    Zum Achter Restaurant in Heidelberg, Germany

    Black Caucus Lunch in Heidelberg

    thumbnail.png

    Please join Germany Black Caucus Chair, Derek Bembry, and International Black Caucus Chair Angela Fobbs for lunch at Zum Achter. We had originally planned a brunch, but with the amount of interest, and the addition of a presentation, we've had to change venues (and therefore meals).


    This lunch is a chance for you to meet Derek and Angela, and learn about what the Black Caucus is doing in Germany, especially for the 2020 election. Derek's presentation will focus primarily on increasing voter turnout by focusing on youth and black voters. He will point out the opportunity in each voter segment as well as issues that appeal to both.

     

    Zum Achter is located just over the Neckar from Bismarckplatz. Public transportation access is good, Bismarckplatz is only ~5 mins by foot. Also, the bus stop Bergstraße is directly in front of the building (bus line 34). If you’re driving, the parking garage Parkhaus Brückenkopf Neuenheim is adjacent to the restaurant.

    Have you signed up to volunteer at Global Presidential Primary in Berlin on March 3rd or March 8th, 2020?

    Film Screening: Suppressed: The Fight to Vote - Democrats Abroad Leipzig-Halle

    Join Democrats Abroad as we watch Brave New Films' documentary short entitled "Suppressed: The Fight to Vote" (2019).

    The film exposes rampant voter suppression that affected the outcome of the 2018 midterm election in Georgia and the threat it poses to our elections all across the nation in 2020.

    During the 2018 midterms, millions of voters experienced suppression due to voter roll purges, poll closures, long lines of over four hours, missing absentee ballots, and strict voter ID laws that disproportionately prevented black and brown citizens from exercising their constitutional right to vote. After the film, there will be time for audience discussion and questions.

    All are welcome to attend! Though not required, please RSVP below so we know how many people to expect!

    Please help us out by sharing this event on Facebook. We look forward to meeting you!
