    Early 2021 Meetings

    Hamburg chapter members organized and/or took part in important meetings during the first quarter of 2021.

    On February 28, we held our official chapter election via Zoom. Candice Newton was elected our new Chapter Chair, and Geoff Simmons was elected Treasurer. We congratulated both Candice and Geoff on their new roles. We also thanked Vinnie Cabrera for his service as Chapter Chair and Candice Newton for her work as Treasurer (especially in 2020 – a very busy year for getting out the vote!).

    The Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on March 20 via Zoom, and several Hamburg members attended. This meeting also featured important elections in addition to a recap of the past year and goals for 2021. Our former Chapter Chair Vinnie Cabrera was elected as one of the DPCA Voting Reps.

    On March 28, we held the first chapter meeting presided over by Candice. We took stock of both Germany-wide and Hamburg accomplishments in 2020 as well as goals for this year. Discussion included plans to draft a proposal to rename the Hamburg chapter to encompass other Northern German cities, such as Bremen, Flensburg, and Lübeck, where we have a significant number of members and active Precinct Captains.

    State Outreach Teams Part 3

     

    Join us for the third session of State Outreach Teams to find out how you can be a part of these Global Teams. Key State Outreach is a new addition to the Democrats Abroad network. Following the success of Texans Abroad, we now have groups forming around ten states:

    Arizona

    Florida

    Georgia

    Michigan

    New Jersey

    Ohio

    Pennsylvania

    Texas

    Virginia

    Wisconsin

    With New York and California soon to follow!

     

    On Sunday, July 11 at 3pm CEST/9am Eastern, we will sharing tips, strategies and information on all three of our State Outreach pillars:

    -Voter Mobilization: educate and mobilize overseas voters; hold informational and community-building events; build coalitions with affinity groups on the ground.

    -Ballot Protection: develop and deepen overseas voting expertise in conjunction with Vote From Abroad; build relationships with election officials and state legislatures.

    -Legislation: coordinate with Global efforts to track bills being introduced to state legislatures; mobilize voters at home and abroad around relevant issues.

    Each group chooses which of these pillars is most urgent and relative to their state. Come join the conversation!

    This is the third of three State Outreach meetings. Missed the first two? You’re still welcome to attend! A recording of the previous events and supporting materials can be made available.

    Please RSVP for the Zoom link below.  Bring your friends, spread the word, and don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions.

    Join us and help build a global community of activists working to get out, protect and defend the vote!

    Democratically yours,
