We now have an official Democrats Abroad Mannheim Precinct and Precinct Captain! What is a DA Precinct you ask? It is a loosely organized extension of a Chapter, in this case the DA Heidelberg Chapter, that is meant to make Democrats Abroad more accessible to those of you who live farther away. So, if you live in the Mannheim area, come meet some of your fellow overseas Democrats on Wednesday 17th of January at Goldene Gans and see what it’s all about. Daniel Hoever-Eckardt has volunteered to be the Mannheim Precinct Captain, so if you have any questions about the group, you can contact him at email@example.com .
Join us for the first "Third Thursday" in the new year for a fun evening of drinks and snacks and the chance to share your thoughts on strategy for this crucial election year!
Our Pub Nights are an especially good opportunity for curious prospective members to check us out, and for all of our non-American family and friends to share their unique views on the craziness in Washington that affects all of us.
Come join us as we develop our GOTV plan for the Ruhrgebiet precinct - our largest precinct by size!
Help us mobilize every voter in the area for the 2018 midterms!
On January 21, 2017, millions of people around the world came together to march for women’s rights, human rights, equality, science, facts, and democracy. On January 20, 2018, Democrats Abroad Germany - Hamburg will commemorate this extraordinary and powerful moment by once again taking to the streets to march for democratic values, rights, and responsibilities.
Like last year, we will gather in front of the Hamburg Rathaus at 13:30. We will march toward the US Consulate beginning at 14:00 and conclude with a brief vigil at 16:00. This march is open to all who wish to peacefully show their commitment to freedom, equality, and democratic principles. We especially invite our fellow Americans living in Northern Germany to join us. 2018 is an election year and America’s Democrats are marching to the ballot box to take back Congress. If you are an American, we need your vote! If you are passionate about democracy, we need your support! So…
… if you worry about the millions of the vulnerable who will soon be deprived of health care, then March With Us!
… if you wince at every mention of pristine lands of great cultural significance which had been preserved for posterity being greedily turned over to drilling or mining, then March With Us!
… if you are sickened by the ever-widening gap between the rich and poor just reinforced by the cynical, hypocritical new tax bill, then March With Us!
… if you believe that children of illegal immigrants should be allowed to remain in the only country they know, then March With Us!
… if you feel that truth should still have a place in political discourse, then March With Us!
… if you are convinced that climate change is real and that our country should not abandon its responsibility to lead the international community in preventing a disastrous future, then March With Us!
… if you understand the important distinction between patriotism and nationalism, then March With Us!
… if you respect basic human rights and freedoms and the constitution of our country, THEN YOU MUST MARCH WITH US ON 20 JANUARY!
March with us on Saturday, January 20, 2018, as we renew our commitment to fight for women’s rights, human rights, social justice, and democracy!
Join us in Heidelberg on Saturday the 20th of January at 2:00 PM at Friedrich-Ebert-Platz as Democrats Abroad walks in solidarity with the Women’s March to mark their first anniversary. For U.S. citizens this is also your chance to take specific action to turn things around in 2018. Democrats Abroad will have a stand at the end of the March on the Marktplatz where you can request your absentee ballot/register for the 2018 midterm election. Remember, rules say that you have to request an absentee ballot EVERY election year, regardless of whether you’ve voted in the past. We have a real chance at taking back both the House and the Senate, and for this, every vote counts!
Please RSVP at https://actionnetwork.org/events/heidelberg-womens-march-2018
PLEASE NOTE THE TIME CHANGE: We begin promptly at 14:00
Trump’s degradation of American values wasn’t right last year, and it’s not right this year. If you were one of the 1500 that joined us last January, you know how invigorating it was to have each other's’ support. Come join us again for a rally and get out the vote!
Last year, we marched, we chanted, we may have froze a bit, and we had our voice heard around the world. And the Women's March worked.
It spooked Trump against the backdrop of his paltry inauguration.
It got thousands of women active in politics, run for office, and win.
It lit up Congressional switchboards with thousands of calls and put the breaks on repealing the ACA.
It made Republican Congressmen run scared -- straight to retirement.
Our voice works. It is time for us to use it again. And so on Saturday, 20 January, join the Women's March to the Polls as the first step in our march to victory in November 2018!
Grab your pussy hats, bust out a new punny sign and join us:
20 January: Women's March to the Ballot Box
- START: 14:00 at Siegestor
- END: Karlsplatz
- AFTER: Ratskeller. We will be registering American citizens to vote and request absentee ballots. First primaries are in March!
