    Heidelberg Women's March 2018

    The Women’s March in Heidelberg attracted marchers from far and wide, with nearly 500 in total turning out. The cold rain didn’t dampen spirits. On the contrary, spirits were high and motivation to stay engaged was even higher. The March marked the beginning of this crucial election year as Democrats Abroad seeks to have as many overseas U.S. citizens as possible request their absentee ballots. Be sure to request yours if you haven’t already at www.votefromabroad.org.  Here are some of our photos from the Heidelberg Women’s March.

    Heidelberg Chapter Thanksgiving Potluck 2017

    We had an impressive gathering in Heidelberg for Thanksgiving, with lots of good food and good fun. In addition to the “Red Book Exchange”, we had a slide show to look back at our many activities as a chapter. The Thanksgiving Potluck was a chance for people to get to know each other a little better and also to meet some new people. This was our last gathering in 2017, and we look forward to seeing everyone in 2018 to help Get Out The Vote and turn things around in the November midterm elections!

    Karlsruhe Area Democrats Abroad Dinner

    The Heidelberg Chapter of Democrats Abroad has many members in the Karlsruhe area who live too far to join meetings and events in Heidelberg. So, we are trying to get an informal group together in Karlsruhe.  For this purpose, we are meeting for dinner on March 7th at La Tegola Restaurant at 7:00 P.M.

    Jollystraße 19, Karlsruhe

    The restaurant would like to know how many people to expect, so please RSVP for this if you are coming, either here on Facebook or via the Democrats Abroad website, or send an email to dag-heidelberg@democratsabroad.org
