Welcome to Democrats Abroad Heidelberg!



DA Heidelberg is a chapter of DA Germany, the official country committee for US Democrats living in Germany. We almost always meet on the First Friday starting at 6:30 P.M. of each month (exceptions are during the winter holidays), and our usual meeting place is the Zum Achter restaurant (Neuenheimer Landstraße 3a, Heidelberg). There’s a lot going on, so watch this space for upcoming announcements of meetings and events, which we have year-round. If you are interested in joining us for discussion, or volunteering, please get in touch.

    Texans Abroad Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with DA Mexico


    For Cinco de Mayo, Texans Abroad will be turning our focus to the work of Democrats Abroad Mexico.

    Please join us for our next online global event as we welcome guest speaker Edgar Lopez-Vallejo, Vice Chair of DA Mexico and member of the DA Hispanic Caucus Steering Committee. We will be discussing the promise and potential of Texas voters living in Mexico. There are over a million U.S. citizens living in Mexico, and fewer than 3% of eligible voters returned a ballot in 2016. We can help turn the tide in Texas by reaching these critical voters. Come and see how you can get involved!

    We will also be discussing the 87th Session of the Texas Legislature and giving you information about key bills to support or oppose and how you can best do that. Our voices matter!

    See you on May 5th at 7:30 CET/1:30 Eastern on Zoom. Be sure to RSVP so we can send you the link!
