeting!

    Our DA Pennsylvania State Team works on behalf of overseas Pennsylvania voters—both the 35,000 who registered to vote in the 2020 election, and the many more yet to be engaged. We are dedicated to getting out the vote and growing the number of overseas Pennsylvania voters to maximize turnout in the midterm and beyond. We know that in a close race, our votes can be the margin of victory that elects Democrats. This year, we want to make that margin bigger than ever.

    We offer PA voters a range of support services, including voter assistance and events designed to bring Pennsylvanians living abroad closer to the leaders who represent them. If you are interested in helping with these efforts, write to [email protected] to learn more. All are welcome, regardless of where they vote or how much time they can commit.

    An easy way to support the team’s work is to follow us on social media and help us amplify the call to PA voters living abroad. You can find us at:

    Where: TBA in Münster
    RSVP: Please RSVP here to obtain location information or send us an email
     
    Last month the Atlantic published a piece by sometimes controversial academic Jonathan Haidt with the provocative title "Why the Past 10 Years of American Life Have Been Uniquely Stupid." His central theme is that extremism on social media is primarily to blame for the country's deep divisions. He makes several controversial arguments concerning the need for consensus, party politics and how the fragmentation that we now fact is "unique" in American history. The article is ripe for a deep dive discussion, especially considering that only two weeks after its publication, two Dem leaders,  Jamie Raskin of Maryland and Ro Khanna of California called for the party to preach less, reclaim patriotism and "stay out of the political correctness business." 
     
    For those of you not up for a long read, you can also participate by watching or listening via the links below. Or just do a quick Google search. Haidt was everywhere online after publishing this.
     
    We hope you can join us.

    July Phonebanking Stammtisch

    Join us for our NEW monthly PHONEBANKING STAMMTISCH on the first Sunday of each month at 6 p.m.!

    Phonebanking is one of the most effective ways that we use to reach out to new voters to make sure that they are registered to vote and to make sure that WE WIN in November!

    For this important endeavor, we need YOUR help, and since it is more fun to do it together, we are starting our new PHONEBANKING STAMMTISCH on the FIRST SUNDAY of the month. Join us online via Zoom with a glass of wine or beer or tea or coffee to reach out to our fellow Americans who are just waiting to hear from you!  

     

    Have you never done phonebanking?
    Then join our Phonebanking Coordinator one hour before the Stammtisch, and she’ll show you how it is done! We will start the training at 5 p.m., and by 6 p.m. you will be an expert!

    Join us for this fun evening so that we can help make democracy strong!

    June is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBTQ) Pride Month to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots and work to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for the LGBTQ community. In June of 1969, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City staged an uprising to resist the police harassment, and persecution LGBT Americans were commonly subjected to. This uprising marks the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBT Americans. 2022 marks the 53rd anniversary of the June 1969 Stonewall Riots. This year is also the 30th Anniversary of Christopher Street Day (CSD) Frankfurt.

    The Frankfurt Chapter and the Wiesbaden-Mainz Chapter will be setting up an information stand for the duration of the event and walking in the CSD Parade on Saturday to show our support.

    Come help us find Americans living overseas and get them to help us with next year's voting efforts! We'll need help on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday times to be determined. We will also need people to walk in the parade.

    Further details will follow. Please RSVP to the event if you’re interested in attending, and you will receive the link to the signup sheet.

    Join Democrats Abroad on Saturday, 17 July, as we take to the streets to celebrate love and pride!
